Ok. Non supersonic  then.

 

Given that by the time they were re-engined the Israeli SMB.2s have been long relegated to ground attack duties, not really important and more than compensated by the increased payload and survivability.

:analintruder: The French North American F-100 Super Sabre!

I've often thought that as well. As much as I like the Super Sabre and find it an attractive airplane, the Super Mystere is closer to being just beautiful.

I'd definitely like to see the Mystere IV!

I fully agree with you SAT69 !

 

It is quite logical on a ''sales potential'' point of view that the next 1/48 scale project for Special Hobby / FRROM could be

the Dassault MD.454 Mystère IV, that have an operational career in the Air Arms of :

 

France (241 delivered) ;

Israel (61 delivered) ;

and

India (110 delivered) ;

Is the MB Mk.6 the correct seat for a French SMB.2?

Or did it have a specialised version?

What did the Israelis use?

AFAIR THE MB was fitted to the Sa'ars sold to Honduras. The israeli planes used the original seat. Will confirm later.

@Bozothenutter, according to the book "Les chasseurs Dassault - Ouragans, Mysteres et Super Mysteres" French SMB.2s where equipped with a Sud Aviation 10-100-7 ejection seat, built under license from Republic. Good from 80 kt. and 500 feet. The MB Mk.6 brought zero-zero capability.

Found some contemporary Republic seats on Scalemates,  but haven't delved too deep yet....

Good find, thank you. Bookmarked.

This makes it look like a F-105 seat?

 

Knowing next to nothing about the F-105, I  can't say, sorry. Perhaps one of our resident experts can chime in?

Me neither, just looked up Republic aircraft on Scalemates, detail sets and compared seats 🤣

But according to wikipedia the Ouragan and Mystere IV had the Martin Baker Mk4 ejection seat.Why did the Super Mystere after them have another ejection seat and the Mirage IIIC again the Martin Baker Mk4?

That's why I asked the question,  I thought the Mk.6 was a bit 'out of sequence' as well. 

Hoping an aftermarket specialist will make specific seats/cockpit for it. (Maybe SH themselves?)

I found this booklet about the Super Mystere from 1992 on amazon but 58 Euro is very expensive for 32 pages.

I have it. IMO not worth the asking price for the printed edition, and barely for the digital one. It's very old and very basic, around the same age as the one I quoted above but far less comprehensive, even when is just covering one subject versus three for the other.
