Hi all,

 

I just realised that I never posted any image of my Ouragan build from a couple of years ago. So, to put things right ....

I am not proud of this one. Maybe that is why I didn't post it at the time ;).

Ah ha, that sounds good too, Adrian. Its a cute little fighter. My emphasis has been on Latin operators, hence the El Salvador colours. Good luck wit yours!

Hi chaps.

 

I’ll get my camera out when I get a few minutes :). Thanks for all your comments.

 

I’m still not convinced I deserve them, though.

Great show on this more French than French plane!

Did you add the riveting, or is Valom the guilty party? I love it!

Martin,

 

Another really nice effort from you, lovely job.

 

Love the subject, not so sure about the kit though, not a fan of all those so called rivets (scaled up they'd be divots).  How did the kit go together?  Does it offer more detail than the Heller kit (which wouldn't be difficult)?

 

Good to see some unusual forces stuff!

Hi all,

 

thanks again for the boost in confidence with this one.

 

As I recall it was pretty straight forward to build. It suffered from the usual lack of locating lugs but otherwise fine. 

 

I agree, the rivets are horrendous! 

 

I have no knowledge of the Heller kit so cant compare. This one does come with resin cockpit and wheel wells.

Maybe, then, the Valom is not so bad. At least it has engraved panel lines, Adrian.

 

By the way, I like your F-105 image :)

The riveting is as moulded by Valom.
