Almost - I consider a white belly with dark grey-blue upper sides, just like the Etendard IVM.

That would look gorgeous  :thumbsup:

I think so, too. Pretty simple, and I got a surplus decal sheet from a vintage Heller Etendard. Maybe with two AS.30 missiles and/or Matra rocket pods...?

A bit of restrained retail therapy then ;D
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

From the Modelzone sale, by mail order (because I thought at the time that I was going to be too ill to get out):

Airfix 1/72nd Focke-Wulf Fw189 - postwar French in Algeria/Indo-China or maybe post-war neutral Czechoslovakian?

Airfix 1/72nd Blohm & Voss Bv141 - ditto (Gnome-Rhone engine if French).

Academy 1/100th F-15 Eagle - dirt cheap canopy donor

Airfix/JB 1/76th Bedford Mk.4 truck

2 x Airfix/JB 1/76th M113 Fire Support Vehicles

Picked up a Hasegawa Post War Lancaster for a decent price and got a East Bloc Avro Shackleton from Poland off eBay.
Also picked up the new Trumpeter and Hobbyboss 2013/14 catalogue at the same time as the Lancaster

First kit related purchase of the year

Sheet of SAAF decals off ebay.  Admittedly the Springbok type rather than the earlier orange centre type D but still very useful as they have the fin flashes too.

I've already got a lot of the FSVs, plus quite a few of the other JB/Airfix ones.

How cheap is cheap? These are currently 4.00 each in MZ.
