Massive long shot here I know....
« on: September 28, 2017, 01:21:20 pm »
I am in need of a complete set of landing gear for an Airfix 1/72nd scale Super Etendard, the one I have build has lost its legs and they are nowhere to be found, much like many other builds I had in storage. I also had another unbuilt kit of it but that too has eluded me. If anyone has a full kit they can part with, I would be interested in that too.
Cheers
Chris

If it's the same kit as the Heller Super Etendard, kit no. 80360, then I do have one going spare.

It says 'Heller Humbrol' on the box so it could well be.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I think they are all the same kit, so that will do for me. What do you want for said Kit, erm...Kit ??

I am still in nee of the landing gear to fit the Heller/humbrol/ airfix Super etendard, I think I can just about copy the doors in styrene sheet, landing gear are a bit too small and fiddly for me to replicate.

How different are they to the earlier Etendard IV Chris?

I am not sure to be honest Kit, I know the aircraft are very similar to each other, I will have to have a look at some pictures of them both.

Just had a look, they are as far as the instruction manual I have just looked at very similar, the rear ones anyway.
