Built to explore low-speed handling of delta-winged aircraft, in advance of the French national "Entente" SST programme...

Is that the old FROG Fairey FD2 kit?

You've made a SUPERB job of it if so!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That just looks so perfectly French.  Good show!

Didn't they lend a couple to the Brits for the record-breaking flights?  Apparently they gave them a Fairey designation to keep-up national morale.

Same question here. If it's the case, then the result is awesome!

But it's looking great (and very French), nevertheless!

Tres bon.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I'll join in with everybody else. Really well done and it does look terribly French
Doesn't it? Must be the classic French roundels and silver/NMF could only look more so
With an artfully placed thin red cheat line and its name in italic? Script in black on the nose
Somewhere. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

And the red airbrake markings are totally Dassault, aren't they?

Beautiful indeed.

Yup, was there a reason for it, other than it gave them a "look" ?

Pass. Maybe a l'Armee de l'Air ruling? But only Dassault designs seem to have their brakes set into the upper surface of the wings so maybe it only applied to them?
