Breguet (Westland) Br.1070 Seche
« on: April 06, 2018, 08:54:28 am »
Been working on this for a week actually - didn't know if the 'concept' would work. This will be the French version of a joint venture with Westland for a navy jet attack aircraft.

Pictures to follow maybe even a completed kit !

Based on a Westland airframe..

Didn't have time to post the build thread so here it goes in retrospect.

The kit is a frogski Westland Wyvern (no !) bought off of ebay as complete. That is complete with broken undercarriage and missing the wheels hey he.

First job was surgery on the exhausts....



Same on the otherside (technical term) but here is a white metal nose cone from an su-7, I think.

Added some bomb halves to give an indentation and the hollowed out the fuselage.



Note I reversed the prop shaft to give the nose cone something to attach to.

A little paint  (Halfords primer)



and then add the cockpit - the seat is an Aeroclub white metal one

A Satin covering and then some decals from the spares box




I added a needle for the pitot tube and some white metal undercarriage from the spares box. The arrestor hook is down because no matter how much lead I packed into the nose she still sat on her tail !

Not too far from the Avon powered Wyvern proposal, although the drawings for that are based more on the earlier Wyvern with the more squared off fin.  Don't think it would need the taller fin nor the finlets but hey, your model.

I think the white metal nose cone thing is the Aeroclub one for the Lightning.

Good work!  Like it a lot.

I wonder how the nose would look if one continued the upper decking down to a Super Mystere-style ovoid intake.

IIRC, the Avon powered one used an early S2 fuselage with the engine in an extended nose.  The old Maintrack Wyvern TF1 conversion with a Matchbox Meteor NF11 intake is a good basis.  Would probably still have the dihedral tailplanes but no finlets.  ISTR a drawing of it in the Tony Buttler British Secret Projects Vol 3.

There's something about a Wyvern that triggers the Whiffness in many of us.

Y'day at the MK Show we were right opposite the Coventry Club, and one of their members had 4-5 FAA 1/48 aircraft models on show, and his Wyvern TOWERED over the lot of them!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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