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...?

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

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