Sud-Ouest Vautour IIN
scale Vautour IIN is available online from Squadron.com
Here is Hi-Tech's 1/48 scale Vautour IIN two-seater.
This is the most difficult kit I have ever built. It needed loads of swear
words and filler to see it finished.
The resin pieces were excellently formed but they did not fit inside the
plastic fuselage halves. I had to sand and grind both resin and plastic.
The wing fit is terrible and I used car body filler to sort them out in the
The white metal is poorly cast and needs lots of cleaning up.
I used IPMS Israel's magazine as a reference. This was fantastic, with colour
profiles and B&W photos. This aircraft was named 'Vampire' and was destroyed in
a ground fire. Marking were made on the computer with insignia from Isradecal
Overall Hi-Tech's Vautour IIN was a tough nut that would still be in a shoe
box were it not for the inspiration of my friend Yoav. However, Hi-Tech have at
least given us a kit to start with. Madmen (& women) will build them - but only
one I guess! When finished this is an impressive model and very large. It will
look excellent next to my Aeroclub Canberra, but that's another story!
