Looking at the aft fuselage and engine, I'm more inclined to suggest a dry F404/F414 instead of a Spey, that looks pretty tight for even the early Spey and the Spey-Skyhawk was definitely looking at widening the A-4 fuselage as well as enlarging the intakes.

Ok, go with a dry version of F-404/F-414. Physically, how can I suggest the engine modification ? Based on 1/48th Atar 9K50 and RM12 in my stash, I supposed that a dry F-414/F-404/RM12 should be shorter than an Atar 8K50 ?

Greg, thanks for suggestion but I will stay with the actual 3 contender :
- real French Navy A/C
- Singapore (love those roundel  :-* )
- US Navy (to go with my Rafale)

If I have to add a country, it will be the Tha´ one (thanks to your suggestion) or an Australian one  :P

Look at the modifications Singapore had to make to install dry F404s in their A-4s.  As I remember, there's a scoop for cooling one of the relocated accessories on the new AMAD (Airframe Mounted Accessory Drive) that goes with the F404 as well as modified access doors underneath to get to the AMAD without removing the engine.  There's also a discharge grill for the air turbine starter on the AMAD.

No worries - I might do the Thai one.  It is obscure enough to force people to go digging up their references to check if the Thai's did have them...  ;D

A RAN one is also nice - perhaps as a interim measure pending the delivery of their Mirage F1O(M)s ;)

Speaking of RAN ones, here is a beauty Nick did about 4yrs ago:

I think the Super ╔tendard would benefit from having wing-tip mounted missile launch rails for smaller AAM.  Perhaps using the parts from a Rafale towards that purpose.

You read in my mind Greg  8)
Thanks for the reminder of the build. I knew that I already see an Australian A/C...

Thanks all for the suggestion. I already started to write a back story for RSAF A/F-11S (and SU for upgraded A/C) Super Etendard. I will start to do some profiles before the build to let me the time to decide between RSAF of French Navy (even if I already think about buying a second box to do both of them  :P)

  • Distorting a reality near you.
  • Reinvented Austria and the Stuka....Now what?
Another change you could make is to switch the inflight refueling probe to a fixed one, like what was seen on Mirage F.1s and use the vacant housing for some sort of electro optical gear, such as what was seen on the F-101B Voodoo

I had a similar idea but without the change of refuelling probe. I'm thinking to had an IRST/OSF-like on one side of the refuelling probe for the MLU version of my whif (great line of the backstory are done, but I still have to work on detail and evenement and of course, do the translation from french to english  :-[ )

Anyway, I will try to do a profile with the Mirage F-1 refuelling probe to see if it's good for me  :)

You can actually get decals for this in both 1/72 and 1/48

But you can try to email Sylvain to see if he plan a reprinted like some other reference  ;)

Greg, I finished my story about the SuE. I will finish the translation tomorrow night and send you a copy to have your opinion (+ 1 or 2 other things  ;) )

Yesterday I picked up the 1/72 Heller E for another project but it did not work out.

Looking at new intakes, new radar nose, new engine with afterburners/reheat, upgraded landing gear, wingtip missile rails.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
