... Hello, as most of the reviews and pics of these models went down with the late DHP ; let's use them as a testbed for a first post here...

Here's the Super Puma, 1st of the serie:






Next, the Super Frelon from the Aéronavale:



on the side, a VAB to give an idea of the size of the model by comparison...







Still the only game in town in this scale for the first French "heavy" (the Mach 2 model kit being by the way tricky to say the less ; even for experienced modellers and mich more expensive than the magazine model). Too bad the publisher didn t consider adding a second to the collection (the dark blue Exocet test helo would have made an excellent candidate).

Very nice. I wouldn't mind adding that Super Frelon to my collection.

.... The Super Frelon isn t available anymore on the collection s site (we still can dream for a restock) or at the usual French retailers of the serie. E Bey prices are often too much compared to the original price (14€).

.... The only solution for now would be to have contacts in Spain or Belgium or in Brazil where the serie is still running and models available at the publisher's.

.... About the models themselves, they were good for the price (those 2 ; there were exceptions) with a good proportion of metal (main fuselage body being cast in alloy with the rest plastic)..

-------------------------------------------

And now a few pics of the third french of the collection: the Dolphin



another French Navy's one (la "Royale") with this AS 365 N:





this time, the scale "comparator" is a Roland missiles launcher...




as the original comments, reviews etc are no longer available elsewhere ; I ll try to answer questions if any...
