The Vampire fighter became one of the greatest export achievements of Great Britain in the post-war period. Due to its very simple and sophisticated design, fairly high performance and favorable price, Vampire became the very first or one of the first jet-planes in air forces of many countries. Also France, trying feverishly to catch up with jet-planes development, bought these machines in Great Britain and started their licence production. Later, Mistral airplanes were also produced, which were Vampires with different engine. Both the Armée de l´Air and the Aéronavale (the French Navy Air Arm) were equipped with the Vampire fighters.
Highly detailed parts are of excellent quality (by means of 3D CAM design and steel mouldings) and are laid out in two frames accompanied by a third, clear frame and decal sheet for four French aircraft. The blue overal machine flew with the Aéronavale and the three others served with the Armée de l´Air, two of them in aluminium dope overal and with their original British serial numbers retained, one also with remnants of the RAF roundels (you can find them on the decal sheet). The last French machine is in green-grey camouflage. All machines wear their unit badges and also stencils (all of them also on the decals).
