The Sud-Ouest Aviation (SNCASO) S.O. 4050 Vautour II was kitted out by Azur in 2011, now Special Hobby have released this kit with the Cyrano Radar nose version, which was used by the French and Israeli forces.

Great review Andy.

Thinking of picking this up based on your review. One question though, does the kit include the Yabelet ecm pod?
Thanks

Hi,
The kit only has the two underwing fuel pods and the camera housing which fit under the engine nacelles.

Thanks.

Those are better than nothing. I'll do a little digging around in my references and the interweb to see what I can find. It may well turn out to be something that wasn't well documented at the time so there's little to go by. But if I find anything I'll share it.

Looking forward to getting it though. One of those aircraft I never thought anyone would kit.
