Sud-Est S.E.2415 Grognard II

A second prototype of the Grognard, the SE.2415 Grognard II, flew in February 1951. A two-seater, it was damaged in a belly landing. The definitive production version would have been the SE.2418, which was to have been powered by Rolls-Royce Tay turbojets, but the SO Vautour was selected to meet the Armee de l'Air's ground-attack requirement instead.

I am also starting a 1 /48 scale model of this aircraft, probably same kit as RGDS mentioned. I don't think there are any other kits.

Do you know where I can get any pictures, especially coloured pictures of this plane? It sure would help as pertains the models accuracy.

Good evening,

I'm building a 1 /48 scale model of the SE2415 in plastic, and I have great difficulties finding good documents (detailed pictures) of the real aircraft.

Any chance you could provide me with some ?

I'll make pictures of the model once finished and I'll mail them over to you.

I'd love to see a plastic or resin scale model of this type.


Do you have any comments?
