1/54 Solido Nord Griffon II
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+++
Very rare kit of the unusual Mach 2+ ramjet/turbojet design. Solido produced a small line of plastic kits in the early 1960s but by 1967 all production ended. Very cleanly molded and large kit in sliver, black, clear and red plastic. Original tube of Monavac cement is still included and is still good! Decals and instructions are excellent. Kit has never been started and is 100% complete. The Griffon was dual propulsion like the Leduc 022; a turbojet was used for takeoff and got the airplane to speed, where the ramjet took over. The Griffon performed well, reaching a top speed of Mach 2.19 in 1958. However, there were difficulties with the ramjet design. The program was cancelled in favor of the Mirage family of fighters by Dassault.
