    Good evening all I trust you are all well and enjoyed the holidays. Well the Cheetah is finished ! Scratch built the missiles yesterday painted and attached today along with the center line fuel tank. Not totally happy with the end result as I feel the canopy could have fitted a little better, but its another one to add to the ever growing collection of the Mirage family. Any how I hope you like her and have a great new year, when it arrives. Peter

    Good evening all, the Cheetah is now standing on her own 3 feet! All that's left is to do a bit more weathering, attach the u/c doors, pitot, scratch build the R-Darter missiles and add the fuselage tank to finish her off. Hope to get that done over the weekend before the festivities. Please enjoy and thanks Pete

    Good evening, decals are on and have been misted over to tone them down, weathering done and MIG ultra matt coating applied. A few evenings now without any modelling but I will get back to it on Sunday. Just the U/C to do, antenna, center line fuel tank and a couple of scratch built Darby AAM to do. Enjoy and thanks for looking. Pete

    Evening, have got the first two colours on to the Cheetah now. Its finished in the lighter scheme, the aircraft is going to be Cheetah C 347. Next will be the wheel bays and the false canopy. Things are moving along quite nicely now and my SAAF (Cookiecutter) low vis markings have turned up from MAV decals. Enjoy Pete

    Evening all, sorry for the slow progress but getting there. The Cheetah is primed and pre-shaded now so after a couple of days to dry I can get onto the bit I really enjoy, the paint job. I have decided to go for the lighter air defense colours on this one. All for now Pete
  10. Nice work, looking forward to seeing this finished. Pete

    Hi, slow progress at the moment as a lot going on in the non modelling world. Anyhow here is the latest pic of where the Cheetah is at, must say its looking the part now. Enjoy Pete

    Managed to get some rubbing down done and attach most of the Scaleworx parts, its starting to look like a Cheetah now ! More sanding to do over the weekend and then I will give her a coat of primer and check for flaws. I can't decide on the finish at the moment, either the interceptor scheme or ground attack. Enjoy Peter

    Evening all, back from Scale Model World now so stuck a few bits of the Cheetah together. Its starting to look the part now but needed a lot of filler, to be honest this was probably down to my over enthusiasm to get on with it. Any how enjoy. Pete

    Evening all, the answer is the Atlas Cheetah C of the SAAF. The base kit is the Italeri 1:72nd Kfir C7 with the Scaleworx resin conversion. I have just cobbled the parts together so you can see what it will eventually look like, Cheers Pete the Scaleworx conversion, the bits and the overall idea.
