Mirage IIIC IAF

Recommended Posts

Hi

I started this kit about 3 months ago and I have just finished it.

The kit is horrible. There is no cockpit detail and the seat looks like a grave stone. The landing gears bays don´t exist and the the engine is a hole in back of the kit. :thumbsup:

But it was a gift, so I decided to build it.

At first I modified the air intakes. They were flat and in the real plane they are rounded.

Then I went to the engine. I made the turbine and used a spinner hub as exhaust cone.

After that I made the afterburner duct.

For the first time I used home made PE. They are good, but not comparable to eduard ones.

After that I modified the cockpit. I made a complete new cockpit, seat and panel.

After Mr. Richter made a visit to Chile on 27 Februar at 3:34 am the kit sufered from serious damage.

I worked hard to fix it, but sadly there was something I couldn't fix, the engine I made is now flying inside the kits fuselage.

Well done on a remarkable achievment considering the kit quality you started out with,

in the end your hard efforts paid off, and that NMF finish along with red markings and Israeli isignia just make it look "the business"
