Thanks all for your feedback.

Corrected the faults yesterday:

Masking was a bit complicated because I didn’t want to cover the decals with masking tape to avoid the risk of tearing them away.

But everything worked.

Now I can start with the unmasking of the windshield and the final assembly.

Hope that no more surprises await me.

Thanks all for your feedback.

I‘m not building it for a contest but for the Mirage SIG in Telford this year Kevin.

@ Hubert: Great to hear that you are back from your holidays! 

I have to admit that it’s not done yet but I go to the model cellar and finish her until Sunday. Hope that you can keep quiet till then…

Since I knew which reaction awaited me from Hubert I was really very busy tonight.

Attached all gear-doors and their actuators:

Front landing gear:

Big main landing gear doors:

They do not hang straight downward because space for the centerline tank has to be kept free.

Unmasked the windshield (no surprises occurred) and added the 2 instruments (clock and reserve compass) to the frame and the seat to the pit:

This is how she looks like nearly complete:

Only work left:

- Add some careful weathering to the underside and upperside

- Glue tanks to wing

- Glue rockets to wing

- Glue canopy to cockpit

Thanks for your patience Hubert. The finish line is very close now. ;):D:popcorn:

It's hard to believe all of those misshapen parts have become the beautifully detailed landing ear and landing gear bays we see today, Kai!  And the cockpit looks wonderful.  I'm not sure if I ever saw it before you closed it up.  Just amazing!

 

Glad to see you so close to the finish!

Thank you Craig.

As promised I completed the weathering today and added the wingtanks.

Weathering was done with Tamiya Weatherine Sets and an old brush. 

I kept it to a minimum since the IDF-Mirages were very well maintained:

Tomorrow I will add the Shafrir2 rockets and the canopy and then it’s finished Hubert !😅

Already started with the diorama-plate and will add 2 maintenance crew and their tools:

I think they fit perfectly regarding era and clothing for the hot environment. 

Thanks for following my build, for all the positive and critical feedback and the tipps. It’s really a great community here with lots of awesome modelers. 

Cheers

Kai
