Hi Alberto,

long time now since your last update.

Have you already finished your Mirage?

Would be great to see the progress of your build…

Hi, not finished yet! On early June I left Milan to go to my holiday place in Tuscany, I will continue the job when I will be back in September. Before leaving I just gave a coat of the lower surface color and a coat of the main upper color.

Very nice progress Alberto! 
The light blue and the sand look spot on!

You have a holiday place in Tuscany?

That‘s one of the most beautiful regions in Italy. Have been there once very close  to Siena on an agriculture. 
Enjoy your stay there!

Hello everybody, after a lot of time I come back to my Shahak project.

In facts, when I came back from my vacation place, I got almost immediately involved in a big commitment regarding the inauguration of the new church just finished to build in the area where I live, so modelling was put aside for another two and half months.

But eventually, I stared painting the camou, see pictures if you like.

Hi everybody,

some more pictures of my "in progress" Shahak: added landing gear and further detailed the pipework.

Also painted and decalled supplementary fuel tanks.

Next will be to work on fading upper surface colors.

By the way, Happy New Year !!!

Alberto

Many thanks for your nice comments! 

By the way, during last Summer, when I was in my holiday place, I started a little project that I just completed. It's totally different from my usual subjects, it's made by an Italian company called "Revival" and it's in 1:20 scale. Look here:

Hi everybody, after some time I'm coming with some pictures of my Shahak with some decals on! Some more will follow soon, also because I'm consideering to replace David's stars with darker ones!

Looks very nice Alberto. Great work with the decals!

One thing regarding the taxi-lights on the front landing gear: it is not installed on Israeli Mirage III CJs. 

Hi, many thanks for your comment! taxi-lights will soon disappear from my model! In the mean time I've found that blue color of Israeli star is probably too pale and I'm preparing new darker ones.
