GusMac Posted September 16, 2021 Share Posted September 16, 2021 Hi all, this was a project to push my skills with resin conversions having only used aftermarket seats and cockpits before. Also looked to improve my masking skills with the paint job. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the result, although that was helped in no small part by the quality of the conversion. It's from John Wiedeman at Scaleworx in South Africa and the mouldings and fit are top notch, better than the fit of the kit itself! They offer a number of conversions for the Mirage III kits and I'd heartily recommend them. My go to paints previously were Tamiya and Ammo acrylics but I couldn't get the colours from Tamiya and I wasn't convinced by the robustness of the Ammo paints for all this masking. So, based on a few recommendations from others on here, I used the AK Real Color paints and I'm definitely a convert. They thin easily, spray beautifully and give a bomb proof finish. The scheme was based on a few pictures of the airframe online. The original airframe that wore this was a Cheetah C but the external differences with the E are minimal, so a bit of artistic licence involved. 8 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
