Cheetah C conversion


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone today , not 

in my introduction , I told you that I am a fan of the mirage , So , let me show you , not exactly a Mirage , but a sort of ... a hybrid , , midway of a Kfir , and a Mirage 

this conversion , is based upon the Italieri kit , , with a new resin nose cone , and miscellaneous  other specific parts ... the fuselage was stretched to 19 mm behind the cockpit ... thank you for viewing 

cheers 

Alain

Really nice build. Is that the Scaleworx conversion set or did you scratch build it?

 

Carl

thanks for the comments !!!!!!

Scaleworx didn't make a conversion for this version , He made a conversion for the Cheetah  E version , and the Cheetah D ...A friend of mine provided me the main parts , namely the nose cone ( part I had to reworked on because done for the old Revell kit ) , and the  long fairing underneath  .

Hi Alain, that's a beautiful build, especially as you didn't use a conversion.

I used the Scaleworx Cheetah conversion and I can heartily recommend the quality of John's products. If you're interested I painted mine like the South African display aircraft which can be seen here

Hi Gus

thank you for your comment !! I know your Cheetah , that's a great build , I am usually not keen of this kind of paint scheme , but i have the Scaleworx Cheetah D , and you give me the idea for painting mine as you did here , it's very eyes catching scheme 

you were talking about John 's conversion , , you said that it needs perseverance etc ..  , but it's worth it , I agree , I am currently on his Mirage III D conversion , a " hard way " , but I really enjoy this build
