  1. 1/72nd Mirage iiiS plus iiiR

    The cockpit color was overall black in Mirages IVA, it was blue-grey in the IVP with black consoles
  2. Airfix Avro Vulcan scribing query

    After scribing, I sand the part with 600 wet paper, then 000 steelwhool to remove the dust out of the engraved lines, then dishwashing soap with an old electric toothbrush. Some runs some trichloroethylene or extra fluid glue to level the bottom of the lines but I don't feel it's necessary.
  3. Jaguar GR3 internal airframe colour

    Half British...But I agree on the color ;-)
  4. Frog mirage IIIE colours

    It is the way many buildings instructions tell to do. I think it can do the trick.
  5. Frog mirage IIIE colours

    Actually, the topside colours faded badly. On some pictures, the green is almost brown and the grey is very clear. So,any kind of NATO dark green and NATO blueish grey could suit. The biggest challenge is to match the underside color wich is labelled as metallic grey, aka something in the between of...grey and metal.
  6. Ka-6d wing leading edge colour

    It is to avoid erosion fron dust and sand
  7. It depends on the location of the seam. Some will be unreachable after assembly is complete or surrounded by details wich make sanding difficult. You have to figure how to sand each of them and make a decision about the balance of ease to sand/detail destruction and rebuilding.
  8. Bort number colours

    I don't think it is related to the role. I am working on su-15 at the moment and it can bear bort numbers of different colors.
  9. Mirage IVA help

    Hi, The Mirage IV A did not carry BOZ and PHIMAT at the sama time as they are both chaffs dispenser. For the considered time frame, you should go with aBOZ or a PHIMAT under the right wing and a Barracuda jammer under left wing. The early Barracuda was a single band jammer, the late one was a twin band jammer but I think it appeared later.
  10. Armée de l'air Jaguar on gulf war'91, undersides color

    The underside remained regular metallic grey.
  11. French AF Jaguar A in Desert Storm questions

    During Desert Storm, some french Jaguar were overpainted in a hurry with some acrylic paints bought from hardware stores in the vicinity of Toul airbase and St Dizier airbase. They weathered badly and rapidly so the colours were alterate and if I were you, I would not bother too much with the shades accuracy. My 2 cents :-)

    The camo pattern is the same as the regular green/grey camo, just replace the gray by the lightest colour and your done
  13. French and British Jaguar fuel tanks...

    RP-36 and RP-35 were both produced by SECAN, in the same frame time, they shared the same external dimension, so I guess they were externally identical. I think that the differences are a matter of internal plumbing/wiring according to aircraft type specificity. It seems to me that the RAF tanks are different. Their central body section seems more conical but I have no clue on that.
  14. French and British Jaguar fuel tanks...

    The external fuel tanks were RP-36. They fitted underwing and centerline as well. The Mirage F-1 used RP-35. Both tanks were 1200 liters. I think that, from a modeller's perspective, you can swap them. The fins were always installed (I think the cases were not jeetissonned in the DEFA cannon but I don't remember)
  15. Tornado EF3

    Italeri/Revell Jaguar has one in the box. The Revell Torndo has Alarm missiles
