Dadas posted a topic in Mirage GBHi! I would like to join the GB with another Mirage F1C (suprise ) My choice - F1C, Armee de l'Air EC 1/12, No. 16 , Tiger Meet 1991 Original Kit and accessories
Hi, Since I didn't meet the past two group builds' deadlines on time, I've chosen a build I hope will prove less time-consuming. I don't have much time this year, additionally I'm a slow builder and when dissatisfied I rather tear something off and start again than just leave it be. Initially I really wanted to do a Mirage IVA because I have a nice and complicated modification plan for the Heller kit, but that'll have to wait till another time. So instead I'll do a super smart looking air defence Mirage F.1C in the time frame between 1975 and 1982. I haven't quite made my mind up as to the version; the F.1C-200 which comes standard in the kit or the vanilla F.1C which requires some modification. I'm slightly partial to an F.1C-200 from EC 1/5 Vendée but we'll see about that. Oh look, here's a random picture... As I'm now working on an 'Hangarette' aircraft shelter to complement this project, seen behind the aircraft in above shot, the Mirage build won't start straight away. I'll include pics of that project in this thread. Jay
I'm nearly finished with my 1/48 SR-71 rebuild so the timing is good to start a new build and get in on a group build as well. I bought this kit of an ESCI Armee de l'Air Mirage F1C nearly 30 years ago and I think it's time to finally build it! I'm not sure if I will make it as a tiger meet version, but similar. I got a bunch of aftermarket parts for it as well including a resin cockpit set, resin intakes, metal undercarriage parts with resin wheels, a detailed resin exhaust, plus new decals and a mask set. The moulding looks pretty good to me, recessed panel lines, and so on, so I'm hoping it will build up into a nice model in the end!
