Paul,

 

Welcome to the GB with another great choice of subject.

 

Good to see a Spanish jet in the GB, whose decals are you using?

Hi Wez

I have the Carpena 72-08 sheet just now so that's my main one so far, but I hope to get the Series Espanolas Mirage IIIEE/DE SHEET SE472 soon also in 48th and they do a F1 sheet also in 72nd-48th.

Never heard of the Series Espanolas sheets before, where do you get them from?

What gave it away? :shrug:

 

I was wondering whether there was a UK source or indeed wondering whether I needed to use my best Spanish phrase to get them (which is BTW "Tu cerdo es feo").

Hi Wez

Is That Spanish for where's my beer gone mate.

http://www.aeronautiko.com/product_info.php?products_id=45067  try this for the decals.

I shall order some by the end of the week.

Actually Paul, it means "Your pig is ugly", which probably wouldn't get you what you wanted unless you wanted a punch in the nose!

 

It was one of the phrases I had to translate when I was trying to learn Spanish.

 

My second favourite phrase was "Las reinas no beben cerveza", tickled me to think of members of Spanish royalty not accepting a drink when offered (it means "The Queens do not drink beer"), funny what you remember.

 

Anyway, thanks for the link I'll check them out.

Revell 1/72 Mirage IIIE...    can I give this one a great big :thumbsup:

 

A little bit of context for my point of view.    This kit is an old kit, dating from 1976.  Back in 1976 as a callow youth, I was on a family holiday to Fleetwood.  There was a big model shop that I visited there.  There were lots and lots of things I wanted to buy but didn't have the money.  I thought that I could save my daily allowance and by the end of the holiday I could afford a nice kit.   The kits that caught my eye were the Revell Mirage and the Revell YF-16. 

 

Come the end of the holiday, I could afford one or the other, not both.   I settled on the Mirage. 

 

I entered the model shop only to find that the last Mirage had been sold, but in its place on the shelf was the Matchbox F-4M Phantom.  Do you remember the box art for that?  What young lad could resist it?  So I bought the Phantom.

 

I never did build the Revell Mirage; something I have always regretted.  So now I'm going to put that right, albeit vicariously through your build. :)

 

:popcorn:

Hi Enzo

In 1976 I was 18 in the RAF on my 1st tour in Wiltshire and bombing about on a Honda CB250G5 that I got new the year before in 1977 and i passed my test 3 days later after I got it.

I do remember most of the box tops, been making kits since 1963/64 I know I was making them when I was in Hospital for 8 weeks when I was 6 and I had been making them for a while before that.

I have started the Revell kit a few time but not finished them so for me it will be a 1st and the 2nd GB I would have finished started loads.

I have about 8 of them could be more as I keep finding ones when I move the stash around, got loads of Mirage kits as I have said before.

I shall prod start the GB early next week as things to do this next few days.

Paul
