  1. Morning Gals and Lads:


    I`ve been away from the bench for far too long and wanted to get something done over the Christmas break.

    I finished this model earlier in the year but never got around to post any pictures.

    Apologies for the dust particles and spider webs (if you spot them).

    Single seat was posted a while back and can be seen HERE.


    Mirage 50DCM Pantera, 1/72 from High Planes Models, painted with Akan and Vallejo.

    RBF Eduard, Griffing bombs AMK, Python 3 Trumpeter, ladder and chocks L`arsenal.


    The High Plane Models Mirage IIIE family is extraordinary.

    High quality and accurate resins, quality decals, PE set, white metal bits...

    the best thing is that you find all the parts for the other variants in each box.


    I`ll leave you few pictures here, I hope you like it














    Best Regards

  2. Hi Serkan,


    I had a very similar (if not the same) problem while painting the floats I made for my VVA-14 1/72 a few years ago.

    No matter what I tried it would peel off until I was told to try a painters Primer-Sealer / Stain Killer. The product available Downunder is called B.I.N. (Where you are, it might be called something different). Smells a but it does the trick.

    The colours you got look really good and the whole build has been a joy to follow.
    I Hope you can give one last push and get it across the line.

  3. Thank you Gents for your kind words.

    They are very much appreciated

    @BKirwan  and @Orion, The decals I used came from a generic set of numbers and insignias FACH.

    I`ve got MaxDecals for a couple of helicopters I`ve got in the queue, they are very nice. 

    The colour scheme and detail pictures/drawing came from a great little dossier published by

    "Ediciones Multimodel"

    It really is a gem it does not only give you pictures but also detail drawing and colours used in FS.


    @Pagey you are so right on the Red Arrows look a like, you cracked me up!

    Here comes the first one of this year (hopefully not the last).

    The good old Matchbox tooling of the Twin Otter depicting a Chilean machine operating from Antarctica circa 1985.

    I added the antennas, air scoop, wind screen wipers plus some safety ropes and struts for the skis.


    I leave you a few pictures: 














    I hope you like it.
