  1. Another Dassault delta. This time Revell's take on the Rafale M. Pretty decent kit overall. Finished with excellent Syhart decals as the kit decals were a bit old.

  2. The latest addition to my Mirage family. This is the AMK Kfir C2.  A lovely kit with excellent detail and fit. Finished in Vallejo acrylics, Gunship grey, dark gull grey and light compass grey in the  markings of ATAC aircraft N401AX.

  3. A kit I've wanted to build for years and I managed to find one reasonably priced on Ebay. Built with a few extras from Eduard; masks, interior etc. and decals from Xtradecal. An excellent kit despite its vintage with mostly great fit.  Finished as EE136 "WS-R" Spirit of Russia of 9Sqn RAF with Hataka red range range acrylics.

    Now to find somewhere to put it...

    Turned out great!

    Did you use the kit decals?

    The kit is indeed complicated, but can definitively be build to a great standard :)

    as you nicely demonstrate!

     

     

    the Spanish Mirage III or planchetas (iron) were all based at Manises/ Valencia by the way!

    🇪🇸 

    Yes, kit decals. Pretty good they are too.

  5. Another Dassault delta, this time Heller's Mirage IVP. No doubt one of the best looking aeroplanes of its era, it's quite a straight forward kit and gows together quite easily. It's finished the markings of L'Armee de L'Air unit 1/91 "Gascogne" based at Mont-de-Marsan in 1995. I used the RAF Dark Sea Grey and Dark Green from Hataka's red range. The decals weren't great, due to age I suspect. Anyway, here it is.

  6. My latest in a series of Dassault deltas. This is Kinetic's Mirage IIIE. Not the easiest kit I've built. By trying to make as many versions available as possible, the kit's engineering is quite complicated, especially in the fuselage/nose/air intake area. Anyway, with some brute force, lots of glue, some filler and a smattering of profanities, it went together. Finished as a Mirage IIIEE of ALA 11 of the Ejercito del Aire, I used Hataka RAF Ocean Grey and RLM 80 Dark green with Vallejo Aluminium undersides.

  7. In 2020 I built more than I bought so I guess a net reduction. A fairly varied selection with my usual flitting between types and scales. Anyway here they are.

  8. Quite an old kit and not particularly easy either. Fit was tricky in places and the decals were a bit of a nightmare. Still, here it is.

  9. A model I've wanted to build for ages. Hasegawa's F-104G finished with Caracal decals as NASA N826NA. Lovely kit to build and decals were excellent too. Note to self, leave the wings off until after decalling.

  10. My latest effort. The kit itself is very good but the decals were a bit tired and reluctant to leave their backing paper so I had to source another set from ebay. The markings are for a Pakistan AF F-104A from the Iliad Design sheet. Nice decals and went on very well.

  11. This was a bit of a challenge and it hasn't turned out great but frankly better than expected. Interesting aeroplane though.

    It used more filler than glue in places and required a lot of weight to keep it in its wheels. Sprayed in Vallejo acrylics and using a Caracal decal sheet, here it is.

  12. Completing my Thunderbirds collection in 1/48, here is the Hobbyboss F-84F Thunderstreak. Not bad at all, typical of modern kits. Finished with the Warbirds decal sheet which was not without a few bits cracking and failing to adhere well. The decal sheet was designed for the Kinetic kit which meant the fit wasn't perfect in places. Anyway, here it is.
