  1. Lovely job! Well done! I've got a couple in my stash (one for the Portugal and another for Malta). I hope they come out as well as yours. Miguel
  2. Lovely job indeed!! Well done! Miguel
  3. Thank you very much everyone! From my notes in general they went and adhered well but were a bit translucent (the white came out a bit pinkish). Those of the wingtip pods needed some trimming though and the ones of the main doors were oversized so I had to trim them afterwards. Some touching up with paint was needed though I tried to avoid too much touching up of white because of that pink tinge. Miguel
  4. Thank you very much @exdraken, @Dr. Quack & @RMCS. Miguel
  5. Thank you very much @Harry Callahan, @zebra and @stevehnz (go for it!). Miguel
  6. Smashing job! Very nicely finished. Well done! Miguel
  7. Amazing job! It looks great!! I have this kit in my stash but I doubt I can make it as good as yours! Miguel
  8. Hello everyone! Here is my latest kit, Fox One's 3D-printed 1:144 Dassault Mirage IIIEE. It represents C.11-23 "111-12" of Escuadrón 111 "Dólares", Ala de Caza 11, Ejército del Aire (Spanish Air Force), at Manises AB, Spain in 1973. The kit was built OOB with only the nose probe being replaced with one from stretched sprue since I knocked off the kit's original part and lost it. It was fully painted and varnished with brush. I didn't use the kit's decals as they lacked the yellow of the roundels! All decals came from a Mark I kit being left over from my Swiss Mirage IIIRS. Although Spanish AF Mirage IIIs were very worn especially at the end of their 20-year careers, I kept weathering in mine to a minimum since it represents a machine as it was in 1973, the year following their entry in service. Thank you for looking and all comments are welcome as always Miguel
  9. Lovely job! It looks fantastic. I have this kit in my stash and really hope it comes out as well as yours. Miguel
  10. Thank you @Toryu The front sections of the wingtip pods contain the F-89D's sole weapon, fifty-two "Mighty Mouse" FFAR rockets. Miguel
  11. Thank you very much @reini I had a look at my notes and there were a series of issues, partly due to unclear instructions. My positioning of the cockpit complicated the placing of the underside part a bit but I managed to fix it by sanding down plastic on both parts. The fit of parts wasn't perfect and nearly all joints needed some filling and sanding especially the underside. Some areas needed a little trimming to improve the join. In my notes I conclude that it's a stunning kit let down by poor fit of parts and poor instructions. I hope this helps. Miguel
  12. Thank you very much @Andrés S., @RidgeRunner and @72modeler Mike, I can imagine. It's massive in 1:72 scale!! Miguel
