  1. Airfix vintage fantasy ; https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airfix-292-mirage-111c--145452 It was fortunately modified on later issues :` https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airfix-gunze-x-208-dassault-mirage-iiic--1242236
  2. No pictures ! Sorry about that. But more about the story : https://www.fightercontrol.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9272#p48865
  3. Hi, Not meaning to spoil your job, but just pointing out some inaccuracy in the kit. These pictures show exactly what I mean. Most profiles are indeed leading to this. Reading through the links below is worth it concerning the fuselage length. The plug ahead of the air intake is only on the -F5. http://tailspintopics.blogspot.com/2009/10/grumman-panther.html Most profiles show it on the -F2 and have added an extra bit for the -F5. https://mikesresearch.com/2020/06/28/grumman-f9f-panther-jet/ https://forum.flightgear.org/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=22553&start=15
  4. An real one to compare with : https://www.taringa.net/Pucara_58/super-etendard-de-la-armada-argentina-shoutmilitar_228e21
  5. For a neat view, go on Google Earth : 34°55' 25.85'' N 117°53'05.53'' W

  7. Who would have thought Kh-xx missiles could be used against a closest neighbour?
  8. Depending on which mark you want to convert to : https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235097664-airbus-a330-which-other-airbus-is-nearest-for-converting-at-1144-scale/#comment-4163292 However, the whole thread might be useful.
  9. An issue not often commented. The cockpit and canopies area. https://karopka.ru/community/user/12202/?MODEL=226811 http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/153212-ra-5c-vigilante/page/18/&tab=comments#comment-1500745 On the real aircraft, it is pinched above the fuselage junction at the glass level. Meaning it is narrower than the fuselage. Which explains why the bump top on the model is rather squarish to fit the too wide canopy top. See pictures (camouflaged version & front view at the bottom) : Click on any picture to get inside the photo album. You are then able to zoom onto details. http://axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?16391 Another detail. The lastest versions with LERX have straight edges air intakes like the A-5 while older ones have a slopped edge.

  11. Wasn't there a "special" space or compartment dedicated to "refreshments" transportation ?

  14. These will give you an idea of the position of the stabs on landing and the effects of the stabs movements. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHPv0qt03aA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lveluhORNQo Then trying to spot this very instant when the airliner takes off or lands when the stab is almost parrallel to the ground: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uoq-YsdlkaE Enjoy watching...
