Belgian Mirage 5BA from Heller kit

Recommended Posts

Just a Space holder for now, too busy watchin the Rugby (All BLacks vs Lions, final test, a bit tight, 1/2 time now). I'll be building this pretty much OOB but maybe some Daco decals I have.

Steve,

 

Welcome to the GB, pleased to see the venerable Heller (two words that seem to go together a lot these days), 1/72nd kit.

 

Saw a 5BA at Savigny-lès-Beaune recently, lovely looking jet.  No photo's unfortunately as my phone battery was flat (some muppet had forgotten to charge it :bangin:).

 

No spoilers on the rugby please.

Thanks Wez, I'm sure you know the result by now, possibly as good a result as we deserved, the ABs didn't have one of their better ones & your guys played with great determination, they just got better as the tour went on. Bummer about your phone battery, its a sod when that happens, lots of photos on the net though, enough to confuse me, maybe I'll go with a wrap around scheme yet, I'll have to look to see what my Daco decals can come up with.

Steve,

 

I know the result now thanks, just need to watch the match later. 

 

Regarding your 5BA, the wraparound scheme looks particularly mean!

Not much porgress on the Mirage front the last couple of weeks, least wise as far as modelling goes but a lot of mulling things over. I'm kind of leaning towards doing an Aussie IIIO out of this kit, I think I can anyway, using some Frog decals I have. I picked up a set off ebay as spares for the ones I got from Hannants some time back, the ones from the big H are in better register so hopefully they'll do the job. They are for a 3 squadron machine RAAF.

Sorry all, this is not going to happen, life being especially inconvenient just now & even though there is over a month to go, it isn't looking any better for that time. :( I'm enjoying watching others efforts though, albeit with some frustration.

Never mind Steve, whilst its a shame you won't be taking part you're still welcome to shout encouragement from the side lines.

 

I expect to receive my books this week for my next round of studies beginning in October so I really need to pull my finger out with my two builds!
