Mirage 2000P Peruian airforce 1/48 - finished!!

Recommended Posts

some updates, my photos with the phone are not really world class......

 

hope to provide something better soon!

 

the hud is barely visible here, but quite nice in real life!

20170920_232038_120170920_232139_1

canopy masked, not glued yet, so painting will start soon!

probably going to use the big 1700l tanks as well

they are form the Kinetic offering and can also be found ins some of their MIII kits . te rear fins are only correct for the M2000 though!

tanks also in need of maskinh:

the dark brown is a special case... shade and colour effect depending strongly on the light... sometimes more red, then straight/flat brown

 

 

who knows!

nose and tyres painted, small but important progress ;)

20171012_234743_1

 

and i noted that i did not have any decent Magic IIs prepared yet.....

eduard released some very nice resin ones recenty but I only bought the Magic I for the Mirage IIIs....

 

so I went to the stash and broke open a Revell Rafale kit, probably the best injection molded Magics out there

 

20171012_230620_1

 

20171012_234650_1

ready for paint! - white / off white it is ;)

Very nice indeed and well done with the camo scheme. That is an awful lots of bombs to put on.

doing night shifts to finish this one....

as I am leaving on Friday for holiday finally :)  :)

 

 

20171017_002836_1

I really like those SAMP 250 bombs from l'Arsenal

20171017_002855_1

 

Magic II with shamelessly robbed decals and instructions form the Eduard Magic Is.... :devil:

20171016_224731_1

 

 

and decal work:

20171016_230059_1

the FCM decals are fine and printed fantastically, quite hard to apply tho!

I did not manage to succesfully put on the thin long walk ways, should have cut them before to small pieces I guess......

 

luckily the Italeri ones proved to be more easily to use and also do not look bad at all imho!
