Very nice ! Looks like you also modified the landing gear (height), right ?

Exactly! I modified the angle of front landing gear fork.... a recognised problem of the Eduard kit.

Needs more dirt! Otherwise fantastic.

Hi Habu! I'm not agree... looking at the pictures ot the Mirage 259, I never seen a dirt or weatherd aircraft. For example:

Thanks to G.Antìc e G.Kuntz for the images.

 

I chooed the Semi Gloss Mr.Paint... but looking at the pictures, I should have done it chrome!

Beautiful Mirage.... Congratulations.

How much did you cut on the landing gear fork? I bookmarked a tutorial about how to modified Eduard landing gear, but somehow lost it

 

Cheers,

Mario

Well yeah, there it's being presented to brass. Of course it's gonna look clean. I'm just saying if it was during the war, it wouldn't be so clean. At any rate, I'm only teasing. Really dig the build

:yes:

 I remember reading 2.5mm too high.

Quoting Toniosky, more or less 2 mm to high. Pay attention to the main landing gear, you also have to "trim" it to obtain the correct balance.

I did post already but looking again at this top notch model makes me saying it again: it's one of the best Mirage I have seen lately. Just splendid.

 

Cheers,

Michael
