Nice work! I like the weathering, well done! :yes:

 

Only a question (because I don't know the plane):

Why the Poland marks on the upper wings aren't at the same position?

To make it harder to aim at the fuselage in combat and it could also give the impression that the aircraft was turning/banking.

Hello Arkady72,

I just ran across this and it's one of the best models I have ever seen. How did you achieve the variations in color? Did you spray blotches of a lighter color and then apply a darker color on all of the panel lines? Thank you for sharing!

I have this kit, but I've been putting it off because I have not been able to find good photos of the wings.

 

Were the trailing edges that Mirage provide as separate parts, actually separate? I notice a partition line on your model, was there one there?

 

I'm not criticizing, I'm asking because I do not know.

These are landing flaps if I understood the doubts, with a piano hinge at the bottom of the wings.

Make no apologies for bringing this to the top of the stack again... must've missed it last year. Wonderful skills here, never thought of a 'Karas' as a build before, but TBH, I could be tempted.
