Swiss Delta. Mirage IIIS.


Recommended Posts

That is spectacular, something very special indeed.  Those first two photos could actually be a real aircraft - no better compliment available.

 

Stunning work buddy, just stunning.

Fantastic modelwork!

 

AND excellent bare-metal job.

 

Besides a Mirage model is in itself high art ;)

Despite your struggles you've got the natural metal look spot on. The Mirage III is a very elegant jet.

If you managed to photograph it against a typical Swiss mountain backdrop you couldn't tell it wasn't real.

Hi,

unbelievable that’s 1/72 scale. You have done a perfect job I would say . A superb Alclad finish! The 2. picture from above looks absolute perfect from this view. Perfect photography that I like so much. 
Thx for sharing. 
 

Cheers Andy

Hi David,

 

I was already hooked by your WIP and your rollout continues to amaze. Hardly have I ever seen such a nice photography of a kit, it looks so "real". I especially like the photo during the sunset, very atmospheric.

 

There is only one word: SPECTECULAR :worthy:

 

Cheers

Markus

Caught the atmosphere of the real thing beautifully.

 

I remember reading an Airforces Monthly mag in the 1980's, lead article was about the Swiss AF 'Defending Neutrality' and the jets looked just like that.

 

Astounding work.

Man, what a stunning model. I am Swiss and always loved the Swiss Airforce Mirages - you did it more than justice. congrats and hat off. I do have the kit too and will be happy if mine turns out only half as good as yours. Cheers, Michael

 

PS: for those interested - here a video of the real deal (IIIRS recce) flying in the Swiss alps:
