Eduard 1/48 Mirage IIIC, Djibouti (weekend edition)


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I have finally completed this build after beginning in late August last year. It's completely OOB.

I have to say that I am not very impressed with the kit, especially the fit, and I haven't "bonded" with it during the build. Nevertheless it was a good learning experience. :)

 

I am generally happy with the outcome, except with how I handled details.

 

One of the mistakes within the kit, as I learned along the way from fellow modelers, is the wrong ejection seat handle which should have been a "D" instead of "B".

I probably made some colour errors as well but I don't know as I am no expert.

 

Painted with Tamiya, Vallejo and Mr.Hobby acrylics.

 

 

Thanks for looking guys!

 

Best,

Nikola

You may not have enjoyed the build the final result is fantastic!  The colours look just right to my eye - well done

Thank you Voltures! Very glad you like how it turned out. 

It definitely wasn't the most enjoyable build but this is modelling, right...

I am starting to appreciate the process more and more. :) Learned some new things. 

 

Best, 

Nikola
