Welcome! Come in and take a seat in the House of Flying Daggers!
This will be a double build featuring Revells Mirage IIIE kit and Italeris Mirage IIIC kit together in Argentinian colours. Not to forget a good amount of AM parts!
The Revell IIIE will be build as a Dagger in service during the Falklands war. Isracasts conversion to the rescue.
The Italeri IIIC will be build as a homeland defender. Argentinia didn't use IIICs? Well, they did! They aquired a batch of CJ from Israel to replace the losses of the Falklands war. These CJs were modernized during IAF service life and got Atar 9C angines and Mk.6 ejection seats. So a Eagle Deseigns Mirage III/5 Atar set will be put into use, as well as parts from Fisher Resins cockpit set.
Lets see what we have in the stash:
The "blue" Revell kit has gone, but I have a "green" Revell at hand. Still waiting for Italeris kit, that should arrive within the next week. Also added some more useful stuff for the project.
Here is what I need to build the Dagger:
Kit, conversion set, some more decals (just in case, and for the other airplane too), reference book, brand new paintset for Falklands war, and a pilot. Of course I need a pilot! It's a flying Dagger!
Started to cut styrene and to dry fit resin parts. This is intended to be a long-term project, to be finished at Easter next year.
So take a seat, grab some popcorn, and take care of the Flying Daggers!
