I really enjoyed building this one. The hasegawa kit is very easy to built and the Werner's wing conversion is great. I had to correct a few flaws and replace some parts (broken or badly moulded) but nothing very difficult. The decals are one of the best i know, even too much (they are very thin and i had some issue on the fuselage letters on one side, where the decal has folded under itself, and i cannot manage to correct this issue. Fortunately, they are so thin that it is not even noticeable, except if you really watch it very close).

Stunning!

 

Absolutely beautiful build! I like the attention to details visible in the cockpit and canopy area. Finish is immaculate. Thanks for showing, mate!

Very nice! Like the subtle streaking at the wings and the exhaust soot along the fuselage!

 

 

Still have the conversion in the stash to build it one happy day...

BTW, what were the problems that you faced with your conversion set?

 

Mine has a paper-thin wall of the lower nose. Guess I can fix this with some superglue and filler from inside. Any other problems to watch for?

Thank you Alain ! I'm still amazed by your Aussie Mirage III !

I dont remember of such a problem with my conversion. But there was a few others. It was quite painful to clean up the intake and the exhaust places. No exhaust provided, so as the ones provided in the hasegawa kit were DB-605 ones and quite plain, i've bought a quickboost exhaust set for a Stuka, and made the thin metal covers (not very visible on the pictures) with lead foil.

You have to move forward the little air vent on the right side of the fuse as it is not at the right place (must match the vent inside), but this issue is from the kit, not the conversion.

I had to thin and sand carrefully the junction between the aft of the nose piece (the cowls) to make it fit with the kit.

 

I made a little mistake installing the cockpit, but it's my fault : i've cutted the aft of the upper cockpit place (the 2 triangles in the corner, just aside of the belts attachement). I then had to remake them with plasticard.

 

I also had a little issue to fit the rudder. I dont remember very well, but i had to struggle to make the height of the tail and the rudder match correctly.

 

Except those little things, this conversion was quite easy with very few traps. You just have to dry fit many times before gluing.
