  1. Well done Alain, Great result
  2. Here are some of others of the same aircraft I took back in 2012, if need be they can complement the ones from Panzerrob for that walkaround.
  3. This is true model art !! Always been in awe with WWI model results
  4. Nice and inspiring Nic.
  5. Another great model from you Koralik, looking superb
  6. I have that one as well Alain, but when I see the catapult starting so close to the JBD, I don't trust any of it's dimension So far 36x14 feet seems pretty good and that would translate to343x133mm in 1/32 and 228x89mm in 1/48 Since the 3 main JBD are made of 6 sections, 36 ft makes sense and induce 6 feet per section. JBD4 is 4 sections, thus 24 feet wide I think I'll stick to that for now
  7. Thanks for the input gents, As I said in the first post, I work on the USS Nimitz, with Tomcat on boards. After that I won't be too pedantic about exact measurements. It's just that the conflicting data I have for now are not 10 cm off for rather 6 feet off. So I'm trying to get an order of size closer to 30 feet or 36 feet. if It's 30.22 or 35.48 I don't really mind It's the 6 feet I mind Here are some interesting bits I found: So 14x36 feet and they raise to 50° The distance from the catapult for the 4 JBD is also very interesting altho
  8. lol, yes sorry JBD, Jet Blast Deflector
  9. I am looking for more information about JDB sizes. I'm currently doing a diorama for a tomcat and I have different data for the JDB sizes. It seems catapult 1 and 2 are identical in size although placed at a different distance from the catapult shuttle. Catapult 3 and 4 are different but I'm looking for their dimensions as well. Current size I used are 30.5 feet long but I feel they are too narrow. I found data for Mk7s to be 36 feet long. Which looks much better. Not sure USS nimitz has the Mk7. So i'm fishing for some more information should there is someone here with more dat
  10. what? no aftermarket?
  11. Nice project going on again Mistral I'll be following along your progress. That dual seat mirage is tempting ...
  12. Looks like they are coming https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ED632168?result-token=LfRVB
  13. Cory, I think we have all been through that point. When you look for stuff original you probably venture into converting a model that wasn't done before and you'll eventually end up without decals. Same for the larger scale where aftermarkets are sparse because not commercially viable. 1/18 might be even worse. Been there done that, got the tee shirt - as many others here on this board Here's a short article on explaining the principles of how I address these issues on my own models: https://reddogsmodels.wordpress.com/2021/03/09/custom-decals-masks/
