  2. Hi to all this is the third update and in this thread I will tell you how I managed to finally close the Mirage IIIc fuselage Dassault Aviation Mirage IIIc version: SPA 94 "Mort qui fauche" ECT02/ 002 côte d'or Dijon-Longvic 1970 ( Final look) Image published exclusively for referential, technical and historical purposes Before closing the fuselage I covered the wings to correct the air brakes compartment which is closed and not opened as proposed by the Italeri kit MWP (Metal Work Panels) technique step by step: creation of an aluminum panel ready to be inserted in the covering area: Work gallery: After having grouted, sanded and polished the critical parts of the model (radome and afterburner compartment ) I have definitely closed the fuselage: the mockup: Application of optional decals (Berna decals) First look: and ....................................final (corrected) look: Dassault Aviation Mirage IIIc SPA 94 "Mort qui fauche" ECT02/ 002 Côte d'or Dijon-Longvic 1970 & SNECMA ATAR 9c For more info & pics :http://www.adventurephotomodels.com That is all for the moment. Thanks for the attention George
  3. Hi Craig, Thank you for appreciation. At the moment I used only a light pass with steel wool "00 00" to get the details highlited. For weathering with this technique(MWP) I usually use the procedure that I show you below only for illustrative purposes: B-25 J Kit HK 1/32 scale model "Lady Lil" and weathering + stress effect: Nakajima Ki 44 Type II "Tojo" Hasegawa kit 1/48 scale model George
  4. Hi Nick, Thank you for your comment. I've appreciated very much. The reason why teh auxiliary intakes are open is because the model will be placed in a hangar during an inspection and maintenace process Cheers George
  5. I totally agree. I had no doubts. Thanks for the advice George
  6. Hi Alain I thank you for the comment. I have not yet glued the main parts because first I have to proceed with the coating of the wings (which must be inserted before closing the model). I can assure you that I will certainly have problems having already performed tests. I hope that everything can be resolved for the best. George
  7. Hi to all In this update I made a structural change to the model concerning the intakes opened I coated the fuselage with metal wire and colored the ventral panel with chrome-yellow. I fixed the Pitot tube of the Air Master with its adapter. I have highlighted all the details of the tail and the fuselage as well as the metal covered sub-wing tanks with advanced coating technique (MWP) I wrote the new rivets on the model with the 1/32 scale riveting machine and this is the final result: and now, the final result of this session: for more info & pics:http://www.adventurephotomodels.com Thanks for the attention George

  11. Hi to all I present my new MWP (metal work panels) project based on the Italeri Mirage IIIc 1/32 scale model kit: I chose the version (optional) ECT02 / 02 Côte D'or Dijon-Longvic 1970 (NMF finished) Aftermarkets: Eduard BigEd: part 1 & 2 Eduard Brassin: Wheels resin parts Scale Aircraft Conversions: landing gears Master (Air): Pitot tube & adapter for Italeri kit Berna Decals: for version ECT02 / 02 In this first session of work: I assembled, detailed and modified the cockpit: Test to fit on the mock up (1) : test :ok - please note the light wash (mix oil & resin) over the aircraft surface: preliminary step of the MWP procedure for reveal all the informations on the panels.

  12. Hi guys I thank everyone very much for the interest and appreciation for this work. George
  13. Hi to all I finished the MWP (Metal Work Panels) Canadair CF-104 Starfighter project with an aluminum coating . The kit used is that of Italeri with the addition of some optional accessories and many scratch-built parts. The project envisaged the representation of the model belonging to the 417 SQN. Cold Lake Alberta year 1970 under renovation / reconditioning and rearmament with the Vulcan M61 / A cannon removed first. For the technical part, I found, among others, different interesting photographic material and to which I was inspired, directly on : http://www.canadianstarfightermuseum.ca/ For the contextualization, I modified the product of the Noy Pines 3D Display expanding the three high-resolution images to reach an optimal result according to the actual dimensions of the model. These are the images of the finished work: Noy Pnes 3D Display UHD 1:32 (modified) for more info & pics:http://www.adventurephotomodels.com Thank you for your interest and for watching at this work George
