  1. hi thing that stunned me , is how , you could determine the size of all these stuffs , I presume you don't have a drawing with the measures .. do you ?? as everybody said ...... wow !!!!!! Alain
  2. indeed , but you will waste a bit of valuable place especially as you are a prolific modeler Alain
  3. hi there are rumors that Arsenal is working on different stuff, namely various weapons , ejection seat ( they already have the seat on their Mirage V set , but must be reworked ..thought ) and I cross fingers ,the cockpit ...wait and see Alain
  4. hi E Gato is not at his first tempt , I just remember his stunning Mirage 4000 at the big scale of course , an amazing guy !! maybe you will remember this one !!?? https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.largescaleplanes.com%2Farticles%2Farticle.php%3Faid%3D2513&psig=AOvVaw270EDM0T5gjbFmVnhIpWwK&ust=1585644691442000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CA0QjhxqFwoTCNjIj_7owegCFQAAAAAdAAAAABAD
  5. cool!! unusual !! it's a bit a shame that these huge wings hide the fuselage , my opinion ..... but I like the build Alain
  6. hi Nick excellent job , as usual , the rear electronic compartment looks nice , originally well detailed , the few wires you added bring something more sophisticated , well done why did you cast the tailpipe , ..... what's the aim ???, you won't get something better ..so ??? Alain
  7. hi that turns nicely , I very enjoy that build !!!! very inspiring can't wait to see it in situation alongside with the 109 if you allow me one remark !!? you should re engraved the fuselage lines and rivets at the nose / fuselage join .,I agree , it's a bit "risky", especially at this stage of the build .. my humble opinion Alain
  8. hi I don't know what can be done with the Silhouette , ,I only remember the tiny stencils you provided me for the F4 u _5 , they worked rater well Alain
  9. hi Nick nothing is better than painted markings you wasted your time with decals , while you have the good tool ,especially since the roundels are easy to achieve .....sorry mate ........................................................ Alain
  10. hi rebuild the windscreen is not that hard to achieve , you only have to take care of the two lateral parts in order to get a nice " square " front part . if you intend to reduce the top fuselage , you will have to rework the whole cockpit width : IP , floor etc , if you don't you will met issue to close the fuselage ... hope I 've been clear Alain my 406 ... not the ideal , or accurate , but it's works for me in any case , the kit has its flaws here and there , it depend how far you will go in accuracy here is how to rework the top fuselage ( Waroff advises) : remove more or less 1mm in front of the windscreen , and 5mm at the other side
  11. I built some years ago the Azur kit without the needed surgeries , I remember I cut the front windscreen part , glued the two lateral parts in place ( tricky !!) and glued another front part cut into a clear CD box , yes , I agree , a bit too thick... the end justifies the means .. doesn't it Alain
  12. hi the issue is not the windscreen that looks too narrow , but rather the fuselage that is too wide , so it needs some surgeries .. I can advise you to contact " waroff " he is the expert with a big E , he will explains you how to get a correct MS 406 Alain https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.largescaleplanes.com%2Farticles%2Farticle.php%3Faid%3D1879&psig=AOvVaw2VQaqTxbW8PBTMbxX30tVi&ust=1584122224098000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CA0QjhxqFwoTCPiZ2KjBlegCFQAAAAAdAAAAABAg
  13. Kev: I join my voice to tell you a big thank you for all the hours you spent to make this forum as it is : in one word : the greatest of them all !!! best wishes Alain
  14. outstanding !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am speechless Alain
  15. hi WOW !!!! I am a "Mirage lover" and I have to say that yours is very very nice , the riveting even on a mat paint is efficient , (great idea) , and brings a so kind of " old school " to your build , I like !! and I take note . .. congrats for this nice build mate Alain
