  1. Wow Malcom, What an absolute treat to follow your build, and such amazing results, especially the painting. Thank you so much for the test build, and it's very rewarding to see it come together with your skills As for the guys commenting on the other Cheetahs, I'll get to them eventually, just so busy lately at my full time job. Cheers, John
  2. Alain, the Isracast nose diameter is too small for the Italeri kit, especially in height. The nose is a few millimetres too long, and the lacks the curve on top. Luckily this means that there is enough material to sand it to shape. Cheers, John
  3. Thanks Damian, The F-106 is a good looker too Thanks Malcom, it'll be the standard three-piece windshield for the pre-upgrade D Cheers, John
  4. Hi Guys, It's been a while since my last update due to work. Managed to make progress on the nose wheel retraction system. It differs quite a lot from the single seater, due to the shallow well to make room for the second cockpit. This is my second attempt and work in progress, as the first one was a total disaster and got binned... Then I can start cleaning up the well and detail it a bit. Cheers
  5. She's starting to look really nice and sleek, and with the additional pylons and bombs (nicely corrected), even better!
  6. Wow, lots of work on this bird! Nice detail added
  7. Hi Max, Absolute stunner of a build! Especially the fact that it's a vac-form kit, truly amazing work. Did this aircraft ever fly with the overwing JL-100 rocket pods? My knowledge on Lightnings is rather poor, and can remember that they could carry them. Cheers, John
  8. Thanks Nick, the nose wheel well is indeed relocated to the correct position The well is shallower, and the retraction system is different. Still have to make that. Cheers, John
  9. Alain, it'll be a "female" vac-form.
  10. Hi guys, Quite an exciting conversion It's a crazy, but fun project. This has had me scratching my head quite a bit, to come up with solutions. Here's what has been done so far. Still some cleanup to do and a couple of small parts to make, but getting there. Cheers, John
  11. Wow, Malcom! Your work is very neat, well executed and thoroughly researched. The scribing of those few additional panel lines and small strips of plastic card makes a big difference. Cheers
  12. Thanks guys, for the positive feedback Just the cockpit section will open up so many possibilities for many other Mirage III/5 duals Cheers
  13. Paulo, Nice job on the wings and tail fin so far. That CAM nose is odd for sure, and it's mainly due to it being shorter and tapering too much, not leaving enough material to accommodate the squarish section underneath the nose. It should be almost flat at the bottom. Hope the images below helps to explain. You will see the same flatter surface underneath on the nose I made. Keep up the good work Cheers, John
