  1. Hi guys, It's been going crazy my side, but managed to get some more molds done and successful first castings for the 1/32 Mirage F.1C/CZ. Cheers
  2. I see Rafju beat me to posting an update... The pictures shows less parts, because only one master is made for certain parts that are to be duplicated Cheers, John
  3. Thanks Marcel Apologies for not posting much lately, as studies and exams have once again restricted modelling time. There was a couple of panel lines out of place that I spotted while test fitting the rudder linkage and installing antennas on the front and rear edges of the the tail fin. The lines were filled and correct ones scribed. It has just been sanded down, and will be refined once more. Molds for the main landing gear assembly were made for mirrored parts, as well as some vents on the airframe. The wing tip launcher for the Matra 550 Magic is also work in progress. Cheers, John
  4. Hi Alain, Not to worry about the strength. As you might recall with the Mirage IIID2Z, the gear will be cast with a metal rod inserted. Not so much hahaha Some more work on the nose gear. Sometimes one can lose track of a project, and just to review on where progress is at, a picture of the parts that I could manage to fit on an A3 cutting mat. Cheers
  5. Hi Guys, What a pain in the butt did the nose gear leg turn out to be. Cheers
  6. Good work, Nick. It's quite a lot of fun to combine and fiddle and match parts from different kits. Congratulations on becoming a grandfather! Cheers, John
  7. Thanks guys Nick, you are right, that is the norm. I have tried to fill and make those darn covers and failed miserably. Don't want to buy the Kitty Hawk kit just for RLF-4 cones either. I don't think that this is a deal breaker though. The time has come to make the parts that are probably the most challenging on an F.1, the Main landing gear! ... The complexity of it is not too bad once broken up into individual components. The main strut of the leg is the key, and tricky to find the correct angles outward and forward. A mold will be made of it to assure the same on both sides. After that, most of the other parts can be used for either, with minor little mirrored details added. Cheers, and thanks for looking.
  8. Hi Guys, MATRA RLF-4 rocket pod master in progress. Removed the tail cone and cut out the lower portion of a Type 155 rocket pod. A disc from plastic card attached for material lost during cutting, in which the corresponding holes were also drilled. Inner blast pipe shaped from a piece of scrap resin. The rough work looks the part, and will now be refined. Thanks to all for popping in to see the progress Cheers, John
  9. Hi Guys, I haven't posted in a while, due to studying and writing exams. Some work did get done in between, like successfully removing the starboard wing combat flaps, slats, flaps and aileron for their deployed positions. Also made some vents for underneath the belly. The standard ventral fins as well as the SAAF mod with CHAFF/Flare dispensers. The two underwing CLB30 and Alkan 915/916 pylons (still working on getting the rough shape right) are currently in progress. Cheers, John
  10. Hi Nick, One has to say that the F-1AZ is quite a good looker. As a separate kit, it might even be a good idea to cover the Libyan F-1AD. Cheers, John
  11. Hi Alain, It should not be a problem to cast the fairings as part of the wing. The control horn and it's push rod would be best as separate parts. Copies have been made of the fairings. Cheers, John
  12. Hi guys, The aileron control horn and push rod (Push rod is still to long) are pretty much done. Again, molds will be made to ensure that they will be the same shape size. Cheers, John
  13. Hi Nick, That would be awesome. However, the AZ has a couple of unique features, and would have to be considered as a completely separate product. Besides the nose, the following are also different: Cockpit bulkhead, instrument panel, instrument cowl. Not to mention the weapons loadout Cheers, John
  14. Hi guys, Mold has set, and will cast copies today. Also made the aileron control fairing, and will make a mold of it as well. Cheers, John
