G'day, I am building the ancient revell Mirage with the aim of using as little of the kit parts as possible! The only parts that I will be using (at this stage) will be the wings, fuselage, clear parts and some of the drop tanks. Where no aftermarket part exists for it, I will be scratch building the part and casting it in resin. I will be making multiple copies and offering them for sale if there is enough interest. So lets start. As the nose cone needed re-scribing I decided that I would master it and cast it. This is the end result and I have run a wash through the panel lines to show them up a bit. It adds approx. 10 grams to the front of the model. The kit part was `sharpened' up a bit, panel lines and access panels added and a hole drilled down the end of the nose. As I dont have the same methods as Aires etc, there are a few pinholes but once primed will fill in fine. wings after a rescribing session. (sorry about the poor pic, battery was running out on the camera) Stay tuned, lots more coming! Eric.
