Mirage IIICJ nose strut

Recommended Posts

Hey All!

 

Been messing with the Italeri Mirage IIIC. Building the first one as a bare-metal Israeli jet...Here is the re-built nose strut. I re-did the nose wheel as well; but I'll wait for Harolds, which is much better!

 

A few parts are a little wonky and need to be re-aligned. Not done with this yet but getting there- Wow. The macro lens is brutal!

The fit of the kit parts was not the best-

 

Cheers

 

Pete

WOW!...I think the wheel looks darn good to me. The only advantage mine might have is the logo on it.

Damn! That is mighty impressive Pete! Where did you find the tiny grease nipples? Did you make that whole strut from scratch?

 

Craig

Great work there.

Nice to see that you have filled the spot where Italeri want you to install the lights!

Eric.

Hi Craig- most of the metal parts you see are simply tiny wristwatch parts, save for the nuts, which are model car items. This is just a tear-down and re-do of the kit strut.

 

Eric- been watching your Mirage, and noticed you had filled the spot for the lights as well, which forced me to check my references, so thank you!

 

...and Harold, I did the nose wheel, but was hoping you would work your magic on it, so I'm ready to send you money when they are ready! I'd rather have yours- it is much nicer than my feeble attempt.

 

...and thank you all for the kind words-

Cheers

Pete
