Mirage 3C based in Dijbouti

Recommended Posts

hi guys,

 

From the Hobby Boss 1/48 kit, simple and with some fit issues but nothing problematic.

Weathering was a discovery journey to get as close as possible to a picture from that Mirage based in Djibouti.
As seen on the picture this specific Mirage got a new nose giving a nice contrast to the rest of the weathered  airframe.

The weathering techniques used come from JM Villalba (you really need his DVDs) and Mario Eens.

 

So hope you like it.
Jan.

The real Mirage.

Wow!  I have the same kit in my stash, did you have any problems with it?  I seem to have read somewhere the landing gear needed to be extended?
