MWP Project: Mirage IIIC "Ça va sans dire!"

Recommended Posts

Hi to all
I present my new MWP (metal work panels) project based on the Italeri Mirage IIIc 1/32 scale model kit:IMG_2374.gif

 


I chose the version (optional) ECT02 / 02 Côte D'or Dijon-Longvic 1970 (NMF finished)

 

Aftermarkets:
Eduard BigEd: part 1 & 2
Eduard Brassin: Wheels resin parts
Scale Aircraft Conversions: landing gears
Master (Air): Pitot tube & adapter for Italeri kit
Berna Decals: for version ECT02 / 02

 

In this first session of work:

I assembled, detailed and modified the cockpit:

note the variation of the colors ( different combustion temperature)
