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

Recommended Posts

Hi to all

In this update I made a structural change to the model concerning the intakes opened

I coated the fuselage with metal wire and colored the ventral panel with chrome-yellow.

I fixed the Pitot tube of the Air Master with its adapter.

I have highlighted all the details of the tail and the fuselage as well as the metal covered sub-wing tanks with advanced coating technique (MWP)

I wrote the  new rivets on the model with the 1/32 scale riveting machine and this is the final result:

hi

very nice job , like it very much , I never dared the bare metal foils ,too "tricky" ( IMHO )..on your last picture , I see you  didn't glue the main parts , belly , and " rump "  yet , I know that these parts are rather "tricky" ( again ...) to take their place . if you are lucky enough , you wont need putty .... fingers crossed

Hi Alain
I thank you for the comment.
I have not yet glued the main parts because first I have to proceed with the coating of the wings (which must be inserted before closing the model).
I can assure you that I will certainly have problems having already performed tests.
I hope that everything can be resolved for the best.

I only hope you won't waste your job , especially at the rear part  , what's why , if I had to do , I would coated it afterward , once everything is glued , sanded flush etc......

Hi,

 

this build is fantastic with the metal foil giving such an realistic appearance.:clap2:

 

I just have one question. Why are you opening the auxiliary intakes? Are you planning to pose the model in flight?

Hi Nick,

Thank you for your comment. I've appreciated very much.

The reason why teh auxiliary intakes are open is because the model will be placed in a hangar during an inspection and maintenace process

Cheers

Ok that makes sense. The intakes are spring loaded in the closed position and only open under full power and low speed. The whole assembly (indicated by the outside panel lines)is normally removed during servicing . I will send you a photo tomorrow.
