1/32 Mirage F.1C

Posted (edited)

Hi guys,

 

Very strange too almost never be at home, and now with the current situation and a lockdown enforced, I have to keep myself busy. A friend of mine wanted to test different printing styles on his home 3D printer a while ago, and asked me for a challenge. So I said a 1/32 Mirage F.1C would be nice, thinking he would not be able to pull it off...lol. Well, he delivered a 1/32 F.1C as best a basic 3D printer can. Oh boy, it's rough, it'll make a blind man cry, but I like a challenge. Even more when it's an aircraft I have a great passion for. A ton of filler and layers of primer later, Started scribing panel lines, and she's starting to look the part :)

Hey there! 

It's been a while, since I have any updates for you guys, regarding my 32 scaler Bucc Kit. I haven't done much, since things got bmvery busy for me, making scratch built models for customers. I have 4 on my workbench at the moment. Here in South Africa, we are also on a 3 week lockdown, and I hope to get these projects nearer to completion soon, so that I can get back into the Bucc.

I will deffs keep you updated, however, there is a TONNE of stuff to do! 

 

See ya real soon

Jon

Very nice. Always wanted one, strange that there is no IM kit of this aircraft. Here in the US these aircraft are getting new life as contract aggressor aircraft. Can't wait to see what kind of wild camo schemes might come forward.

Thanks for the kind words, guys :)

The F.1C is quite an iconic fighter, and I really would like to capture this as best I can.

Nice one John. Are you planning to produce a kit ?

Thanks Nick, I have been contemplating it, and it would be quite an amount of time and resources required for such an ambitious venture. My biggest concern is interest in a multimedia kit like this. I see a couple of guys would like a 1/32 F.1C :), but it certainly won't be injection molded. I do have the time now to work on it, considering the lockdown. Worst case scenario, it will be a once-off.

I'll post some more pics as I progress.

 

Cheers,

John

A consortium of Italian modellers released a multi media 1/32 Fiat G. 91 a couple of years ago, think the price was about €180, don't think they had a problem selling them. 

 

If a kit were to include SAAF, French, and Spanish decals, where there is a healthy modelling community, it would certainly help potential sales.
