Done with the MFD, and it was not a simple as I thought... :doh:

It consists out of 34 pieces glued together, a lot for such a small part. However, it's quite visible and had to be there. Interestingly, it is quite a bit bigger than the original Mirage IIIDZ/D2Z set up. So, when the real aircraft were converted to Cheetahs, a larger cutout was made into the Plexiglass shield to accommodate the MFD. Therefore, the vac-form part for the shield will also have to be adjusted from the IIID2Z one.

Added some strengthening strips for the Plexiglass shield. Also made the joystick, which differs from the front one.

Two more small parts, the air vent, as well as the struts/brace for for the main canopy. I nee two identical parts, so made a mold of them and cast in resin.

Thanks guys ^_^

 

This was quite a challenge, and took much longer than I expected. 

I'm rather tempted to make a Mirage IIIB from this next.

Side note, has there been a plane with a better name than Cheetah?

I think that Pantera is right up there with the cool names B)
