Thanks guys! :)

 

Work continued with the installation of the landing gear and the addition of the two remaining air scoops near the big wild boar.:

An additional decal (provided) will be placed over the lower one to blend it in with the blue artwork.

 

The pylons for the 1700 Ltr. tanks of the new Revell/Italeri kit had to be adapted to the shape of this old model's wings by inserting  some plastic strips, cut to shape. Also, the mounting tabs had to be lengthened:

I forgot to take a picture before spraying, so the modifications are hard to see on this picture. ;)

 

Here they are installed on the wing:

The lower air scoop also got its decal. However, some touching up was needed.

The black edge was added with a sharpie after the picture was taken.

 

The Master turned metal pitot tube was glued to the nose and blended in.

A bit of touching up with the airbrush was needed:

Then the final bits were added and the black area was give a coat of satin varnish with the airbrush.

And that means... that the Mirage is finshed in time !!! :yahoo:

 

Pictures in the next post. :)

It was a pleasure joining this group build and building this old Revell kit.

 

Until the next time,

 

Cheers,

 

Peter
