Peter,

It might be worth having a look at the small door and it relation to the upper door on the nose leg. I am just fitting mine to the model now and noticed that the small door is far too low and I am re-positioning it further up the leg.

Eric.

Cheers

Hello all-

 

..I've been slowly chipping away at my IAF bare metal Mirage. Here are the high-speed tanks under way-

Also figuring out the Matra 530 and launcher. Funny, this AAM only has one kill with the IAF...and wasn't carried very long- but there is an awesome picture of 259 with one of these missiles slung on the centerline, so I'll do that

 

More to follow-

 

Cheers

 

Pete

Looking fantastic Pete!  :speak_cool:

 

I'll second that question. What are you doing for your NMF?

 

It looks like foil!

So, Alclad on the ends and foil around the middle? Did the foil get the X22 as well, or just the Alclad? It looks good.

Hi Chuck- and thanks!

Yes, Alclad chrome on the pointy parts, and the whole assembly got clear coated-
