Hello,
I had once realized for a friend the nose recce "Tzniut for the Mirage IIIc.
It is time for me to take advantage of the work done by also making this unusual version of the Israeli Mirage.

I copied the AML kit and adapted for 1/32 scale.
Use also information from IPMS Israel magazine "Kne Mida"
 
Some pictures of the evolution of the project.
The angle for the radome of the Italeri kit is too inclined, a slight correction is necessary.

After making the master, a resin copy is cast.
She was not top but improved since.

We can see the camera and the quilted lining inside of the nose, the necessary documentation comes from the book on the 101 sqn Isradecals publication.

This Mirage is equipped, like the "Nesher" and "Kfir" of the seat Mk6, not the Mk4.
I tried to make the seat from a seat of F-4 from Avionix.
Here he has nothing of the F-4.

I also need the ventral fuel tank from Mirage IIIE Italeri.
I copied in resin to adapt on the IIIc.

We must add an antenna on the tail, it is the same antenna as the first Kfir and F-21.

"Tzniut" is equipped with the Atar 9c, the Isracast resin part is perfect.

The model is well advanced, almost ready for painting.
But other steps are coming soon.

Yeah, Talk about spoiling the lines of one of the most beautiful airplanes ever produced! Still, if it succeeds in its mission, perhaps "Beauty is as beauty does."

The AD Graphics/ IAF aircraft series, are wonderful books; I think I have most of them too.
