By chance, while browsing the forum, I found this event thread and I really liked this idea. I looked a little in the wardrobe with models and found models of the French Mirage. One from ANSWER, the other from HobbyModel (and one from GMP, but it has an Argentine camouflage). Building a Mirage 2000 model from MSModel (ANSWER) is already guided in this thread by Thomas Stickler in thread #2, so in order not to double I decided to build Mirage from HobbyModel.
3 weeks to end
So hold my beer, sorry baguette and Vive la France!
Model is old, it is from 1995
Model is old and comes from 1995 (my model is reprint sold now by Answer). Classically is designed in 1:33 scale. Model itself is not very detailed, but it is also not easy / simple because:
- poor instruction
- only few drawings
- hand drawing parts
- ant the biggest problems - NO SYMMETRY! In part it is a consequence of hand-drawn elements
- difference between colors on different sheets, but it is a huge problem for me
First i scan all forming elements, and in graphics program I mirroring it to get correct symmetry line
Model build I start from center element (like in instruction). Before forming fuselage element I measure it to get +/- center point in half
Then I build next segments to fuselage end direction
Next I join it together
I think i should be ready before event ending . To next time
