  9. Greetings :
    Nice work on that Mirage, nice work on the photography.

  10. Ricardo,
    Excellent looking model.

  11. A very nice looking Dagger. Always loved the look of this Mirage derivative. The Italeri version of this type has the markings of the Israeli Jet ace of aces Giora Epstein. He achieved some of his kills whilst flying the Dagger/Nesher.

  12. I never thought about doing a “re-do” – great idea! Very nicely done. I enjoy subjects in other-than-nationality-of-the-subject livery. Nice weathering as well.

  13. Very realistic photos, a nice build.

  14. Hello Ricardo,

    Excellent model, with lots of history.
    I did read the book “Wings over the Malvinas” from Santiago Rivas.
    That gave me the right information on operations during the conflict.
