Iteleri Mirage III BZ 1/32 scale Part 2
August 4, 2016 in Aviation
This is how far I managed to get after my last post, needless to say I have been working late into the night having lots of fun with this build. I do a lot of Project Management work in the Congo, so when I get time off I become a hermit in my work room.
The under carriage went together quite well with a few fit problems that I managed to get sorted without much of a fuss, finished the wiring for the actuators that open and close the gear doors, some weathering and that was that.
Needless to say that when I wanted to install the under wing stores, I forgot to drill the locating holes before gluing the wing together…..(S #$@*&#@!** T). So some fancy measuring and marking got the problem sorted.
The other hiccup was the kit front canopy, as you can see in the pictures I have not installed it, why you ask?, It has a crack in the middle that you can see at certain angles, so I am busy making a mold of it and I will Vacuform a new one with the main canopy. All in a day’s work.
I will post the finished model as soon as its done, hope you all approve of it so far..
