Italeri 1/32 Scale Mirage III BZ Part 3

August 13, 2016 · in Aviation · · 13 · 2.1K

I managed to make the molds for the front(Cracked kit part) and rear main canopy, I used my trusty, home made Vac form machine, it worked like a charm. I then did all the canopy framing with lead strip and masked and painted. I am off to the DRC (Congo) tomorrow for a week, then I will finish it up and post the completed model pic's. I just want to let you all know that you motivate me to build better models, just by looking at the modelling done on this site. Keep up the amazing work guys.

Hope you all like it so far.
