Mirage F1 AZ 1/32 Scale, Scratch Build. Part 10

September 25, 2019 · in Aviation · · 21 · 2.5K

Well its time for another up date on the F1 project for all you die hard followers out there, it has made for some interesting progress the last few days, here is a basic outline of what I have done, as you all know, I'm sure, everything is scratch built so patience is the key, even though I have lost it on quite a few occasions and had to re make components during this build so far.

  1. Scratch built the leading edge slats and combat flaps.
  2. Scratch built the flaps, this is not shown as they will be installed after painting, I will add pics on the next update.
  3. Started with the panel lines and riveting, this is still in progress and will take a little more time to complete.

Hope you like it so far, its really starting to look the part, I hope you all agree.
If you have any questions, please send me a PM and I will get back to you.

  9. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    On Monday, I was thinking of this one. The lack of electrical power here was starting too fail as Tropical Storm Karen approached . But as soon as I logged in … there it was.
    Beautiful clean work all around Marc. It is looking very much like a piece of art. This is a pure joy to see and a very good show of skill. I told you I will be following this one and here I am.
    Thank you for posting these images.
