  1. Nice, a natural metal finish looks simple but, can be a real challenge if your into not showing seams and scratches.

    A smart, tight and strong build Allon.

    Two thumbs up.

  2. Very nice, Allon (@allonkira67). There is something about a delta wing that is just cool. I have a Mirage 5 waiting in line, but it may move up after seeing yours.

  3. Absolutely "Out-of-Sight" model since you painted it bare metal, which shows the fine quality of you model. Thanks for posting it. RJW!

  4. Beautiful ... simply beautiful, Allon!

    It's a beautiful aircraft and a beautiful model of it!

  5. Ditto above statements, great work!

  6. Well done and realistic finish. I have always wondered how long the red would last in the sun and weather of the region. The stories of air combat during the 6-day war are fairly impressive.

  7. Bravo Allon! Outstanding rendition for my favorite French bird (yeah, I am French. So what! ?)
    I have this model, I wish to reach the same realism...

  8. That's a wonderful build, Allon.

  9. Beautiful Mirage, that NMF is spot on

  10. Nice! I have this kit but haven't been game to tackle it as yet. Yours looks great Allon.

  11. πŸ™‚ ... Greetings ... πŸ™‚ :
    Always did like the looks and stance of the Mirage 3 and this one is no exception.
    Nice and exceptional work on this build Allon.
    The photography is just as great as the model thanks for sharing the images.

  12. I love a well-done NMF and this is fantastic! Everything on this looks just right to me - love the subtle sheen on the finish, and the markings (IDF and red/white) look great.

  13. Allon, this one of my favorite jets. I have always loved the sleek lines of Dassault deltas. You have done a great capturing it.



  14. Hello Allon,

    Thanks for sharing your creation with us. The IAF has been very successful with this specific type.

    Documents, regarding the "six-day war" showed that this AC was a (very) reliable asset that had a high rate of of turn-around and minimum maintenance to keep it in the air.

    You can still see the type on the IAF museum grounds. Interesting during my visit, was that many birds had made nesting facilities in several aircraft. Nice museum staff, they told me that was a yearly returning happening. From tactical bomber to host for bird nests. Regards, Dirk

  15. Just beautiful, Allon.
    The metal finish is great.
