    Today's builds... A Mirage IIIE from the early 70ies with DACT marking (should also have some stripes on the wings) and a Mirage IIIR from the sixties.

    These models looks so true and straight. The display stands you have made would be a great addition to out "Downloads " area. (Hint, Hint!) :)

    I know! I need to improve the part that goes inside the exhaust and the way it attaches to the rest of the stand. Though I like what Jan Kytop did with it.

    That stand could be used many ways. If you take a piece of Tig welding wire, .030" let's say, and tire one end off to a very strong stationary post, and yank steadily on the other, it will harden the wire, and it will become very stiff, making it able to support many many things. Try it, you will see how to make soft pliable wire into very stiff wire. :)

    Mirage IIIC, EC 3/10 Vexin

    This one is a colour scheme I wanted to do almost from the beginning.

    It's a Mirage IIIC in the colours of EC 3/10 "Vexin" based in Djibouti. They replaced the F-100D of EC 4/11 "Jura" and stayed there from 1978 to 1988 when the unit re-equiped with Mirage F1Cs (and became EC 4/30 "Vexin", later EC 4/33).

    Have you ever considered doing any models by Stalhart? They are incredible, and actually FREE! These are commercial grade models. I think you could really knock them out of the Ballpark! :)

    I've considered doing Stahlhart's F-18 Hornet despite my dislike of petals. :)

    (no more than 4 of 6 petals and they must be tiny! same reason I haven't built any of Ojimak's Phantoms)

    If you do one the F18, and give the the base diameter and length and profile curve, I will make the conical rings for you. :)

    SameeBD's PM reminded me I had made a few recolors (boring blue or gray camo) and a 2-seat conversion of Chaiwat's Mirage F1C.

    Here is a F1C of EC 2/30 Normandie-Niemen specially painted in 1991 for a soviet MiG-29 visit. 4 Mirage were painted in these colors. I built it yesterday.

    Built today, one of the few Mirage F1B remaining in the french Air Force, EC 2/33 Savoie in 2013. Apart from the tail cone and air intakes, the rest of the fuselage is brand new. I still have to add the antennas on the fin and the ventral fuel tank.

    Thanks. :)

    Maybe I should make some actual camouflaged planes. Whether they're french Air Force CR or CT (both require designing a fairing that goes under the fuselage) or south-african (AZ requires a new nose, CZ doesn't), jordanian, lybian, iraqi or iranian...

    IAI Kfir C7 in 1:200

    Here is a little Kfir C7. I'm not satisfied with the brown (too dark) and I'll probably change it before release.

    I corrected the brown for the F-21A.
