Wazault Mini-Miraj
« on: December 28, 2017, 07:30:27 PM »
For Christmas, my brother offered me several model kits (thanks!) including a Novo Mirage IIIE/O 1/72nd.
I will make a Mini-Mirage from it.
Here is the starting point:

Détails:
- the Novo kit was sent by Unicraft kits in Ukraine, thanks (with a Boulton-Paul resin kit I will show later, and a MiG-3 vacform-like model).
- The Wazault name sounds in French like Oiseau meaning Bird, without military/killing side.

Thanks!

Well, truncation occurred a few minutes ago, and with a tape holding the fin, we can see the aspect:

A lot of PSR remains to perform to join fuselage and wings, this will be less funny/creative... :( ;)

What's happening at France's Studio de Design d’Avions de Tophe today?

PSR, PSR, PSR, PSR and more PSR!

Go, Tophe, go!
