Sorry not to have responded earlier  :-[
It's a pleasure for me to make a step-by-step  ;)

No more progress on the Mirage, but some on 2 old project. First, a C160R Transall of French Air Force and next, a FW Flitzer of French AF too  8)

The Transall :

The Flitzer :

















Hope you like it  :)

Wow that made a truly memorable diorama, Damien! You took this project in a direction I wasn't expecting and it really finished up nicely!

Thanks Brian, glad to see that you like it  :D
It's my first diorama and it's easier than what I believed. It took me only one afternoon for doing it (with some advice from a friend by phone call).

Since my last post, there is some progress. I will put pictures (better quality) once everything is finished before this WE  :) (this model will be in an exposition in Lorient, France this WE)

Excellent 1st dio on the Flitzer, Dams! 8)

The nose & belly are a little bit clean, & a bit short on scrapes & dents, for even a gentle belly landing but that's the only thing I can find which might be improved.

Great work!

My back story is:
Was "beamed up" by aliens.  After being studied, they deposited it on Mars.  Been there around five decades.

Great build-weathering-scene combination  :)

Hi all,

Sorry, no news since December but the Kfir is almost finished :











I have an other long time project in parallel : an Avro Shackleton AEW.2 from Sanger (1/48th) :

The Shack' is a real challenge. Despite it's 1/48th, its size is comparable to the 1/72th Transall (a little bigger anyway)  ;)

Brian, no prizes for the Kfir in the contest. But my friends who saw it (and who are great modellers) pointed out to me that I made many progress in a few month. The best prize for me  :)

Some progress on the Shack' :









Next goal : close the fuselage for May :icon_ninja:
