Hello guys,

I'm new on this forum and I'm here thanks to Snoopy von Rafstoffen ;)

For the moment, I have any whiff on the bench but I'll show you the last I did.

Rafale CJ - Jordanian AF (Hobbyboss 1/72) :



F-24B Shippu - JASDF (HB 1/72) :






Mirage 2000C - Israel AF (Heller 1/72) :





F/A-20N - US Navy (Revell 1/48) :






I have many other project, but for the moment I only work on a french AF Mirage F-1CR (Italeri 1/48).
I'll make another thread but for my profiles this time :)

Damien

Yes indeed!  Very nice work and quite innovative on the markings as well.  Good to see you here at Beyond The Sprues!

Yes, good to have F/A-20N grab an arresting cable on BTS flight deck and bring you on board.  Being ex-naval air it looks like model of real one to me.  8)
Particularly like how two grays look on F/A-20N with black and yellow above and Navy markings.
Excellent builds all.  :)

Thank you guys  :D

Finsrin, you do not believe say so well. Many people who viewed this F/A-20N asked me if it exists. And what about the jury who noted it for his first and only contest (2nd place, just behind an USAF F-15E 1/32 :P)

My point was it looks like model of a real one >>> though there is no real one.
Looks legitimate  :)

Yes, this is what I understood.
I think there was a mistranslation from me, sorry   :-[

Sometimes I use Google traduction for english translation from french and it's not always accurate ;D

Thanks :)

In that case, my latest build, still in progress, is the Esci/Italeri Mirage F-1CR of French Air Force :

























This is a selection of pics, all of them are visible on ARC ( http://s362974870.onlinehome.us/forums/air/index.php?s=f42a1c847eb85f438c65ac063bdd3a0b&showtopic=261505 ).

Hope you like it ;)

Thank you all for your comments  :D

For the moment, I can't make more painting because I had to order some paint.
Also, the tank is complete but I can't put any pics because I want to keep secret the decoration for the moment ;)

Hi all,

Great advance over the past week: the aircraft was fully painted  :D

I can switch on the final details I managed to list:
- Modification of the 2nd MLG + paint all trains and Pitot (knowing that I finished my bomb Tam aluminum pot and my Gunze H8 is screwed, it only remains fingers crossed to have a pot of Humbrol valid stock)
- Finish painting the seat
- Changes in the main wheels (based on the FM) and paint them (and those of nose gear)
- Finish painting to the rump and the exhaust nozzle
- Paint the inside of the fairing 40 OMERA
- And surely other tinkering I forget

I hesitate to add an access ladder ... What do you think? (I have one of Eduard IIIC)
10 days left to finish ... I think he feels good still painting at its first output  :P

Hi,

Hi all,

The Mirage is finally done  :D

















This is the project of the paint scheme of the aircraft for the 100 years of the BR-11 "Cocotte" that I had designed.
Here, the real aircraft :
