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,

No wavering or compromise, Damien, since you're craving for it.  ;)

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 :
