Hi,

In the letter box this morning with a Kinetic Kfir C1/F-21 :



Will be use for the landing gear if no other option.
I tried to position the windows





If good, I cut off

Hi all,

Windows are open and half-fuselage primed. Remains sanding with 1000 grit with water and it will be good.

Damien

Thank you for your updates on this fantastic project, Damien!

I find them both a lot of fun and very educational as well.

Hi,

Work of the day abstract in 3 pics :

Before :



During :



After :



In detail :
Sanding with different grit with water : 120, 400, 600, 1000, 1200, 1400 and 1600. After, I spent a coat of Klir/Future on each side.

If you have question, don't hesitate :)

Hi Damien,

What a damn good job !  ;)

Thanks Phil  ;)

Nope. It's to represent windows. It will be clearer later in the build  ;) (Can't explain it in english for the moment, sorry  :-[ )

Hi all,

Some news for the Shack. Thank to a friend, I have an upgrade set for the Sanger kit :











Some works but it's still far better than original parts...

As I'm in England right now, I work on some preparation for 2 new project :
First, I'm thinking about some modification for a SF Rafale for a group build with a french friend on Master194.
Secondly, I start some CAD design for the second project, based on an Airfix kit.

Let see if someone will find it ^^



A clue to help you : It's a ZEro Length Launch platform  ;)

From the friend with whom I work on this project.

He did a major overhaul of original kit part and molding them to do resin copy. You can see his work here :

(too many photos to put here)

Don't try to translate everything, it doesn't bring anything more than the pictures because there was a lot of private joke ;)

Hi guys,

Some progress on the CAD design for the TSR.2MS project :











When finished, I'll do plan and print it in 72nd scale for a full scratch.
I still have to buy the Armada hobby resin kit for the MAZ-537 tractor (approx 45 shipping incl.) :



Maybe late June or July  ;)

Hi all,

I don't no where to put it so I give you the link here.
I was talking with Madhatter some days ago and I said him I participated to the paint of a Mirage 2000-5F from 5/330 Squadron of French Air Force. During this WE, we put a Go Pro in the shelter to make a Time-lapse but without any idea of the result... Yesterday, the video was done and it's not so bad  :D

Here the link :

Hope you like it  :)

oooooooooh - I like that! Quite possibly....no no...it is the best scheme I've seen on a Mirage to date! Now all we have to do is wait for the decal option to come out and I might actually buy a Mirage solely for that scheme
It's quite amazing to see how quickly a scheme like that is achieved on a real plane.  Heck, it took me a week just to do a 1/72 SU33!
Thanks for posting that Damien!

Thanks for your comments Simon.
For your Su-33, I suppose that you weren't 10 on it for masking and painting, right ?  ;D

New project with an old "in progress" build.
Few days ago, I discover the new MQ-8 for the US Navy : the C version based on Bell 407 :



And I had in my stock a similar chopper, the AS-350 Ecureuil (Squirrel) so I started the conversion. And the result :







It will have a Flir on the nose, like MQ-8C but I still have to scratch it. If you have any idea for other additions, I'll consider it  ;)

Don't know for the country... Maybe a french one, from CEAM squadron if French Air Force or a French Navy... Any suggestions are welcome.

Regards
Damien
