  1. Yours is looking good too Gaz!
  2. AZ model do the prototype, as well as 'what if' production models, in 1/72.
  3. After viewing this thread and the link in the first post yesterday, I today received an email from Aliexpress with a link to these brushes. I guess those tracking cookies are doing their job Here it is if anyone is curious: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005004608508365.html
  4. I forgot to take a before photo, so you'll have to go back to the first post and see it on the sprue, but the front wheel was completely wrong. Much too narrow and the hub was huge. The real thing is sort of chubby and has a small hub: So I glued some extra plastic on it, popped it in the electric drill and filed it into shape. Though actually it's now too wide. A front wheel well was made from takeaway container: and then fitted into place: Forgot to take a before photo again Made a bit of a start on the cockpit:
  5. Looks like #300 from S.Pz.Abt 505 didn't have it
  6. I trimmed the removed part a little and glued it into place higher up and further back: The breaking parachute housing is now in the right place, although it's too big and the engine housing needs moving up and back some more: The parachute housing removed and the two rear fuselage halves joined together. I did this because I think it'll be easier to shape the rear hole symmetrically: The kit has you blank off the engine a short way inside, but on the real thing you can see a long way into the engine. I don't think I'll do much detailing in
  7. The fuselage halves and wing hold themselves together without any glue. Did some sawing: It's not like I've really made the fit any worse. The entire rear will be moved upwards slightly and RWG levels of filling will commence
  8. Huma modell because they do(did?) a wide range of Luft46 stuff which really tickles my fancy. That being said, I've not actually built one of their kits yet, so that could be complete madness.
  9. Ohhh, it must be a Sinclair C5.
  10. I scanned one of the fuselage halves and compared it to drawings of both the Dagger and Mirage: Despite the box art and painting guide showing a Dagger with the correct nose, the actual plastic only has the option for a Mirage nose. Of course I'll enjoy the surgery to both the nose and back bit(I've not researched what that is yet)
  11. I've got this: Google translates the text as: Though I don't understand the first sentence. There's also: which google translates as:
  12. I thought a decal comparison would be interesting: I'm happy to post you the Mirage decals off mine Gaz, though it looks like Pioneer did a better job in terms of the colours lining up properly.
  13. I don't think so, just what's included or I can scratch. I'm not sure what's actually needed at the moment.
  14. This might be useful: http://www.surfacezero.com/g503/showphoto.php?photo=172567
  15. Thank you all It's 'just*' the M.E. being a pain. I should be back to my usual self in a few days. *I say 'just' because it's not something that's going to kill me, nor is it something I'm likely to recover from, it's just the way things are. I hope no one was too concerned and I hope I don't go on about it too much.
