    but this one should solve all the problems about the airbrakes - http://www.sa-transport.co.za/aircraft/dassault-brequet/mirage_f1-cz_saaf201.html

    Looks great, i don;t see anything much to comment about except that the pit looks great and as for the rest of the build, you have to wait for the coat of primer to see if you have any defects to fix. But from the pics you post, it looks nice.

    Looking good so far. Are those resin intakes?

    Yes JF, resin intakes, exhaust and wheel wells.... To be honest, they are not that good, but still better than the stock items Smile

    Time for a little update. After spending the last weeks preparing my new hobby room, I finally managed to do some little painting today. Mirage is primed and now ready for a light sanding to make it smooth. Primer used was Plastikote Grey Primer. I now need to correct some little seams I have on the underside, after which I can give the aircraft it's first colour (once the air compressor arrives!) Comments welcome!

    Straight from the spray can..... it's Plasticote Sandable Primer

    Your polishing pads are here, where you want me to get them for you?

    Looks very good in the photos. If you had very minor defects, just sanding the filler will probably eliminate the problem, it is really great to work with.
