    Dassault MD-454 Mystere IV A ''Patrouille de France'' (Revell 1:72)

    Post  AdriaN on Sat Apr 24, 2010 1:26 am

    Didnt i swear to myself 'no more 1:72s'? Shocked
    I guess not! I was in the mood of an easy build. I cudnt resist a cheap 6 euro kit in the showcase. It looked easy, small & colourfull so... i got it. Embarassed This type of kit is a 'weekend build'

    This is a Matchbox reissue... so you can expect what a sh** kit this is going to be. Detail is minimal, there is no cockpit tub and no panel! just a seat which looks like a toilet seat. wheels and wheel bays are plain.

    Panels lines? are a 'tahlita' of huge engraved p.lines and raised p.lines the size of a hair & a few normally sized engraved p.lines. Evil or Very Mad

    Well it is possible to build it in a weekend if i used acrylics and straight OOB. But im not that type of modelling geek. But knowing me it will take as log as my Panther (7 months) Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

    Well if it so basic and being as trash as you said it is (by today's standards I think it is) it does not qualify for an O.O.B. project Evil or Very Mad

    I think that only HI-TECH kits qualify for O.O.B. projects Shocked What a Face

    This kit looks worse than the quality of the panther. I think that if you want a rather cheap and very good kit you must go for the italeri 1/48 MB326. If you wish there is also some aftermarket products.

    As an armour affecionado and one who (evidently) like you takes months and months to finish a model...heed my advice. Find a later generation very good model OOTB and add the few deatils you feel are necessary. Then get it finished. That way you will never lose interest and increase greatly your tally of finished models and improve your skills. I do that myself...but still take months and months to finish Evil or Very Mad

    As the saying goes....The best laid plans of mice and men....

    Im a slow builder. I started the cockpit in july or august and its half done Laughing If it was problem free i would have finished it.


    The most exciting part of this build (mystere), is definetly masking and spraying the 3 colours in its wings Very Happy

    DOES ANYONE KNOW THE WING ALIGNMENT? IS IT STRAIGHT OR DIHEDRAL??
    When i dry fit it, it points up a bit.. it will need some tweaking Wink
