Default My first code3 : Altaya Mirage III 119 tayeset

Hi all,


I introduce to you my first code 3 made by myself... please be indulgent


Since a longtime i drool on models coded 3 by another collector and i wanted to make my own, as a big boy


Donor model from Altaya, the brasilian Mirage III, and i did not make a painting job, no skilled to do that !
Model is not the best, but very cheap for a first try.



Thanks to advices from Jonny, i started to remove brazilian decals and thanks to an US friend i grabbed a decal sheet from Microscale with Israeli decals.


I pasted israeli decals and below the result, but unfortunately, some of them have been dislocated in the water (i guess they were too old). The tail number have been destroyed, so, i took black numbers from JASDF numbering sheet. A pis aller.



The last time i made a kit and applied decals, i was a teenager (30 years ago) and i did them only with water... no softoner.
I tried to use microsol, but my skills are "rookie style"


The result is not fantastic, but happy to try. Enjoy.
Remain to apply varnish...










And the last pic... to show you the result of a dive in the water... Mirage IIIC turned into "Mirag...."

For the beginning its very good result, Cyril!

Do you plan to fix the left air intake before applying varnish? While doing this you could also make air intakes thinner. This Altaya Mirage is known for having very thick intakes when looking from the front.

Thanks guys...


Ladia, i don't think to spend more money for this model... I chose altaya because it was cheap and it was perfect to start my coding experience ! No way to take a Falcon models, even if they are not perfect too


And most importantly, i haven't the skills to do that

Here the wished pic.
Altaya models are the options with or without U/C... you can choose.


the guy to whom I bought the model had chosen to glue U/C down...
