Decided to show a seperate build log for my recent job.
HELLER'S 1/72 Dassault Mirage III / 5 BA
It's part of the "2nd Gen. Jet Fighters" campaign and will be shown there partially as well.
Since it is a very basic and old/well known kit I try to improve something and practise myself in doing that.
The kit offers 3 options with differen parts to use:
III E - Spain
III R - France
5 BA - Belgium
Not yet sure which one I'll go for...
First started with the cockpit/front gear bay part...
The part offers nothing! So I went for some addional parts.
After the bay I'll try to improve the pit a bit as well. There is only a basic seat, a simple joystick and a plain instrument panel. No engravings, no decals.
Now went for he upper side...
Adding a plate glued to the back of the seat to close up the side openings. Than some scratched parts on the rear wall of the pit.
Next will be the seat itself, dials, dashboard, interior etc. ...
