Today I've sanded the air brakes on and under the wings: too thick! On actual planes, there are same level than the wings surface.
Long work, uneasy due to the size of the aircraft but result looks good for me!
At that scale, the decal for the air brakes will we enough...

The tail of that particular Mirage 5 is from the "late" type so I will have some work to do to represent that.
Evergreen is used to scratch elements and a drop of cyano is put on the top of the tail to fill a little gap due to fixation to the sprue

Next step: the little "louves" on the back of the aircraft. Too big in length (correspond to 1/72 scale); not big enough in volume...
Sanding; then new ones are created in a part of sprue/Evergreen and placed on the aircraft.
