Seat is done; plus some little work on the lateral consoles (quasi inexistant on the kit...)

First, the decal of the instrument panel is cut in two parts to be more easily placed on the plastic part. "Flash" must be removed yet.

...But a big problem is coming: the inside parts of the cockpit... Too long, will give difficulties to place the logement of the front wheel... And the pilot stick will just go... in the instrument panel! Not sure I can give it a better position...

I have to think before to act...

Thank you.

Fitting of the exhaust and the inside of the cockpit in the half fuselages is cataclysmic.
I've had to cut the seat to fit with the canopy; just kept the back.
Canopy don't fit with the fuselage.
Interior bay of the forward wheel is not horizontal and misplaced due to the floor of the cockpit
Fuselage don't fit with the wings.
Too much is too much.
I've asked to IPMS-Belgium permission to stop that build...

Mark one realised nice little kit at 1/144, like the brewster Buffalo. But their Mirage is too bad.

After two good Belgian beers, I've tried to continue a little bit that bloody kit...
Lot, lot, lot of work remain to do... And the result will not be excellent anyway.
