Belgian Mirage 5 (PJ 1/72)
« on: February 13, 2019, 06:29:04 PM »
In parallel with the 1/48 Mirage 5 from Wingman, I'm beginning another one but at 1/72 scale from PJ.
New tooling kit with all the interpanels more discrete...

I've assembled the wings and the fuselage. As I will use the "late" tail, I just had to use a little bit of Tamiya White Putty on the back of the fuselage.
Annoying was the fact that a bubble in the resin damaged the tail of her forward extremity. I've decide tu use the forward part of the "early" tail that I've cut at the good dimension. Will glue that very soon...

The resin tail was slightly curved so I put it in hot water to correct it. Then I glued the part in place and finally the little part from the early tail...
Putty (Miliput I think) will be needed now...

Thank you.
Putty was needed; I've used Magic plastic putty and Vallejo putty. Little antennas in photoetch are in place.

After some control, I have to admit that putty was still needed...
