Title: Belgian Mirage 5 (PJ 1/72)
Post by: draken35 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.

Both putties are excellent ones I must say...

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

well done so far, dont give up now, putty and sanding is boring but its the ( sad ) part of the hobby.....

Still busy with the PJ kit...
Little work but important one: the Mirages 5 "late" had a little part on the left side of the fuselage that is not present in the box kit...
Made with Evergreen.

Having the need to work on a good Mirage 5 kit, I'm coming back on the PJ one.
Little correction work: putty on the junction between wings and fuselage (both sides)

Well... If I would'nt have to work so intensively on the Mark one Mirage 5 to obtain an "accepatble" result, perheaps I would not be so precise for the PJ.
But the PJ is a beautiful kit that ask for... Well, let say: "respect" ;-)
