Mr Surfacer 500 is used for the fuel tanks. For what concerns the BR nose, things look good enough now. Next phase will be to delimit the windows with masking tape and then to airbrush black paint

Thank you!

Yesterday I've airbrushed a matt black base on the windows of the recce nose. Today was too hot here in Belgium to work with airbrush...

Not really an appealing photo but...  :-green
After the matt black as base color, I've airbrushed glossy blaxk (Tamiya X1)

I have just wait to see this step and I am so impressed with precision!!! Free hand or some kind of template for cut?

Thank you my friend. Primer on the recce nose will determine the version I will finally build (BA or BR)

That f.cking recce nose asked for lot and lot of work... But primer reveals the truth: the interpanel between the canera door and the nose is perfect!
So, now I can affirm definitively that I will build the Mirage 5BR  :-love

Next phase: to try to obtain good result on the fuel tanks: I have to sand the putty put on the last holes...
