I like pastels and watercolor pencils. It's a pleasure to use them.

Anyway, kit is finished. Little parts are glued. Two parts inexisting in the kit are created and added (see first photo).

...But when I put the aircraft on the wheels... Horror... The Mirage haves not the correct attitude. The floor of the front wheel bay is too high in the fuselage; so the Mirage has the nose too low... I've tried to correct that: my intention was to put Evergreen in the wheel bay but trying to remove the wheel leg I've broken that part (I'm using industrial cyano for little parts). Continuing would have given me a "puzzle" of that wheel leg... So, I've repaired the part and stopped.

Finished.

I'm disapointed.

Really a bad kit...

Positive meaning: it helped me to find solutions and to create lot of parts.
I will try to remember that point only...

OTOH, I like that deco. I think I will use the same (or the one of the Mirage BA-30: red in place of yellow) for my 1/72 PJ Mirage; that I will continue soon...

A new coat of gloss varnish is applied; then paneling (Tamiya Panel Liner) and finally matt varnish...

Never ask- do you polish Pebeo coat before apply decals or use decals directly over coat?

I apply decals directly over coat...

First a coat of Pébéo gloss varnish, then decals are set in place. Difficult to place: long time before to remove from their support and very fragile...
 I've also made some micro painting of details I've forgotten until now...
