MM Avation Contest (Mirage F.1C) Tigered

And so it begins. I have selected the 1987 MM Mirage F.1C for this contest.

The Model consists of eight pages of parts printed on something vaguely resembling heavy bristol board. The pages are yellowed with age, acid and rust damage from the staples having been left in. There are also eight pages of mixed text and pictoral instructions (mostly text) and two pages containing text and four pictures of the completed model. The model can be built with or without a visible cockpit. However, I have yet to identify any cockpit parts other than the ejection seat.

Since I will have to scan this model and do severe recolouring to fix the damage mentioned above, I am going to attempt to recolour it as a Tiger Meet aircraft. Non-country specific, sorry.

You seem to be multiplying the challenges, Douglas, but I look forward to seeing your work with this one.

More than that. Those are just the ones that I had threads going on. She actually ate pieces of them. My daughter is worried that she might get sick from the glue, me not so much.

Darnn, what is it with cats and card models and I can reveal mice are fond of them too. My cutty sark seemed to be turned into a mouse home of some sort. I even managed to catch 6 mice in traps near the remains of her. covered in mouse doo doo so in the bin along with a few other party build kits.

I built this model years ago. My only issue with it was the black nose section looked kind of stupid when attached. There was no good transition to the fueslage. Hope you will check it out first.
