Hi mates!!!

I have always been on fighting with metallic paintwork. Now the fairly simple Academy kit of the Mirage IIIc should become a new experimental object.
Painted with Revell 90 and Dark Aluminum from Vallejo.
The result can be seen here. My model shows an Israeli Mirage IIIc. It certainly works even better, but I am quite satisfied.

Cheers
Stefan

REALLY nice NMF result and finish given the age of the kit. Well done!

I really like what you're doing with these older kits (this and the -190). Looking forward to what else you've got on the workbench... keep 'em coming!

Thanks, Joe!!!

Yes, as I said......Oldies but Goldies!! I really love the "forefathers" of our modern kits and I still have one or the other modelling treasure in my stash.
