Default Mirage III 1/5 scale

Hi friends:

I am working in a Mirage III E version in 1/5 scale, at the moment I have the plug ready for cover, the fuselage with fiberglass and painted and the wings and vertical fin with aluminium.

I show you some photos, I hope you like. You can see all photos in my Picasa Album:

Hi Carlos

Great job! Planket with aluminium sheet looks great. That's what i will do also. The surface of my Mirage is stillto clean.
Here some pictures of my scratch build Mirage lll. (The intakeposition at the photo is wrong. It's adjust). The landing gear ist made by Andy Dossenbach.

Best regards from the Matterhornstate / Switzerland

Hola Carlos

Do you plan to offer the Mirage as a kit? I would be interested in 1 and another for my friend in Australia?

Thanks, Gregg

I think the C-arf eurosport is scale 1:6,7 if you double it, i think it wil be a bit to big.
Personally i would like a twin eurofighter to be about 3 metres long, using two 160 -180 class turbines.
