Here are some pictures of my latest construction. This is a model kit from Italeri in scale 1/48.

I΄ve included many detail resin sets to building this model. The Fonderie Miniature detail set for the cockpit, exhaust and landing gear bay, the seat Mk.6 from Neomega, the landing gears from the Scale Aircraft Conversions and some parts for Exterior Details taken from Eduard F-1B set. 

The avionics bay and the hydraulic bay on the top of the fuselage with the interior details, the aircraft refueling bay and the hydraulic control panel on the sides of the intakes, were scratch-build. 

The model is painted using colors provided by Model Master, Intermediate Bleu (4744). This is the basic colour for the camo and finished with extensive weathering provided by Mr Hobby, Blue Gray (H 42) and white. 

Decals sets are from Icarus Decals representing a F-1CG Mirage (342 Squadron) in Hellenic Air Force duty. 

I hope you like it! 

Happy modeling.
