Thanks Snoop, the cables that on the bulkhead will have to be added by the modeler himself, because they are not flush on the bulkhead, making not possible to cast them in resin.

Hi John

Do you have a price estimate on the 32nd Cheetah E?

Any plans for a Cheetah D conversion?

Thanks John

When you go for the Cheetah D conversion, that will also give the Mirage IIIB and D option as well.

I have some of the 32nd Cheetah E parts in my possession. Will post a test build here once I get going again. Just arrived home after 18 months in Slaapstad, so will kick off the E build once I've settled back in at home. The nose is an impressive single resin piece. The resin part for the MB.Mk.10 seat used in the E is very well done.

I had the opportunity to see John's setup at his house in CT. His wife was busy packing a bunch of conversion sets in 72nd and 48th scale. Looks like they have a really neat business going there. The amount of moulds he has is staggering :shock: . Anyway, thank goodness for Scaleworx to provide a really good range of 72nd and 48th Mirage (and other SAAF aircraft) resin conversion sets :smt023

Malcom,

It was great having you over to catch up. Really glad that you like the parts for the 1/32 Cheetah E :)

Anyway, the molds have been completed and the first full set has been cast successfully. Now it's just drawing up the assembly instructions and waiting for the decals.

Cheers,
John
