It's going to be Final three tone color scheme, so darker brown I guess. It appears to look a little bit lighter on photos I've posted, than on real sight. From my comparison with photos of real AZ, it seams spot-on. For future Mirage IIIC, I am planning to use more brighter and yellow-ish color.
Nope, something in 7.62 which should be really familiar to you :D

Favourite F1AZ scheme that is! Then your brown looks just about spot-on! :smt023 For some reason I thought you were aiming for the in between scheme of dark brown and green but before the grey underside... #-o

Selectively keeping the caliber hidden I see. But that should then be a FAL with a 16 or 18 inch barrel? [-o<

Another progress made yesterday. Green is on and I am happy =D> pic are from night on artificial light so colors are bit different. Last photo is from this morning. Some parts as nose or air intake leading edge is already masked and prepared for airbrush.

Many thanks for your support :smt023
I should make some progress today since GF will be away :lol:
Some spray work is on list. Of course I forget a box with custom decal sheet at home and I will get there next weekend so there's no reason to hurry. So I plan to apply filters to tone colors a little bit. And than wait for decals and maybe work on other started projects like Mirage III (SAAF, 1/48 scale) or Alouette III (RhAF in 1/72 scale) :D

End of the year is getting closer so it's time to finish some projects.
This mirage was washed and Matt coat applied. Unfortunately I am not able to get this beast flat :shock: Tamiya flat coat is still semi-gloss...
I glued armanent in place. Found out some resin dust in pit...
But yeah, it's done, finally :lol:
To be honest, 1/48 scale is better for me :D
