Hi Everybody,

Here is my latest finished HPM Mirage family model, the Cheetah E.

Am pretty happy with it and it's a nice addition in my SAAF shelf in the display case. Next should be a IIIC and some F1 too...

Not much to say about the built. Not for beginners as there are some resins and photo-etch bits, but with a bit of experience, no big deal.

I choose the “half” low viz scheme, 5Sqn Initial Service Scheme, AFB Louis Trichart 1988, Cheetah E 832.
I used the H305 Hobby Color paint, which is very closed to the low viz decals, maybe a slightly lighter grey would have been a better option, but too late now.

I couldn't resist to take some “family pic” with the D I made some time ago and my 3 Mirage III

I’ve taken the liberty of using that delta wing array pic as temporary WhatsApp profile pic!

Hi Michel,

It does indeed resemble a pleasing representation of the Cheetah E, despite a couple of inaccuracies on the resin parts. You have good finishing skills. A light overspray on the decals gives a better low-viz presentation :smt023
Not often one sees a collection of SAAF deltas :)

Cheers, John
