Really nice. Out of interest did you airbrush or brush paint?
This one is all airbrushed, apart from the pitot tube which was hand painted

Heller 1:72 Mirage IV A No.61

Morning, An old kit that i picked up a while ago,  so thought i may as well have a stab! Had read how bad the fit was so bought some extra filler, glad i did...... the fuselage halves dont seem to be the same height, and pretty much everything needed filler(which is my least favourite part of this h...

Some bits went together really well but i had major issues with the 4 bits that make up the fuselage kin...
