It's great that you showed us your building process because otherwise we would never guess how much hammer and chisel work you needed to get something so elegant.

This Mirage is really nice. Congratulations !

And I'll second you about Mark One models : considering the offer of 144th Mirage before this kit, we should support to continue this way...

Thanks a lot Tom's.

I have completed a FoxOne kit last weekend and it highlights another flaw of the Mark I kit: the nose wheel leg is too short. The fuselage should sit in a nose-up attitude. I intend to build a Belgian Mirage 5 and I think something can be done to improve the sit.
