Björn Goldman (Polarbear) has built Eduard's 1:48 scale Dassault Mirage IIICJ and chose to finish it as the famous "Shahak 59" which was the highest scoring aircraft of this type in Israeli service with a total of 13 kills. The accompanying text combines both modelling and historical aspects.

Excellent work, Mamutel! I love the added patina on the NMF! What a nice cousin!

I take it that you are as pleased as I am with the SBS cockpit etc. I hope to see more of these great Mirages - in my view the quintesential fighter jet of the 60's - as nicely done as yours!

Welcome to Aeroscale, btw!

Cheers! // PolarBear
