Another Heller Mirage V kit
was made in a similar fashion as the earlier made kit.
It was finished in a scheme for a "Force Aerienne Gabonaise" ( Gabon air Force ) Mirage 5G, the G standing for Gabon Export Model. A profile drawing is seen in the book Mirage III Planes and pilots on page 46 with a camouflage scheme.
I used these Mr.Hobby Gunze Sangyo
The model was finished as usual. The smaller parts like undercarriage was added as well as tinier parts like the pitot tube (made from a metal needle) but also for example mirrors in the canopy.
The final coat was a semi-gloss one
with the usual technique.
With the canopy installed, that completed the model.
