Thanks for your gentle comments. ;)
The F.11 is currently drying with paint on the 2nd part of the underside (because the model seems too fragile to stand upside down for a single painting of the underside).
Yes, Dizzyfugu, this plane looks a little like the cartoonish Mirages in the comic book of the 1970s "Les Petits Hommes" (the little men, by Seron).

 :thumbsup: I was not aware of that, but the model conveys the impression.  ;D

The tiny Sirage F.11 is finished to build, next step will be painting: <_<


A French alternative to the XF-85 Goblin perhaps ?
Oh to be whiffing again :-(

Yes but sharp, less like a barrel... ;)

Would it fit under a Mirage IV though?  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Yes! In a whif world where scale-o-rama is routine, the Sirage F.11 1/144 would fit under a Mirage IV 1/48 without problem...

Very nice.

A French parasite fighter? OTANs answer to the Goblin/B36 mix?

Thanks!
My model is not a military killer but a civilian/bird dream. ;)
I have painted the side above. Soon finishing with black on the windows/eyes... ;)

VERY difficult to see the Mirage F1 in that.  :thumbsup:

Thanks!
Uh, for us in France, this is rather obvious it comes from a Mirage F.1: those air intakes are clearly Mirage (we have no F-104 no TSR2 legend) and without delta wing, with tailplanes, so this Mirage is a F.1 source... <_< ;)

Brilliant.
Just the thing for the daily commute.
I expect the VTOL rocket nozzles are underneath where we never see?

Reminds me of some of the Convair seaplane projects. I can see that with retractable skis/floats commuting from lake to river and back again, and most major cities are built alongside one or the other, or both. ;)

Great stuff Tophe  :thumbsup:

I'm almost tempted to do that with a 1/72 Mirage F1, I've only got 4 of them at home...  ;D
