midget Mystere

My recently completed batch of 1/300 aircraft includes this Dassault Mystere IV (model of unknown make).  I decided to finish it in Israeli markings as I have a 1956 project on the back burner.  Actually the decals are a bit on the large side but it beats hell out of trying to hand paint them!

I love French jet fighters of this period. I see what you mean about the decals but at this scale a bit of exaggeration can't be a bad thing to help identification?

Actually, painting markings in this scale is very theraputic.

I tend to use transfers now but feel guilty about it.

Good point - the scale may be a bit 'off' but I can certainly live with it!

Far be it from me to argue against you needing therapy!
