Two of the models represent the Aatar 9c engine modification.

I forgot how difficult it is to build the Eduard Mirage kit. The mold shows its age and considerable work is required to clean the parts. The not so good fit of wings and engine nacelles to the fuselage will test your patience to the limit.  

The addition of resin parts complicates matters since a large surgery is required. But, the results are worth the effort.
