Hi everybody, it wasn't in my plans to build the above, but when I was offered a discount by Italeri, I had to choose a kit to purchase and my choice fell to the Mirage IIIC But which Mirage III? I decided to go for Israel Shahak, so I also ordered the conversion kit and seat made by Isradecal. Also I got a lot of inspiration from Kaireckstadt model also being presented in these pages. OK, let's have a look on what I've done so far: Landing gear wells Cockpit (without the seat, because I'm still waiting for the packet from Israel). Dashboard is from Eduard, side consolle from kit. More will follow as soon as I get the parts I'm waiting for. Alberto
Here is one of these models you buy at a swap meet on a whim for a gold coin, in this case $2. It's not a very model, with poor fit around the cockpit, wings and air intakes. This was the F-21 Lion boxing and the decals were no good, so I got some spares out of the decal folder. I also added a pilot, bombs, bomb rack, drop tanks and sidewinders from the spares box. I built it for Wings model show here in Melbourne next month, where we are running a category called 'Make a Mirage' and it'll fill a hole on that table nicely, just don't look too close! lol
