Academy 1/48 Mirage IIIC


Recommended Posts

I've finally finished a model of my own for the year, although I could have picked a better kit to start with. I bought this for about 9 bucks years ago when  it was about the only Mirage III you could buy in the scale. I had visions of converting it into a Mirage V Dagger, but with the coming of the new Kinetic kits, I don't need to do that anymore. 

 

There isn't much to say about the plastic, apart from; it's a poorly detailed, ill-fitting, obsolete relic. A Britmodeller member was kind enough to send me his leftover decals from the Eduard kit and these were really nice to use. If you have this in the stash, just buy the Eduard kit.

 

I did get the pink a little dark, but it'll do.

And weathered the roundels.... ;) Heheh, I chuckled when I saw your Pink Panther, thinking you gave it a silly scheme because of the "high quality" of the kit.. I almost spit out my coffee over the keyboard when I came to the last photo! Good one!

Yes, I was wondering what I should do with this kit as I have 4 of the new Kinetic offerings and when I found pictures of this, it was perfect. I think it was painted up as a joke between squadrons, but they ended up taking it for a flight in this scheme.

Not sure about the pink but nicely done, lol!!

 

I know, it's a little bit gay, but I entered it this weekend at Model Expo here in Melbourne as a joke, but I won a 3rd place in the category!!
