Wasn’t there a topic on the Modelsvit Mirage III E kit from last year? Couls not find it, but anyway this is a brand new kit with new tool. At the time the Mirage IIIE kit received a lot of flak due to the overall riveting and the break down of parts. Noteworthy was the wing division. I believe it was a great idea to have the joint line away from panel lines making it easier to clean up. I also like the riveting for the natural metal finished aircraft. But of course this is only my opinion. I know that from French sources some critique was put forward towards the nose shape. I have the kit and it is perfect with some amazing details. Remember this is 72nd scale kit and some of the details are worthy of a 32nd kit. Listening to criticism Modelsvit decided to redo the kit. Completely new tool. The latest news is that sprues are in the finishing stages of work. And yes, there are no rivets all over the airframe. The wing structure was changed making it possible to drop control surfaces. Have no idea about the nose cone question but I am sure Laurent will have a word or two about it. The kit looks good overall. So I will have to invest in another Mirage III it seems.
