CD48097 - RAAF Mirage III - Part 2

Recommended Posts

Finally made enough progress with this to announce it: CD48097 will be the second part of the "Mirage III over Australia" series and will cover the units/schemes that I could not cover in the first sheet. The first RAAF Mirage III sheet was one of the fastest selling items I have ever made.

Will you include 'special' schemes?

Cheers

Great news Kursad, looking forward to this sheet very much.

This sheet will be part of the April batch that I am currently working on - time to start some profiles as I get close to finishing the design. The 2 OCU "sunburst" was one of the schemes I could not get around to including in the first sheet, and it will be there on Part 2.

There is going to be a few unusual schemes on the sheet, including a couple gray experimental schemes and some odds-and-ends (Now that Kinetic is doing a dual-seater, "Daphne de Dual" will be there as well)

I am not sure what Stone's Ginger Wine tastes like (note to self: try this), but the photo that showed a 77 SQN aircraft with the brand on the tail band was too good to pass up.

It will be part of the April batch of releases, along with a limited (and final) reprint of the first RAAF Mirage III set.

Being an Ex 77SQN tech I can tell you that the Stones was a very strong tasting ginger beer. it was the SQN brew on some deployments. I was there when that particular picture with the the 2 COs and Stones sticker was put on the tail, one side only as I recall. Don't think the aircraft flew at all with it on either.

I think the time zones will work in your favour on this one Andrew. :coolio:

I just hope they last longer than 2 hours this time.

There are a total of 10 options on this sheet, 12 if you count the bonus markings for the Stone's Ginger Ale "zap" and "Daphne de Dual". Here are profiles for the first four:
