Italeri 1/32 scale Mirage IIIC with SAC gears and Master Pitot

Recommended Posts

in this kit shapes are good but fitting of most part is poor. It looks like a scaled up tool from the Kinetic 1/48 scale one with some modifications made for the C variant quite evident on the fuselage surface. Aden 30mm guns and their guards were scratchbuilt with brass tube sections

Decals in the kit come with a too dark blue shade for the French roundel so I masked mine and repainted with faded blue, musquettaire on the tail was also repainted freehand with Vallejo Acrylics. Some part in the kit are for the III E version only so watch your references instead of instructions: change the IP and leave off the landing lights from the front gear leg. Magic missiles come with weird front wings so I removed them and made captive missiles instead. Camouflage is for a Djibuti based Mirage with very faded colours due to heat and salty air.

Very nice, you again build on my opinion that you are one of the best modelers in the world.
