1973 Revell Dassault Mirage III with IsraCast Kfir C.2 conversion

Recommended Posts

Ok, figured I might as well get to building and posting something.  I am still putting together my paint booth which the kit is sitting on the top drawer.  The main piece should be finished by Friday evening and then I can order the spray booth.  Anyway, I believe someone had asked about this prior to me posting this; however, this is about the only kit I have that is old enough.  I do have a Beaufighter (as do several others, lol) but I am not in a RAF mood right now.  Progress may be slow, but I will give it my all.  BTW, both the kit and resin transkit were purchased from fellow board members.

This is awesome. I had one Revell Mirage which I had bought in the hope of sourcing one of the Isracast conversion. I was unsuccessful in that and I ended up building it OOB in Swiss marking for my son. I recently noticed that the Isracast conversion are again available for purchase from Isracast website. I will follow with much interest. David

I am not sure if they will do a conversion for the Italeri kit, but I do know they are planning a new release on the Ra'am transkit. I have not seen all the releases for next year so maybe someone can advise if there is a plan from Italeri or Kinetic to do the Kfir.

HI 

 

interesting project !!!! I will follow this build ...... I built the F 21 / kfir C1 version last year ,( I think the WIP is still available here) there were no real issues...... so good luck , and happy modeling ...

 

I wonder is the isracast conversion would fit to the I talieri mirage ??? ...I have  just tested  the resin nose to the Italieri kit , not bad at the first looks

Good question.  I will probably post some pics comparing as I go along.

Surely is going to be a interesting thread to follow and enjoy.

Which paint booth did you purchase. I just received my Artograph 1530 and am amazed on powerful and quit it is.

Keep 'em coming

I ordered the Pace Peacekeeper 36" booth. Supposed to be really quiet and work very well. As soon as it goes in I am making a trip to Lowe's for all the ducting.

 

Just got word that it will be delivered tomorrow sometime.  So sometime over the Christmas weekend I will be putting the duct in and finally throwing some paint!  Merry Christmas to me!

I have the booth in.  I am just waiting on some paint to come in.  I thought I had all the proper colors, but alas, I was missing some aggressor gray.  I have started adding all of the resin pieces to the fuselage.  I am beginning to think that nothing fits on this kit.  I am going to have to apply a lot of putty and do a lot of scribing before painting.  I will post pics sometime this weekend.
