1/32 Mirage F-1 from …… Revell ???

 

On a recent post here Maxim from Victoria Australia send us pics of the AUS Model Expo including this superb 1/32 Mirage F-1

wearing the colors of ''Free Kuwait'' of the 1991 Gulf War Era.

 

On the competition card it is clearly indicated :

 

Brand : Revell !

 

Is it true ?

Is it scratchbuilt  ?

Is it a scratchbuilt with a wish ?

Thanks for any info about this superb 1/32 kit and its author !

The model was entered as a composite - Revell Mirage III ( front end ) & Revell MiG29 (wings) plus scratchbuilt components...  but the manufacturer part of the entry form only shows the major branding.    Thanks for calling it superb !   - Les

Beautiful work, as always, Les. Have you released your Winjeel kit ?

Thanks Hubert, re the Winjeel, no not as yet as some serious flaws in my master came to light. The wing root and chord are a couple of mm too thin horizontally and this has ramifications that require a rebuild.

Ok. It’s not like my stash is so depleted that I need absolutely, immediately, on-the-spot, to add my next project to it :) ...

 

Keep the good work

Haha I saw his Tigermeet build on-line, and figured it was a different build!    Obviously he repainted it.................great job on the repaint too!

Kitty Hawk said officially they will not produce a 1/32 Mirage F-1 in the future.

(this could be a good news)

 

Our best hope about it is most probably Revell Of Germany.

:hmmm:

Sorry, but I can't see how this could be good news, considering they had the project in their plans for a long time now ... That plans are changed (negatively) is not good news, whatever the manufacturer ...

I do not believe either that Revell will be produse it in the future (mid or near)... But hope never die....

We can also hope after their 1/32 Mirage IIIC and Mirage IIIE plus their superb 1/32 F-104G and future TF-104G, that if ITALERI keep on going

to expand its 1/32 ''Cold War'' Jet Fighter family, that a Mirage F-1 could be a very wise choice with worldwide appeal for the large scale modeller

market.

 

The very large sales they will make with their 1/32 F-35A could certainly permit them to finance a 1/32 Mirage F-1 mould !
