Hello

 

I am new here and will make my debut with a Mirage IIIE built from the Italeri kit in 1:32.

 

The model took me more than 600 hours to build after some modifications, corrections and refinements were done.

 

The italeri kit generally is a lot better, than the old Revell one, however the quality leaves something to be desired and it is not up to the standard of these days.

One of the Major problems of the Italeri kit are the intakes, which are looking too slim, which I have reshaped until they looked satisfying.

 

An other problem was the canopy. The one in the kit was warped and completely useless. Italeri and the German importer were kindly enough to spend a free freplacement, junfortunately which wasn´t much better either. They looked blurry and hours of sanding and polishing were spent for a nice result.

You must be a very ambitious Mirage lover! This is certainly one of THE best

Mirage models in this scale I've ever seen. Everything looks just perfect.

I raise my hat!!!!
