New Review: Eduard Mirage III C 1/48

Recommended Posts

Product Image

The Dassault Mirage needs little introduction. It is a fighter aircraft that became iconic during the 6 Day War and other conflicts. Twelve nations flew the Mirage, including France, Israel, Australia and South Africa.  Compared to other jet and propeller fighters, the Mirage is quite small and compact, but packs a mean punch!

This kit is a ProfiPACK re-release of Eduard's previous Mirage editions. After the super tight box lid was finally prized off, one finds multiple dark grey plastic sprues contained in two bags along with a separately bagged clear parts sprue. The instruction book, decal sheet and photo etch fret were located at the bottom of the box. Everything appeared in good condition, although the main canopy had separated from its sprue attachment. I found some flash on quite a few parts, and mold misalignment between each side of the one piece tail, as well as numerous other parts.  I have an earlier edition, Kit number 8102, of the Mirage and most of these mold misalignment problems are evident on that one as well.
