Mirage IIIRS 1/48


Recommended Posts

Presentation of my recently completed Mirage III RS "AMIR" 1:48

Hobbyboss Mirage III C forms the basis of this conversion. Recce nose is an highly updated version of Academys Mirage IIIR nose.

Canards are scratch built, the cockpit and Mirage III E lengthening, as well as exhaust conversion is from aconcagua models .

The excellent decals are from Matterhorn Circle's Mirage III RS sheet and went on without any problems.


All in all quite a challenging conversion, but worth all of it, if you want this beautiful machine in your collection!!


Here some fotos, looking forward to getting some constructive feedback :-)

Beautiful Mirage!! Love the orange missile!

The Italeri Mirage ain't that bad just wish it had engraved panel lines... (Sigh)

The Italeri one.... have two in the stash, and eventually will try my luck on them es well!

Maybe with AML exhaust nozzle and a new cockpit?

Thanks for the head up!!
