Mirage III CJ Israeli Air Force - Eduard 1/48... finally done!

Recommended Posts

Good night to all!


here the last birth directly from my workbench... an israeli Mirage III CJ!

Base kit is the Eduard, but I used the resin set for cockpit and wheel bays from SBM. Other details are from Eduard photoetched set, pitot from Master. 

For the natural metal finish I used the Aclad Lacquers and Mr.Paint semi gloss for the final coat. The decals are a mix from the kit and Isradecal set.


Hope you'll enjoy. Cheers from Rome, Italy! :bye:

That is simply one excellent and flawless finish.

An amazing build of probably the best looking aircraft ever produced.

Congratulations - this now sets the bench mark for NMF I think!


Cheers.. Dave

As others have already mentioned, the aircraft has a flawless finish. But what I want to complement you on is the photography. It isn't easy to capture models the way you have. The resulting photos really bring the aircraft to life.

Wow - just great. You nailed it. The best looking jet ever and you did it justice. The only thing to make it look better? Swiss Air force version ;-)
