Mirage IIIBJ 1967 Heyl Ha'Avir Heller 1/48


Recommended Posts

Shape-wise to be said to be THE best Mirage out there, at least in 48th scale.

here in its two seater derivative!

 

Israel had ~4 B models, that also saw action in the 6 day war in 1967

 

one of them 787 from 119 Bat squadron

  • Heller High Tech concept model (metal landing gear, wheels, Ejection seats, PE for cockpit, )
  • 1/48
  • Master pitot
  • AMK external tanks
  • Reskit exhasut nozzle
  • ArmyCast decals

 

definitely not the easiest kit, brittle plastic, regular fit, raised panel lines

but GREAT shape!

and shiny, with Alclad II airframe aluminum

WIP in the recently finished HELLER group build

Alclad, according to the initial post. 

 

Stunning work!

That is a beautiful finish! So hard to make Alclad look that good, but you nailed it.

 

One fancy Mirage, what a great job. Well done 👏 👏 👏

Alclad II airframe aluminum over a shiny black base coat. No protective gloss coat applied , but on the tanks, so those lost most of their shine.

The 2 main fuselage frames are supposed to be steel, and the top of the mid wings is Alclad II with some but iron mix...

Cheers!

I tried earlier and failed.

A eeallyshiny black base and low pressure on the airbrush did the trick this time! :)

 

Thanks everybody!!

A Mirage type is definitely high on the list....  :D

But there is also the F1 and 2000....

Great you like it!

The IV is a bit intimidating model wise!

The Eduard kit looks rather good, I did not build one yet though, only used the very "simìlar" HobbyBoss version to hack it up in order to do a Swiss Recce RS once...

I do have some in the stash though and plan on an Argentnian CJ that were bought as stop-gap from Israel to replace some of the Harrier victims...
