Mirage III CZ in SAAF

Coming straight from my work bench, here is my latest product, Italeri's new Mirage III CZ in South African Air Force markings.  Built straight out of the box you get a very nice replica of the famous Dassault Mirage III C.  I've chosen the SAAF CZ-Version to realize again a bare metal bird in colorful markings.  The finish is - how could it be different - simple kitchen foil like the other models I've shown here in my previous submissions.

The build was a really an easy one and I can recommend this kit to all Mirage.  Fans worldwide (and there are many) and can't wait to build the forthcoming Mirage III E/R/RD announced by Italeri for the coming months.

The kit includes a large range of weapons and you can arm your Mirage for every type of mission flown by this French Delta in her service life and the large decal sheet doesn't make it easy for the modeler to choose one of the versions offered.

With Italeri's new Mirage kit, Revell's over 40 years old Mirage kit can be easily forgotten.

Thanks for watching my pictures and reading my article and I will start cleaning my work bench for the coming Mirage III E-version.
