Esci 1/48 Mirage IIIO

By Anthony Pappadis

Anthony Pappadis presents his completed Esci 1/48 Mirage IIIO. You can view the original construction feature here . Anthony takes up the story:

Here are some pics of the same Esci Mirage kit nearly completed.

I still need to add the DEFA cannon barrels and the MATRA R530 missile. The auxiliary intake doors are positioned open to depict the aircraft in an engine running state.

I have also added the drain tubes to the wing inboard area as well as a number of small air scoops and probes to the lower fuselage. The antenna on the lower fuselage was also added as it was not included , whilst the upper mid fuselage antenna was replaced at the same time from plastic card.

The cannon diffuser baffles were added using discs punched out with a punch and die set and cut in half (very tedious)

enjoy! - Pappy
