MIRAGE A3-2


1/48 Italeri Mirage IIIO A3-2


by Steven Kreusser


Introduction

This is the 1/48 Italeri kit I built as Mirage IIIO A3-2 as it appeared in the colour scheme for the ARDU speed evaluation trials. As with all models there are just some bits you can’t get perfect. The yellow triangles around the nose were a pain in the a**e, and they are as accurate as I could get them.

Serial No: A3-2
Mirage type: RAAF Mirage IIIO
Based at: RAAF Edinburgh circa 1981
Scheme: Brunswick Green/Golden Yellow, with fuselage calibration points for high speed camera. This aircraft, in this scheme, was used in extensive speed evaluation trials at Edinburgh and Woomera in the late 70’s, early 80’s.
