"The Modeller's Guide to the RAAF Mirage IIIO/D" - Gary Byk

Tonight, Anthony Papadis presents us with his conversion & update/scratch build Esci 1/48 Mirage IIIO
Anthony takes up the story:

Here are some pics of a 1/48 Esci Mirage IIIE/O I am working on. I can't wait for Eduard to release their 1/48 Mirage IIIE kits, but in the meantime, I have dug into the stash .

I have used a Hasegawa pilot together with a modified Heller (Mirage) seat.
The cockpit coaming details were removed and all the instrument details were added from bits of solder and copper wire. The instrument panel was scratchbuilt by sandwiching the decals between two sheets of .005" plastic sheet. The instrument decals were punched off the decal sheet using a punch and die set
