This is the Italeri/Esci Mirage IIIE kit painted in the standard camouflage scheme in an 'in flight' Pose with a Hasegawa Pilot figure. Andrew did a full panel line rescribe and added scratch built details. He added RooDecal decals (not to be confused with Red Roo decals) which were absolute rubbish, liquid decal film made them barely useable.  Andrew only used what he had to and scrounged the rest from spares. The model has a steel pin nose probe.
