RAAF MIRAGE IIIO
75 SQN PT1
The recent release of the 1/32 Mirage from Revell has started a rush
of offerings from the aftermarket companies. In this offering of Highplanes,
they cover two Low Viv camouflage schemes of 75 SQN Mirage IIIO (F).
These schemes comprise:
a. Blue Grey upper / Light grey lower scheme. This option has all subdued
markings except for national markings. There are tail markings for A3-6,
A3-9 and, A3-23 so you have a few choices of aircraft. As this is a 75
SQN aircraft there is also the subdued SQN tail marking with the Magpie
as well as subdued stenciling.
b. The geometric Dark Sea Grey / Light Grey scheme. This option covers
the same areas as above except there is only the tail numbers for A3-25
and the markings are in black. There is a different set of stencils for
this aircraft that are the normal colours.
These Decals are once
again produced for Hiplanes by Hawkeye Models Australia and as such
are printed on the continuous carrier film. There is also the separate
sheet of white backing supplied for all markings that require it.
You are provided with two A4 sheets comprising a page for the different
colour schemes / marking locations and a page of decal application instructions.
This second page is a bit of a bonus as it is the sheet supplied with
the Mirage Ejection sheet which has the reference photos and line drawing
of the seat.
This set of markings is another good offering from Highplanes and should
go well with the Revell kit. As an added bonus, apart from the National
markings and the emergency release panels, there is sufficient markings
for two different aircraft.
