Italeri 1/32 Scale Mirage III BZ Finished

August 31, 2016 · in Aviation · · 29 · 2.9K

I AM DONE...I got back from the Congo about 2 weeks ago, it took me three days to get back to normal before I could wander to the work table. I had fun with this kit,it took a lot of work to make up the two seat version of this iconic aircraft, it looks great next to the Cheetah, it gives you a before and after look at all the modifications that were done to the BZ air frame to get to the Cheetah D.

I do apologise for the quality of the pictures, I am not very good at photography.

Non the less I hope you enjoy the final product.
