Kinectic 1/48 Mirage III E Brazilian Air Force
This is a Brazilian Air Force Mirage IIIE, in the air defense color scheme used back in the 90's. These machines were replaced by the Mirage 2000 which, in turn, will be replaced by swedish and locally built Grippens.
The kit is a nightmare regarding fitting, specially in the air intakes and aft lower fuselage. Almost ran out of sanders and superglue. Instructions sheet is also very poor. I was told they corrected some of these errors in the dual seat version. But it is not as cool as this one...
I've made a few mistakes during painting, hopefully you won't notice. That is my first black basing project.
