Mirage IIIO HPM 1/72
Here is one small Mirage III, the O version used by the Royal Australian Air Force.
This is a reconnaissance version, with cameras under the nose cone (barely visible on the photos).
The model is in 72nd scale, made by HPM. A nice kit with some resin pieces, and without major flaws, although some putty is required here and there.
I finished it rather quickly, and mounted it on a frame, to put it on the wall of my office. Another Mirage (Belgian V version) has been made this way, it’s on the last photo of the gallery.
The paint is Vallejo, the varnish too, the decals are from the box, as is the resin ejection seat. I didn’t use the resin nose cone, which was badly shaped. I modified the plastic radar version that was in the box and scratched the cameras fairing.
Hope you will enjoy !
