I was scrolling down the latest Greatmodels sales list and
noticed the item below. My first guess is the Revell 1/32 Mirage
with some resin accessories. Does anybody know for sure what this
kit is based on??
High Planes Models 1/32 Mirage IIIE/R//RS Fighter/Recon
I had one of these back in the late 70s. As I remember, it was pretty grim
with lots of warped parts and other fit problems, rather poor engineering, and
LOTS of flash on most of the parts. I also remember it having some rough
surface issues and improperly molded parts. I freely confess that I never got
past some initial construction before losing interest in it and relegating it
to the trash can.
Until the recent releases by Trumpeter, Tamiya, and Hasegawa of good 1/32 scale
kits, I hadn't really ventured much into that scale since the 70s but these
respectable kits have revitalized my interest in them.
I'd like to see an up-to-date 1/32 version of the Mirage III C/E and/or an F-1;
more likely (if at all) it would be Trumpeter than Tamiya or Hasegawa.
