1/32 Mirage

Hi Troops:
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??

It's the old Revell kit with decals for a couple of RAAF IIIOs

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.

I have one of these, and a Kfir conversion kit for it - the conversion kit is certainly better quality than the Mirage. But if you want one, it's all you've got...
