Mirage III-E 1:48 Scale Italeri Model Kit #2674 Review

Review and Photos by Steven Hardwick Steven Hardwick

The Mirage IIIE built in 1958 was one of the first jet aircraft to breach the Mach 2 barrier. Upgrades in the Mirage IIIE version, including a beefier fuselage and reinforced wings, helped improve the overall load capacity. Designed as a ground attack fighter it evolved nicely in the 30 yrs of service, with armament and an under-wing array of weapons. It also featured the legendary delta wing profile!


For the Modeler: This review covers the This Skill Level 2 (for ages 10 and up) Mirage IIIE Anniversary kit commemorating its 30 yrs of service (1964-1994) in the 1:48 Scale Italeri Model Kit #2674. It was re-released in 2009 with new parts from the original 000b 1980 ESCI kit. They are still available at some online retailers and auction sites.  It consists of 109 parts. The kit is molded in light gray on four sprues, one clear sprue, and one decal sheet (nine livery decal versions are included).  It also has a nice seven page folding instruction sheet featuring three pages of how to build and four pages of color and build options.    The completed dimensions are: 11¾” Length  x  7″ Wide  x  5 1/2″ Tall (wheels to top of tail).
