Quote from: Daryl J. on April 22, 2006, 11:48:20 PMMirage III: Would the intakes need to be significantly enlarged to feed the air-drinking Spey? How about the tail-pipe area?Having the requisite parts in both the Heller Mirage III and the Rev/Germ Spey engined Phantom it would be a fun kit to do.Or....even the Mirage IV
Quote from: Ian the Hunter-Gatherer on January 03, 2009, 01:34:05 AM.......AFAIK, in 1:72 the old Heller III/V kit is still easy to find and I know from experiance builds very nicely apart from the terribly fragile landing gear......
Quote from: Ian the Hunter-Gatherer on January 03, 2009, 01:34:05 AM And dont forget - and the reason I bought the kit in the first place (cheers Martin ) - The RAF evaluated the Mirage III, as a fallback point defence interceptor in the late sixties.
QuoteObvious ones would have been those nations who opted for the F-104 in the early sixties, like Japan, West Germany, Norway, Holland and Canadistan. But IIRC, didn't France have a 'We will sell to anybody who can buy' policy at some point ? so what was to stop 'bad' nations like Syria, Burma/Myanmar, (Socialist)Indonesia or even China etc flying the III/

Quote from: Geoff on July 13, 2008, 04:19:54 AMThe other potential Wifs for the Mirage III was the proposed Boeing/Dasault Mirage III/ F-5 in competition with the Northrop Freedom Fighter.I did a few a couple of years back - they are in the Glasgow show pics from 2007 IIRC. Mirage 5 without radar as the F-5A equivilent, IIIE as the F-5E, and US built J-79 engined IIIE as an agressor a/c for the US forces.Also the Mirage III for the RAF.
Quote from: MAD on March 01, 2009, 11:59:32 PM<...>And in all fairness, the Mirage IIIK in RAF service would have been far more versatile and cost effective than the EE Lightning series of variants, let alone the Hunters.
