Fantasy Printshop | ED-32121: Dassault Mirage III
Reviewed by Kevin Futter
Through its Euro Decals range, Fantasy Printshop has released a set of decals for the Mirage III in 1/32 scale. The set comes packaged in an A5-sized re-sealable plastic bag, with an A5 booklet included. The decals themselves are supplied on two A5 sheets.
Markings are supplied for five aircraft, with four of the five from different air forces:
- Dassault Mirage IIIO 90-560, 7 'Bandits' Tactical Attack Squadron, Pakistani Air Force, Karachi, 1990s
- Dassault Mirage IIIO A3-25, 75 Squadron, Royal Australian Air Force, RAAF Butterworth, 1981
- Dassault Mirage IIIE '4-BE', Escadron de Chasse 2/4 'La Fayette', Armée de l'Air, Luxeuil-Saint Sauveur, 1980s
- Dassault Mirage IIIEZ '842', 3 Squadron, South African Air Force, AFB Waterkloof, 1972
- Dassault Mirage IIIO Project ROSE 90-513, 7 Squadron, Pakistani Air Force, Quetta, 2012
The painting and placement guides give colour information in FS format, along with equivalents for the Humbrol, Xtracolour, Xtracrylix, and Lifecolor paint ranges. Colour names are also given, so you should be able to find suitable paints whatever your preferred range.
The decals are high quality, being crisply printed in perfect register, with good colour density:
While I can't vouch for the accuracy of any of the schemes in this set, the decals themselves are very nicely done indeed, and it's nice to have some more options for large scale Mirage builds.
Thanks to Fantasy Printshop for the review sample.
