I'm looking to build a camoflaged version of an IDF AF plane, so this is providential. Thanks for the review AND build.

Excellent build review Michael. Your finished Mirage III looks very good particularly with it's natural metal finish . I'm very tempted.

Thanks guys! As I said in the review, I have a tendency to sound negative in these because I point out issues, but I did like the kit and it sure looks good sitting on my shelf! Steve Andrews is doing a very nice build of the kit here and is spending more time adding detail and fixing things than I did under deadline, so you might want to check his thread out.
