New MIRAGE III Aussie Colours!

Hey guys, I am working on a limited edition run of Mirage III kits in Australian colours. They will be the Topgun Mirage kit, I am arranging a production run of Mirages, since the stock ran out I have been thinking a lot about this.

The 2 colour schemes I am looking at right now are in the photos below.

Camo is one of my favourites, I think it looks great, it did on my mirage, and it would lend itself to being changed into other versions of the Mirage quite easily.

The Fanta Can colours are pretty classic and also very popular!

So lets hear everyones thoughts, who will put their hands up for an Aussie Mirage?

PS: Also thinking of doing an Aussie NAVY Hawk in the grey camo!

Put me down for one camo please mate, you did me a solid on my l-39 and helped with my f-4 setup only fair I get the mirage from u as well, will they be sold with the retracts like your other kits and same price as the current mirage?

Not a fan of the orange but can see some appeal to it.

I have to nut out the details with HTG first, hoping we can do a retract package like the other kits and keep it under $200.00 delivered anywhere in Australia. Shipping to the rest of the world will only add a few $$ on top of this.

sounds sweet, I would be going full scale on mine adding retracts and little details etc so camo for me if perfect.

The Mirage airframe is a good basis for scaling up, its not going to be a perfect scale model of the actual ADU Mirage, it will be close, but the main idea here is to get the Mirage back into production, I have to commit to a lot of these things in order to get the molds shot and kits made up, and rather than just pump out a pile of 2 tone grey or blue kits I figured why not do custom decals and paint and make it look good at the same time!

You could put me down for one, Mark.

Not fussed on a particular colour scheme, both look great.

I would probably buy one as well. I assume it will be a 90mm so I will be getting another setup from you as well. Keep us updated.

The grey thing is a bomb rack. The orange scheme is the Aircraft Research and Development Unit bird - they must have been using a rack painted for the standard paint scheme aircraft.
