CHRIS CLIFFORD reviews Kinetic’s 1/48 Kfir C.10 kit, which replicates airframes operated by Colombia and Ecuador.
Dassault’s Mirage has been the subject of much adaptation and upgrade activity over the years. Arguably the most famous programme is that of the Israel Aircraft Industries Kfir (Lion Cub), based on the locally manufactured Mirage V (Nesher). The family began with the Kfir C.1, which entered service in 1975. Since then, the family has grown considerably, with much more modern equipment being retrofitted over time.
Above: The overall quality of panel line and rivet engraving is good. This fuselage forms the basis of many Kinetic Dassault Mirage kits, besides those replicating the Kfir.
Above: Main undercarriage bays are busy areas and note the recesses for the airbrakes.
