FCM Decals has an interesting line of aftermarket decals from Brazil. The subjects covered in this line include many Brazilian civil and military aircraft subjects, WWI aircraft, and the occasional look at the aircraft of other nations as well.
In this set, we have an interesting and colorful pair of Brazilian and one Argentine Mirage IIIEs:
- Mirage IIIE BR, 4927, 1° GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazilian AF, 1996
- Mirage IIIE BR, 4910, 1° GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazilian AF, 2002, '30th Anniversary' scheme
- Mirage IIIEA, I-007, 8 FG, BAM Mariano-Moreno, Argentina, 1975
This set is just in time for the recently re-released Revell 1/32 Mirage III kit, and these provide the modeler with three disctinctive color schemes that will appeal to those intimidated by bare metal paint schemes.
The printing of the FCM Decals line is sharp and clear, with the markings printed on a heavier carrier film that responds well to film softeners like Solvaset. The decal set includes complete stenciling, windows, doors and other essential details.

Thanks to FCM Decal for this review sample.
