Mirage F1 Intakes

Pavla 1/48 Mirage F1 Intakes First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review March 2012 Manufacturer Pavla Models
Subject Mirage F1 Intakes Scale 1/48
Kit Number 48040 Media Resin
Pros Nice enhancement for the Italeri kit Cons
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) under $7.00

First Look

Pavla produces an interesting line of detail sets for a variety of subjects, each one designed to enhance a particular aspect of a given kit. In this set, Pavla offers another nice enhancement for Italeri's 1/48 Mirage F1 kit. For some reason, Pavla lists their intake replacement sets as 'Starboard Intake' but as you can see, both the port and starboard intakes are provided.

The set provides four parts in gray resin, each engine intake is complete with shock cone in a single seamless part (port and starboard) as well as two auxiliary intake scoops. This set will also work with the old ESCI 1/48 Mirage F1 (same molds).

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
