Pavla U 48-40: Mirage F.1 Intakes




Scott Van Aken


For the Italeri/ESCI kit

This set is marketed as being the Starboard intake and seeing as how both intakes are a bit different, I'll go with that.  I should also mention that this is the Port intake. It seems these features are not on the right side of the aircraft.

One intake has a circular indentation that appears to be either an intake or perhaps a place for a light. The other is more elongated and as you can see, definitely has an intake on the back side of it. In addition, two other smaller, longer intakes are included. I'll admit to not having much knowledge on the various upgrades/modifications, so if a reader would like to help with that info, it would be appreciated.

As you can see, the molding is superb and these one piece intakes will certainly be simple to install. Not sure where the other intakes go as there are no instructions to help in that regard.
