From the review by Brett Green from www.hyperscale.com the following summary:

Recommendation:

Kinetic's first 1/48 Mirage IIIE was a great kit and this two-seater release adds a new dimension with the new and improved fuselage sprue.

Surface textures are beautifully crisp and fine, detail is very good and in my opinion at less than $40.00 the kit also represents extremely good value.

Highly Recommended.
