Here's another Mirage completed same time as my F1. What an absolutely fantastic kit this is by Modelsvit. No filler needed & the best surface detail I've ever seen (so far) on a 1/72 kit. Definitely worth the money as this is slightly more expensive than similar sized kits. Also comes with full etch set for cockpit & fuselage antennas plus canopy masking set. The engineering on this kit is perfection. If Modelsvit can do this then why can't everyone else? Decals from the Syhart "Last Flight Cambrai-Epinoy" sheet. Mirage 2000C 1/72 No.85 103-LK "ESTA 2E.012" Primed with Ammo Mig black primer, both greys from the Hataka Brazillian Mirage Redline set & the exhaust from the Vallejo Metal Colour range. Klear gloss, Mig B/B PLW then final coat of Xtracrylic matt. Found another Master Mirage 2000C pitot in the spares box, which is the only improvement needed to this kit. Thanks for looking. Martin
Lightningboy2000 posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftItaleri 1/72 Mirage 2000C with Syhart decals To be precise - French Air Force Mirage 2000C 103-LI 2010 Nato Tiger Meet EC 1/12 Cambresis. Had to use the relatively OK Italeri 1/72 kit but its nothing special so it was a slog to build as loads of things need cleaning up on the moulding. Sink marks filled, panel lines on the nose cone needed removing. Other panel lines on the upper wing rescribed, dropped the flaps, used a more accurate ejection seat from the Special Hobby F1 kit That Special Hobby kit is great as a donor for parts for other mirages, comes in handy. Also used a Master brass pitot, drilled out the gun ports & used Albion Alloys tubing to great the gun barrels. For paints I used a paints from a Hataka set & used a pre mixed orange that was color matched for a NTM 2000D that I had built previously. Apart from the Syhart decals that were donated from a member of the Mirage SIG I was also given the oversize supersonic tanks from a Heller Mirage 2000N, for some reason these Italeri 1/72 kits & the Revell 1/72 2000D kits don't supply the extra large area ruled fuel tanks which is annoying. Looking forward to seeing some new mouldings of the 2000's at some point!

Mirage 2000C 103-LI “Tiger Meet 2010” - 06/8 update
trickyrich posted a topic in Mirage GBWell I’m first cab off the rank of this build, only because I though it was to start last weekend! Had all the photos and stuff ready as well. For this GB I wanted something nice and simple, I had the Eduard 2000C in the stash so all I needed was a new colour scheme as I didn’t fancy the ones supplied. The model is quite simple and really old, it started life in 1992 when it was released by Heller…..and it shows it! The panel detailing is quite nice but some of the other stuff! There are some nice extras with the model, some I’ll use some I won’t. So I plan to throw away the old cockpit and fit a new cockpit Wolfpack one. Plus a few other bits, at the stage I bought the wheels I had planned to build her with wheels down but have since decided to do her in flight. So the wheels are available to anyone who wants them. These doors are part of the reason why I didn’t want to build her wheels down! I’ll either rebuild these or replace them. I’ll probably have to replace them as their shape doesn’t match the door opening at all! Ok finally the colour scheme, well she will be rather bright! Not quite the simple scheme I had planned, but at least it’s all decals this time so that should help. It’s actually going to be part of a bigger theme of builds I’m planning. I want to build up a set of Tiger Meet aircraft, I have the 2015 Polish F-16CJ, I’ve got a 2010 Czech Gripen (about 1/3rd finished) already. So in future GB’s I’ll start to add more. As mentioned this will be do as an in-flight model, I have Leon already for the cockpit. With the new control surfaces I’ll try an give her an action look. That said I did make one really scary discovery when I was laying out the new control surfaces on the kit ones. After looking at some scale drawings it appears that the kit has some issues with the angle of the leading edge its control surfaces! I’ll know more once I start cutting things up….. and this was to be a simple build! Leon has since run away!
1/72 Mirage 2000C, Italeri + Syhart
Fuad posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftGood day, gentlemen. It's still not my topic, so I didn't especially climb into the materiel, and the customer didn't ask for. I decided to make such a frivolous anniversary variant associated with the closure of a French air base. No weathering, a kind of glossy, parade "head turner". Please enjoy with it))).
Mirage 2000C Qatari Air Force - Kinetic 1/48
Ale85 posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftAfter over 1 year, i finally finished a new project!! My Mirage is built OOB except for a resin seat from Detail Model and metal gears from SAC. Sadly the serial QA85 is wrong, it belongs to an two-seater Mirage... but i've discovered it too late Painted with Gunze H338 (light grey) and H307 (dark grey) It's not perfect, but i'm satisfied of my "come-back model" more pics tomorrow with better day-light! hope you like it! ciao Ale
And now for something completely different... nothing special. This is my Mirage 2000C-RDI of French Air Force, no.66, code 5-ON, Saudi Arabia, Desert Storm 1991. It's a Revell kit (rebox of Italeri), which require a lot of work to align it to the real Mirage 2000 (my English is too weak to describe all the changes). I used Eduard ZOOM PE parts, Master`s pitot and Master`s tip of refueling probe. Code numbers and serials are self-printed, rest of decals are from Revell set.
Mirage 2000C Cockpit, Intakes & Control Surfaces sets for Heller Kit 1:72 Pavla Hellers Mirage 2000C Kit has been around for a while now, as with other kits the cockpit and seats are limited by injection moulding in this scale. This resin cockpit is designed to replace the original kit item in its entirety. Due to the front wheel bay being on the bottom of the cockpit Pavla have moulded this from the with minimal clan up required. The set is comprised of a cockpit tub, complete with sidewalls and consoles, a replacement ejection seat, instrument panel, and control levers. All of the resin parts are nicely cast and crisply detailed, and there are no bubbles or casting flaws in evidence. The control and instrument details are nicely rendered, and the straps on the ejection seats are very realistically done. A Vac form canopy is provided; which is available as a part in its own right. Cockpit Set Canopy Also offered by Pavla for the kit are a set of intakes which include FOD guards. These are well moulded and come with the separate fence which is attached to the side of the intake. Intakes Another item for the Mirage 2000C is a set of control surfaces. Flaps and flap actuators are provided here. Control Surfaces Conclusion The Heller kit is a great kit, however it will benefit from these sets. Whether you just want a nice cockpit, covered intakes; or different control surfaces. You could go the whole hog with all of them! Either way these details from Pavla will enhance your kit. Highly recommended. Review samples courtesy of

horrido109 posted a topic in Aircraft ModernDoes anybody know when the 1/48 Kinetic Mirage 2000C will be released? I've seen quite a few adds of it in magazines but cannot find much of it on the internet.
