Mirage GB chat


Recommended Posts

Have we ever had a groupbuild for Dassault Mirages?

It would be a bit of an odd category. It couldn't be an STGB as there were at least six distinct airframe designs. III/5/50, F1, 2000, 4000, IV, G8/F2

There would be a huge scope for markings - from Australia to Zaire.

It doesn't have to be confined to Dassault Mirages. It can be anything derived from a Mirage. So that includes Kfirs, Neshers, Fingers, Cheetahs...

Anyone up for this? Bearing in mind of course that we are looking at 2016 at the earliest.

Update. We're now looking to join the poll for 2017. I will keep the list up so you will know whether you have previously shown interest. If you are still interested, please post to the end of the thread and I will update your names in red.

Sounds good to me, my only concern and its only a slight one is that if we get a lot of Mirage builds in the French Fancy GB it might be a bit soon after. But presuming you get the interest the voting will tell us how popular the subject is.

One of the few kits in my stash that isn't propeller driven is a Mirage (1/72 Revell in Bicentenary scheme).

It would be great to have an opportunity to rid myself of this imposter, so please sign me up too.

Thanks

Cliff

I only have one Mirage III in the stash :( Of course if I build it in a Mirage GB that would make room for more! :D

Indeed. I think it would have to be a standard GB rather than a Single Type GB, simply because there wouldn't be just a single type represented. So, we would need thirty interested members and the GB would have to go into the ballot at the end of the year.

Very interested, please add me to the list ! I'd be interested in both a proper GB covering every aircraft that carried the Mirage name and their derivatives or even just in a more limited Mirage III STGB

In case anyone needed a reason to join this GB I've added a link originally posted by Patrick (VG33) in the French Fancy GB

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1vy0gw_la-sentinelle-du-matin-2-4-lafayette-luxeuil-les-bains_shortfilms?start=1279

Now why would you not want to build a Mirage after watching this clip?

Ooo...MORE French cuisine, already? If (and that's a Size 12 'if'!) I survive the French Fantasy thing this year, I have a 'resting' F1 buried somewhere...

Now this was shown on Prime Portal from the Nuremburg show, surely this is a good reason for this GB to get the go-ahead...
