I'm waiting for the "D" or the "N" version and that could be great if the ASMPA missile is included.

Waiting the the D and the N here as well, the C does look good though.

Nice cover art with the SCALP under the M 2000 D, how about the loadout option for the  "N"?

Well, this is what happens when you don't give a rat's colon about accuracy.

The decal sheet is quite funny too.

From French forum Master194 (http://www.master194.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&p=1424375#p1424369), the decal sheet:

Reading that thread I hope they make some amendments, they have done before.

Unfortunately, I don't think so... Moreover just one month or one month and a half before its release, printing is surely already in progress. 🤔

What they did before was just print an amendment sheet with the other side on it, so dont write it off just yet.

Ah... did they like that for the other face of the tail fin of their Mirage F1B ? I have never heard about that...

No right side view, but yet... 😉

So, they can do the same for their Mirage 2000C sheet ? English security markings for Indian, Greek and Taiwanese liveries they propose are missing...

Kit’s been released, got mine earlier in the week.  Like the C kit, a lot of nice detail, but some issues to deal with.  Some of the decal issues have been noted, but add in the only IPs in the kit are for the B, not the D or N panels.  Also, same weapons as in the C kit, so no ASMP for the N or bombs for the D.  Incidentally, the instructions are only for building the D.  Nothing about the differences for the N.

 

So are they doing a B release too?  Seems like it would be the same plastic, with different decals.

So much money to develop a kit, doesn't matter if well or badly researched.... and it is not sold for peanuts either.....

I do not get it..

Is the Heller 1/48 kit still the most accurate one shape wise?

You get a B, C and N.... and those are ok!

Well, no correction on the both schemes where one side was missing...

And a quick review made from these few pictures... (sorry in French)

Few weeks ago, Romain Hugault shown an illustration for Mirage 2000B artbox... but didn't mentionned the manufacturer... maybe it's the clue for a futur KH release ?

I'm surprised there are no markings for Ramex Delta team in the D/N kit.

What kind of markings are you talking about ?

But the Ouadi Doum scheme Mirage 2000D has been used by Couteau Delta...

They are basic but very nice indeed. A resin burner and ejection seat is basically all I would bother with.  But an observation on the B kit, which as far as I know was only released by Airfix and not Heller themselves. The radome on that one is a bit off. They correctly engraved the radome line further back than it is on the N, but the N/D radome is less bulbous in real life. So the B kit radome looks too skinny, especially when put next to the C kit.

 

My solution: I have a Renaissance resin radome to convert a C into a -5. The leftover C radome will be grafted onto the Airfix B kit 😎

 

Apologies for going off topic....
