If it is in 1/48 it will be breakthrough in detailing if they can produce all details from CAD through moulds to plastic.

There is photo of Huey there too ?!

Yes, you're right petarvu and also a AH-6 Little Bird CAD...

I've opened two dedicated threads

If true, then excellent news indeed... can we also have a Rafale please.. pretty please!

Good news about the M2000 but I really don't think there's any great need for a new Rafale as the Revell kit is very good indeed.

Agree about the quality of the Revell Rafale kit, be good to another two-seater out though, as at least I, have found the B quite difficult to track down in comparison with the M, perhaps one with the latest upgrades? Good news regardless with the Mirage :)

Is the Hobby Boss 2 seater difficult to find? I know this is "influenced" by the Revell kit (but you could argue that since its a model of a Rafale then it will be very similar to the Revell kit...just saying case any legal people take exception to my comment).

I don't think the HB kit is modernised in the same way that Revell have updated theirs but a little bit of self help (ie modelling) could update the HB kit.

try to track down a Revell kit...

if you happen to get an early one (without updates) there is a Wolfpack-D resin update set... (mainly chaff and flare dispensers at the heck, now nose and wing tip pylons)

The engine looks quite nice.

My earlier post about the Hobby Boss Rafale was not a request for one, I bought over a dozen of the Revell and HB models years ago when my main interest was everything French. I still admire the Dassault delta family (look at my avatar) and will follow the development of this kit.

Still no scale indication but also a single-seater M2000 CAD, so a family of M2000 kits... with bogus boundary layer splitter!!!

All we need now is an F1 in 1/32

If Mr. Song's wording ("finish") is anything to go by, this will no doubt be the first Mirage 2000-ish in any scale!!! :banghead::banghead:

I hope we don't wait too long for this one...I want I want. How about that Super Etendard in 1/32 as well while we are at it... F1 would be good too btw.

Hybrid version???? A M2000-5 nose radome, a M-2000C vertical tail, different a/c serial number on tail (77) and nose wheel door (40), MICA and Magic missiles - ok for s/n 77 no MICA on s/n 40 etc.

Kitty Hawk and the art of approximation...

nice but error littered box art..... and the saga continues.....

at least this paint scheme exists....

mirage-2000-5f-118-ax-77-french-air-forc

some more of this plane if the artists wants some more input....

https://hiveminer.com/Tags/118ax/Interesting

 

I guess they originally painted a C model and later changed it to the -5.... also the Magic II missiles are not really appropriate for this paint scheme ....

I hope that the decals will include both sqaudron (CEAM) markings, as they are different on port and starboard .... and not that green ....

 

 

if the kit is good, I will jump to 1/32 for once.... (and maybe be Italeri IIIC/ E models.....)
