1/72 Dassault Mirage 2000 D, Armée de l'Air, Revell


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone !

 

Here is a 1/72 Mirage 2000d I recently finished ! I always wanted to build one, here it is.

The Revell kit was nice, even though it is slightly inaccurate (the wings are to small, some details are missing...). But hey ! it is 1/72 and I wanted to really finish this one (I haven't done any "model finishing" in a long while). 

 

I struggled a bit with the painting, the colors might a little to dark. Also I regret that the canopy doesn't fit... it must be made to be open... and I wanted it in flight.

Anyway I hope you'll enjoy !! :)

PS : The exact name of the scheme is "Mirage 2000D, EC 1/3 'Navarre'" in 2009, in base 133 Nancy-Ochey.

Salut Jeano,

 

that is a good looking D that you have managed to build. Great job!

A pity really that the canopy is not cooperating... but such is life!

 

I like it very much indeed!

I think it looks great! The canopy is lamentable, but I thank you for bringing it to our attention. I will have to correct that before I build mine!

Ye i had same problem with canopy ! And looking through your model i found out that i forgot refueling thingy, hahaha, gona fix that tommorow. I think the problem is in mid section of cockpit when you connect two parts of fusselage.
