1/72 - Dassault Mirage 4000 by Modelsvit for Bassin-Maquette - released

Recommended Posts

I was at work before on my phone, now I'm at home on my laptop, I've tried to create an account to perhap preorder depending on post prices but nothing doing outside Europe so guess it t'll be full price from Hannants? :unsure:

This is looking very, very nice.

 

Now, can we have a kit of the EAP next, please?

 

There is one already :whistle:

Takes a bit of work though.

Well since the Mirage 4000 is a commission project for Bassin Maquette so perhaps a British retailer could do the same ?

Good idea!

Maybe You write Modelsvit about this idea on their facebook?

A person on a French forum discussed with Bassin Maquette. A 1/48 kit won't happen for several reasons:

- more costly project

- expected lower sales so break-even less likely to be reached

- Modelsvit needs to receive some payment at the start of the project so only one project at a time can be financed

That's a shame but understandable. I would love one in 1/48, but have grabbed this one as it's likely to be the only game in town. What an awesome beast in the air!

How wonderfull it should look amongst  a FLANKER bunch in 48 on an exhibition table of a show.....I tried to convinced Mr Bassin Maquette but such a model in this scale would be far too expensive to develope in regard of the market possibilities and its cost.. unfortunatly......:wonder: :tmi:

I understand the prototype aircraft donesn't have a lot of fan, and the 48 scale is also expensive for the production, we have exemple of the Y-23 from Trumpeter, also the F-20 Tigershark. I go to preorder the Mirage 4000 as soon as possible and hope that help the production begin .

That's right and I don't think Trumpeter can make an accurate  M-4000 too because the market for this kind of aircraft is to small. Bravo Modelsvit for that kit.

I had an email this morning advising me my example has been dispatched, and a tracking number from France, so shouldn't be long now folks.

gonna pick it up soon.Also since I asked on their FB page regarding the presence of drop tanks and they answer with a nope,are the Mirage IV drop tanks the same ones used on the Mirage 4000 because by eyeballing them while leaving drop tank details apart they do look the same
