Hi all, 

This is the Heller Mirage 2000N modified to get a D version. As usual with Heller, lot of work to get a decent model.

Happy new year

Excellent work on the aircraft & payload. 

 

I’ve put my partly built Eduard re-pop of the kit in the pending file, it may stay there after seeing yours!

Superb work. I love Mirages ad this one is really nice. The head work was well worth the effort.

 

Cheers

More than decent, that's stunning! 

 

Looking good in wrap-around camo too, didn't know the French did that. Very cool.

What an excellent model! Very impressive, especially the subtle very realistic weathering. I'm just re-starting modelling (exclusively airplanes 1/48 scale) after my way-too-early retirement from airline flying, but examples like this are leaving me scratching my head if this might not be a rather frustrating experience if I can't achieve an even remotely similar standard….

Thank you very much for your comments. Actually when I look at the pictures I have to admit the Mirage 2000 is a really beautiful aircraft (IMHO). I can't wait for the 1/32 Kittyhawk Mirage 2000C.

Grandiose!

The D and N have a terrific cachet, or should I say de la gueule?

 

Congrats!

Wow, that's a great 2000D! 

I love the result with this subtle weathering 😍

Lovely build, did you use the Renaissance detail sets to improve the Heller offering?

Thx for your comments, in fact it is a composite model

  • For the cockpit I used some Eduard photo-etch whereas many parts are from scratch.
  • The engine nozzle is from Aires.
  • The Magic missiles are from the Revell Rafale kit.
  • The GBUs, designation pod, specific chaff dispenser and vertical fin are  from the Kinetic Mirage 2000B box.

The Heller fuselage was completely twisted, I had to cut it in half to fix it.

Hello ,

 

excellent work and result on the conversion. May I ask what you used for the spine and tail ? Is it the Renaissance set ?

 

Best,

 

Stéphane

Don't worry, have a look at my RFIs instead, they'll make you feel better! 😂

Hello,

The spine and tail are spare parts from the Kinetic Mirage 2000B/N/D kit.

Best regards
