The Mirage F1 used the Super 530F and the 2K used the Super 530D with a longer body and different fins.

Hi Dave

 

According to Wikipedia

Length    Super 530F: 3.54 m means 354 cm / 72 = 4.9166
               Super 530D: 3.80 m means 380 cm /72 = 5.2777

thats closely about 3 mm in length so you only need to add an small shim and  to reshape with sand or add new fins please your modeling skills are above normal modeller 

 

I believe in you

 

Regards

 

Armando

 

PS I never liked too much the ordenance in Heller kits still the Speciall Hobby cost about £15 pounds and include a whole bunch of goodies

  • Homebee changed the title to 1/72 - Dassault Mirage 2000C/EG/5F by Modelsvit - 3D renders+sprues+box art - release in 2021

It appears it's not covered in divots, this pleases me greatly, in which case I will be buying many!

I've not long since bought a repop of the Heller kit but after seeing that decal sheet, can see a need for one of these developing too.

If its not a sarcastic question, it should be orange, not red.

You're right on that. We were having a bit of an 'Allo 'Allo moment there ;)

It appears very close to the red of the French roundel on my monitor, hopefully it will be more obvious in real life...   ...hopefully.

Isn't it a relatively common practice to sabotage the decal artwork to avoid copying ? The colour in the profile is more orange.

Hi there

 

Well for all that want to do more than one Dassault Mirage 2000C maybe I can suggest to get the Mistercraft kit. This one is actually a clone of the old Heller kit according to Scalemates

 

https://www.scalemates.com/kits/mistercraft-e-31-mirage-2000c-5--1207717

 

And after a brief search I found this in their Facebook page that include decals for versions:

Mirage 2000 C-5 EC 1/2 "Cicognes" French Air Force, Nancy Ochey France 2013

Mirage 2000C 331 Squadron(Mirra)"Thiseas" 114 FW Hellenic Air Force, Tanagra AFB, Greece 2016

Mirage 2000C EC(115) 82nd Squadron Egiptian Air Force, EL Basur Air Base, Egipt 2019

Mirage 2000C(KF 135) "Tigers Squadron" Indian Air Force, Maharajpura Air Base, Gwailor, India 2015

Mirage 20020C(4940) 1st Air Defence Group Brasilian Air Force, Brasil 2015

 

So getting a couple of this cheap kit plus an aftermarket  stencil decal plus the Modelsvit kit you can have most off the family

PD That by the way is what I'm planning to do with Heller Weapons set and some Aztec decals for the Peruvian sample

Is it me, but EC 1/12 was based at Cambrai, but I thought 5/330 were the cote d'argent tigers being flown out of Mont de Marsan, or? Another possibility that the airframe was hired by 330 and after returning to Cambrai it still flew in these markings afterwards. Anyone who could shead a light on this?

They flew with it.

I know and thank you for the picture. My question actually was, did 5/330 flew out of Cambrai or Mont de Marsan? As the profiles say Cambrai but I think Mont de Marsan.

 

Just a small detail offcourse 😉

Definitely Mont-de-Marsan.

They were often seen in Cambrai for Tiger Meet or other Open Day though.

Yes, definitely from Mont-de-Marsan. They were frequently at Cambrai, perhaps that's the reason for the mistake.

With a little bit of work and patience (scratchbuilding pylons and getting launch rails and missiles from the spares box or another kit), it's possible to represent the Indian Air Force Mirage 2000H with the russian Vympel R-73's. 😉
