French Air Force Mirage 2000C 1/72 Modelsvit

Recommended Posts

Here's another Mirage completed same time as my F1.

What an absolutely fantastic kit this is by Modelsvit. No filler needed & the best surface detail I've ever seen (so far) on a 1/72 kit. Definitely worth the money as this is slightly more expensive than similar sized kits. Also comes with full etch set for cockpit & fuselage antennas plus canopy masking set. The engineering on this kit is perfection. If Modelsvit can do this then why can't everyone else?


Decals from the Syhart "Last Flight Cambrai-Epinoy" sheet.

Mirage 2000C 1/72 No.85 103-LK "ESTA 2E.012"

Primed with Ammo Mig black primer, both greys from the Hataka Brazillian Mirage Redline set & the exhaust from the Vallejo Metal Colour range.

Klear gloss, Mig B/B PLW then final coat of Xtracrylic matt. Found another Master Mirage 2000C pitot in the spares box, which is the only improvement needed to this kit.













Thanks for looking.

I was ogling this beauty for a while but I was put off by the somewhat high price tag. Your presentation however surely makes me want to reconsider that. Very nice!

I'm quite impressed by your building and painting skills. Is the kit designed such that the use of PE is optional rather than mandatory?

Very nice and thank you for motivation to build this one too 👍

Cheers! It was a pleasure to build. Best glue to use is extra thin glue, just went together a dream with just a light sanding of the spine joint & lower wing to rear fuselage join. Will likely be getting another one!

Awesome work again on another French beauty. One of the most beautiful of modern jets (in my opinion) and you've done her justice

Cheers! They are pretty well designed & well proportioned aircraft. 👍
