WANTED!! 1/72nd scale Mirage or Rafale IFR probes.
« on: September 10, 2017, 06:50:44 am »
I have been rebuilding and displaying my mirage/Rafale collection, and found that some are missing their IFR probs :wub: I have checked the bits boxes but to no avail. Does anyone have any of these they can donate to my cause please? I will need a few looking at it unfortunately. I have looked for aftermarket resin ones but nothing (as per) comes up on Google.
Cheers,
Chris.

Best that I can suggest is looking on Scalemates and Hannants to see what they say had been produced.

Cheers Gondor,
If all else fails, I will have to have the planes supplied without IFR probes from France and a certain Brazilian company has done an add on kit for them. I can make these using quickboost skyhawk ifr probes, but they are not quite right, so we shall see.

Someone did white metal ones at some stage as I have one on the nose of the first PR19. Probably Aeroclub though.  :banghead:

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Sounds favourite that does Kit, Highplanes do or did an add on IFR probe kit to fit the Kfir and the Cheetah, I have replicated one to a certain extent using an A-4 Skyhawk IFR probe, if push comes to shove I could make some more like these and say that the mirages etc were not supplied with IFR equipment so they were retro fitted by a third party. I think there is a Brazilian company that did them, in real life.
Cheers,

I have PM'd him a few days ago about something else, but not had a reply as yet, his page is still down too isn't it.
