Italeri kit 1/72.  Decals from many numerous sheets.  


Its a Mirage 2000, whats not to like?

Sales of Airfix kits plummeted in the 1980s, and GCSEs had to be made easier as a result - James May


Definitely looks the part.  The SAAF cammies are a thing of beauty to be sure.




Beautiful model. Particularly like the plan view.

Maybe the "I wanna be an X-47A" camo scheme??  :wacko:

That sums it up rather nicely. Nothing more to add! :thumbsup:

Anything Mirage gets my vote!  :cheers:

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?


All hail the God of Frustration!!!


Now that is just absolute perfection Brad  :bow:
I have a soft spot for Mirages also,and this gal would look very nice in Honduras markings.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

The camo is wonderful, and I really like the chaff/flare dispensers (Am I right?) behind the belly fuel tank, instead of the chute. Is this a scratch built or an "error" from Italeri? Whatever, that looks great, so do the missiles (scratch built too, or from another kit?)

What I enjoy the most is the fact that the Mirage 2000 was a contender in the SAAF contest that saw the Gripen wining. Your model is like a vision of what could have been if it won the contest.
