Mirage 2000-5F & Mirage 2000D - 1/32 Kittyhawk


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

The last 2 years, I was busy with this quite demanding project. And now I am pretty happy to finally share the result :).

I built side by side two Kittyhawk boxings, both in French Markings: a Mirage 2000-5F during Operation Harmattan (Lybia) in 2011, and a 2000D from Operation Chammal (Iraq/Syria) in 2015.

The builds were far from "From the box" so to say...

Kittyhawk... well is Kittyhawk you know. Interesting subject, quite nice details, but mistakes, lacks, or incomplete intructions.

So I had to provide a lot of work to bring the models to a higher standard they deserve.

It was maily done with the help of 3D printing.

 

Non exhaustive list of addons:

- Exhaust: Reskit
- Cockpit -5: Renaissance
- Cockpit 2000D: 3D+Quinta
- Seats: Grandmodels
- Wing Tanks RPL541 542: FFSMC
- PE parts:  Eduard
- Wheels: 3D
- RPL522 ventral tank: 3D
- Missiles & Pylones: 3D
- GUB24: 3D
- Decals: Uprise et FFSMC
- Figures: Reedoak
