    Ejja guys you have the resources, you have the reference surely better then pictures, these are planes of two hereos who defected superior orders not to attack their brothers, it is know a historical fact, so come on built one for next exhibition! Are models available of this version?

    Time quoted that these were armed but to me from images those do not look as rocketpods, probably the MGs are loaded ...

    the first one is a F1C-200. maybe you can buy the C and scratch build some parts to make it an ED?

    Todays mirages are 502-508, duncan how are you going to replicate these numbers? scratch

    don't know... I don't even know if I'll buy the kit, let alone how I would do the numbers.... but maybe stencils or dry transfers would do?

    Maybe you can find the Italeri one (reboxed esci one but with some upgraded parts) which is a more recent release. It is pretty basic, you definitly need a new cockpit and a lot of work to detail the wheel bays but it is the only option in 1/48th scale. Neomega does a resin cockpit for the mirage.
