    Airfix 1/72 Mirage 2000C

    Hello everyone!

    A quick summer build, another Mirage 2000, this time in 1/72nd scale. It's the single seater of the aircraft and i'm going to make the E (export) version and specifically the EGM of greek airforce, as a gift to my nephew.  

    Airfix kit, finished assembly and sanding fast. Gears up and no armement.


    Moved to painting with a brush, colors come from humbrol enamels in mixtures.
    127 light ghost grey + 20% white, for the grey and
    144 intermediate blue and 127 light ghost grey in a 2:1 ratio, plus a couple of drops of white and 48 mediterranean blue, for the blue.  


    Applied a coat of varnish before painting other details in order to protect basic colors and still another one to be applied for the decals.


    Kind regards!  cheers

    Thank you Noel and Brian!

    Finished!
    Decals on, for the first time i used a decal solution, microsol of Microscale. Most of the detail is raised, applied a wash to the engraved lines and experimented with oil colors for further weathering.
    Final varnish coat is matt Vallejo from the Model Colour range.






    I hope you like it, any observations are welcome!
    Kind regards!
