    What would happen if now a poll is made between the Mirage IIIE and the F1?

    William Reece's information was based on his extensive research into original Navy Bureau directives and as many photos and actual relics he could get his hands on. For reasons stated by others, above, there certainly must have been variations. This issue is the same for so many aircraft, just like some people will state with certainty that all Bf109 landing gear legs were RLM02 Grau and yet numerous excellent color photos of them in service clearly show them in RLM65 Hellblau or RLM76 Lichtblau. Thankfully, this is a hobby- lives aren't usually on the line and the fate of the world doesn't rest on one's interior color choices. All we can do is gather as much information as possible and make our best guess.

    I think dassault has produced some beautiful airframes in their Mirage series. They have a very elegant look. The 2000 series is a very capable fighter. This is a modelling forum, so I think more people are concerned with the history and aesthetics of the airframe rather than pitting them in pissing contests.... So probably shouldnt even go there.
    I would love to see the 2000 or F1 in a 32 scale version..... My first love are Russian aircraft, but the Dassault mirage series are definitely a close second... But I want to see a 32 scale Foxbat first

    WOW - nice work - is there an "in progress thread"?
    Really curious about the finer details of this bird ie how the conversion was made.

    And while they are at it, release a 1/32 Jaguar as well!

    I've yet to understand why French jet fighters are not released in 1/32!?!
    Most of them have aesthetic lines, were used by a lot of countries, wore various war paints and are not too large to be released in 1/32 scale! Moreover, one of the most attractive topics for modeller - the IAF- is an option for nearly all of them (except the F1, 2000, Rafale and the Alpha Jet).
    So, except the fact they never had stars with or without bars on them, I do not understand this situation!

    Just a couple of guidelines: please resist the temptation to post "neither", or use this thread as a platform to request something else entirely. Secondly, please don't ask me which company is involved, as I'm not at liberty to say. You'll know if/when the project goes ahead.
    Just a little reminder of the OP request.
    Would have been interesting to see what would have been the result if the question had been "What version of the Mirage family would you like to see done first in 1/32 scale"
    I'm very happy to see the Mirage III in the lead though, a good choice and a great start!!

    Thanks for posting one of Brent's superb profiles.
    As a devoted 2 Sqn SAAF fan, it goes without saying that I like SAAF camo schemes - would be hard pressed to decide between the tan/DG/sky scheme or the air superiority grey scheme:

    Thanks! WIP here:
    The Hasegawa G-10 kit has all the necessary parts to do a G-14/AS, you can do a G-6/AS as well if you source some earlier props. Note that the cut off nose was from an earlier project that I salvaged the cockpit from, no cutting is necessary.

    I might bring out my masters I did for Paul's cockpit set and work over the details a bit now that I have more references. I have a partial MK 4 seat in a box, I could actually get-r-done too. Just sayin'

    Easy, the Mirage III.
    Especially the E versión.
    So many countries use/used it
    A lot of conversions can be achieved with it.
    Please don't make the mistake of doing the C versión.
    Very few countries used it.
    Just my .02

    It would be great if a Mirage III family would be considered, rather than either a C or E.

    The problem with the shorter C variant, is that it was only used by a limited number of Air forces (IAF, FrAF, SAAF and a solitary Swiss machine).
    The longer E variant formed the basis of all later Mirage adaptations including R, V, as well as foreign variants Nesher, Kfir, Cheetah, Panther etc.

    I like both aircraft so I thought I'd give the Mirage 2000 a boost in the hope that someone else will take on the loser if it has enough votes!
    Either one will do first though, the Mirage has been overlooked long enough.
    Now about the F1.............oh well, it was just a thought!

    Hi SinuheH
    Thanks for your words. After building these Mercedes engines for some years now I´m feed up with them so this build staled when it was time for the engine to be build but now's it done and the box is on the table again, more because I got an idea for a Vignette including this Albie with some figures. The idea was able to be realised when Kellerkind did the Mechanic with the early parachute.
    The wood works is fairly common among us modeller´s now. One way is to follow the tutorial on Wingnut homepage or decal it. I used Humbrol sand 63 as base colour and Burnt umber plus Yellow Ochre to fix the graining with. Let the Humbrol dry out totally before putting on oils, then when using oils use White Spirits for the oils so you not disturb the Humbrol. When all is done cover it up with a sealer type Humbrol clear.

    .......I am seriously considering selling off my entire 1/48 stash. This is coming from a diehard 1/48 builder who is not losing his eyesight. Am I nuts?
    Currently the only built 1/32 kit in my collection is my Tamiya Mk IX. That kit was such a joy to build. I have three more 1/32 Spits and 3 three 1/32 Tamiya Mustangs to build.
    The Corsair release is the Holy Grail of the hobby world IMHO. I will start building it as soon as I get my hands on it.
