Year of the Cat, Mirage 2000-C Tigermeet 2003. Revell 1/72
Yes there is my second build for the Year of the Cat group build. Finaly got this French cat ready for action.
It took some extra work to get this kit nicely done as this is a Revell re-box from the original Italeri kit. Colours I used are from Tamiya, Life-Colour and Revell Aquacolor. For the blue pattern I made the masks myself using Tamiya tape. The centreline fueltank is painted with Vallejo metal colour "dark aluminium" which has given a great result. A wash with Vallejo black wash gave the used look of this tank as seen on many photos of the real type. The Matra missiles received some coloured bandages which I sourced from my decal spare box and made to fit. The metal coloured bandages on the large Matra missiles are made from Bare Metal Foil also cut to fit. Further more just out of the box. It turned out very nicely and even in 1/72 scale makes for an impressvie aircraft in my collection. It was great fun to add this Mirage to the Year of the Cat group build. Thanks for being part of it. I hope you like this French cat.
