Mirage 5?

Is there a model available of the Mirage 5? It was an offshoot of the Mirage IIIE and looked much like it, except it had a longer nose that extended the aircraft's length by about half a metre. And the pitot tube was moved from the tip of the nose to below the nose.

Heller did do one; I built it about a decade ago. I remember it being a bit of a tough build. Raised panel lines and rivets too. Good looking model when done.

 

However, it is in 1/72 scale. Not aware of a 1/48 scale one if they have it.

Hi, David,

 

How about the 1975 Revell Kit #H-155 1/32 Israeli Mirage 5J Ground Attack Fighter, which can also be built as a French Mirage 5F? The kit is molded in sand color plastic. Markings are for Israeli 5J a/c #147 and French 5F a/c #22. Both sets of national insignia are included, of course.

 

FYI, there is also Revell Kit #H-185 1/32 Mirage III that can be built in four versions. Some builders will turn up their noses at almost 40-year-old Revell 1/32 Mirage kits, but who else has a better one in the game?
