Haven't been here in forever. I think this is my first post in almost 4 years. I am primarily an automotive builder but have always loved military aircraft and the history behind the individual subjects. I do build aircraft from time to time and mainly stick to WWII era subjects but every once in a while I see something that sparks my interest and I pick it up, especially if it's a good bargain.

 

Many years ago I purchased an Aeromaster multi media kit of the Mirage 2000N in 1/72 scale. It came with a Heller kit along with resin cockpit and landing gear as well as photo-etch and Aeromaster decals. It was a good deal at a swap meet and looked like a pretty good challenge, especially for someone like myself that doesn't build aircraft all of the time.

I actually started this build over 7 years ago and got to a certain point in the build and set it aside. It has been sitting, collecting dust ever since. Well, finally I decided that it needed to be completed so two weeks ago I went back to it and here it is.

Also, mid build, I discovered Syhart decals and saw their Tiger Meet sheet for the Mirage and decided that it had to be done.

Stunning! That's one of the coolest looking and fiercest looking Mirages I've ever seen done. That's going to get a lot of attention wherever you take it. What a way to come back to the forums here....Congrats, and thanks for sharing!

Thanks Gil. The past 5 years I've been out of sync with modeling on a consistent basis as I've been an OTR truck driver. Now I'm back home and able to get back to building on a regular basis and I can also get back to attending some shows from time to time. Next up will be getting back to Jaxcon every year. See you in February.
