How to build a Greek Mirage 2000 plastic model?

By Panos LIAKIS

1. Choose the type: Mirage EG or Mirage 2000 -5 ?

Attention: les Mirage 2000 -5 sont en config air/air avec des MICA et c'est les vieux 2000 qui sont toujours opérationnels en config air/mer avec des Exocet (ils peuvent porter 2 sous les ailes) et des Magic 2 (pas de MICA)

Greece have in operation 2 type of Mirage 2000 C (Single-seater): the old 2000 EG and the new one Mirage 2000 -5 version MK2. The Mirage 2000 -5 are used in air/air configuration with the MICA missile. The old Mirage 2000 EG are used in air/see configuration with the Exocet missile (they can handled 2 Exocet's under the wings) and Magic 2.

Who say Mirage Greek => say Exocet (the only ones to use I think).

So I suggest you do this one.

2. Hot point for the Greek Mirage EG

At the plastic level you can use both Heller and Kinetic.

Kinetic has a significant advantage: there are decals (not good quality) for the Greek versions.

If you opt for Heller you have 2 solutions: either you buy the Icarus Decals which are very very expensive but of good quality (about 20 €) or you call on the colleagues who have surely in rabe the Greek versions of the decals of Mirage Kinetic.

I consider that you know by heart the differences between the old 2000 and the -5 so I will not tire you the top. On the other hand pay attention to the differences between the French and Greek versions of the 2000 EG.
