How to build a Greek Mirage 2000 plastic model?

By on (page updated at 02/11/2017)

How to build a Greek Mirage 2000 EG air/sea configuration with Exocet weapon. Use the right plastic model and colors .

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

Greece have in operation 2 versions 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 to do this one.

2. Which plastic using? Kinetic or Heller?

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.

3. Hot points for the Greek Mirage EG

I consider that you know the differences between the 2000 EG and the -5 version 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. You have a little scrach work with Milliput.

Highly recommanded to read this post at the Fighters forum

4. Magic 2 weapons

In the above photo you have inert training Magic 2. You can find them in 1/48 scale from Arsenal. This is the reference of the product:

For those who will like to use the Magic 2 for the boxe, here is a Greec Magic 2. Nothing special to report.

About the the Exocet plastic model on Mirage 2000 you can read my page: How to build an Exocet missile for Mirage 2000

6. Color for the greek Mirage 2000

Build Greek detail  Mirage 2000

Bleu = (1:mirage blue or intermediate blue + 1:white) + 20 % blue azur

Gray: H307 Gunze

Gray Nose: H337 Gunze

The Greek Mirage are dirty. Why? Read my page about Greek Mirage Colors for plastic model Colors for Greek Mirage 2000

7. Decals

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.

Final

At the end you can have something like this. Enjoy!!
