FCM Decals has an interesting line of aftermarket decals from Brazil. The subjects covered in this line include many Brazilian civil and military aircraft subjects, WWI aircraft, and the occasional look at the aircraft of other nations as well.
In this set, we have a nice variety of Mirage 2000s with a good cross-section of variants from France, Brazil, and Peru. The nine examples featured here include:
- Mirage 2000C, 4947, 1 GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazil, 2007
- Mirage 2000B, 4933, 1 GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazil, 2007
- Mirage 2000C, 5-OZ, EC 2/005, Orange AB, France, 2008
- Mirage 2000-5F, 2-EB, EC 1/003, Dijon AB, France, 2010
- Mirage 2000P, 062, 412 Sqn, La Joya AB, Peru, 2005
- Mirage 2000DP, 193, 412 Sqn, La Joya AB, Peru, 2005
- Mirage 2000B, 5-OW, EC 2/15, Orange AB, France, 2008
- Mirage 2000D, 133-LF, EC 2/3, Nancy/Ochey AB, France, 2010
- Mirage 2000N, 3-JN, EC 2/3, Nancy AB, France, 1993
This decal set provides the distinctive markings for all nine aircraft plus a set of complete maintenance stenciling for one aircraft. In addition, FCM provides their great paint masks to render the Brazilian national markings in paint instead of decals. Color instructions are provided in FS595 standard.
This set is intended for the Heller 1/48 Mirage 2000B, the Kinetic Mirage 2000B/D/B, or the Heller/Eduard/Italeri boxings of he Mirage 2000C.
