Around The Cockpit

キャノピーはパーツ交換で開閉可能です。 オリジナル・フィギュアの造形が良くないので、X-Plus製に変えてあります。 ウィンドシールド(風防)をボディに固定するための挿入ピンが目立ちます。

You can open or close the canopy by changeable parts. The original figure shape is bad, so I replaced to the X-Plus’. There are insertion pins fixed the windshield to body, they stand out.

Around The Cockpit


ミラージュは長い間生産休止商品で、再販まで何年間も待たされました。 それがついにラインナップに戻ってきたのです。 本モデルにはフィギュア、キャノピー挿入ピン、パーツ間の隙間等いくつか不満な箇所はありますが、全体的には高品質な商品となっています。 再販してくれたホビーマスターには感謝の気持ちでいっぱいです。

For a long time, Mirage was discontinued. I waited for many years. Finally, it’s appeared. I’m dissatisfied with figure, insertion pin for canopy fixed and gap between the parts, but I think it has an excellentquality overall. I’m very grateful to the Hobby Master for release this model.

General Background

ダッソーミラージュ2000は、ミラージュIIIおよびF1の後継機として開発されました。 後継機とはいうものの、主翼はミラージュIIIのデルタ翼設計の多くを流用したものとなりました。 F1はベルギー、オランダ、デンマーク、ノルウェー空軍の主力戦闘機としてF-16と採用を競い敗れましたが、新鋭ミラージュ2000は前述の国以外の10か国の空軍にとって実戦配備可能な選択肢となりました。 1984年、フランス空軍50周年に運用を開始したC型はミラージュ2000最初のバージョンとなりました。

The Dassault Mirage 2000 was developed as a replacement for the Mirage III and F1. Although it was a replacement it borrowed heavily from the Mirage III delta wing design. The F1 had lost out to the F-16 as the main fighter for the Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark and Norway Air Forces but the new Mirage 2000 had become a viable option for about 10 other Air Forces. The Mirage 2000C interceptor was the first version to enter operational service in 1984 on the 50th Anniversary of the French Air Force.
