Any more news ?

You'll get updates. Oh and thanks for the great walkarounds :thumbsup:

Looks like I'm sellin' all of my Argentine Air Force 1/48th scale Finger 'n' Dagger resin conversion sets by Ricardo Dacoba I've got left + Aerocalcas/Condor decals for each type.

I'd keep the Finger conversions and associated decals at the moment. I'm not quite sure that Kinetic can afford to cover all possible versions and upgrades that ever existed.

Belgian,chilean (and i think those from Gabon) mirages have a different keel that has a tail hook, shape is very different

Pakistani Mirage 5PA2/PA3 too? They seem to have the belgian Mirage 5 keel and the Chilean Mirage 50C nose.

Well, thanks for the heads-up then. But whut 'bout the Nesher/Dagger? I think no-one would ever be able to pull off one of those versions not even by usin' the 5F nose shown on the piccy, right? It's a subtle different nose.

Luckily I got one from ya :D Really nice stuff them Ricardo Dacoba resin conversions!

Hell, yeh, my good Fouga Magister ridin' mate! Guess ya're one of those few lucky foreign modellers rejoicin' in the bliss of havin' one of Ricardo's long-outa-production resin conversion sets. Monsieur Laurent is another one. ;)

Cheers, Mikkel.

Er... in what way the Nesher/Dagger nose is different from the 5J/5F nose, oncle ?

I won the PM war. The pics might interest you guys.

The Mirage 5J/F nose...

Mirage5F_34grd.jpg

...is identical to the Nesher/Dagger nose...

However some M5 version had an Aïda II radar-ready conical dielectric nose tip. That was the case of the Gabonese M5G...

... or of the Pakistani M5PA...

hello all I would like to add to the Belgian Mirage 5 issue from the manufactures side, even though the Belgians were the largest user as a perspective you would sell the most popular versions first to pay for the molding process

the standard mirage 5 was used by more than one user. As you can Kinetic has in the past produced other variants later as with Kfir c1 and various F-16s so either the mirage 5BR and Elkan may be added later.

I really hope Kinetic could include the 1.700 litres fuel tanks, 1.300 and supersonic ones, as Matra R-550 Magic, Matra 530 in both IR and SARH and the JL-100 tanks. A pair of Argentine and Venezuelan Air Force declas will be welcomes as well.

With the Nesher nose you can build an IAI Nesher, IAI Dagger, and including a Kfir one, an IAI Finger, superb!!!!!!. The only thing that worries me is that strange breakdown for the tail´s top.......

There is some video of the sprues for the III kit up at Hyperscale.

Not sure if we will get everything in the first boxing but multiple noses..four panels etc.

Lots of options.

well after seeing some of the trees of parts one not shown here but on Shizuoka hobby show video on Hyperscale there are 4 instrument panels and canards unfortunately not all trees are shown on video. hope that the Kfir bits fit on without mush trouble

Praying and crossing fingers that Kinetic or Wingman will provide the proper nose to build this one, IMHO the most stylized and elegant member of the whole Mirage III/5/50 family. The Chilean Air Force (FACh) Mirage 50C.
