Tim Hatton [litespeed] built the new Kinetic 1/48 Mirage 2000C. The frequent sight of this little but capable fighter has made it a personal favourite of his.

That does look like a manageable amount of filler behind the nose gear well and wing root. Looks like a good model!

Tim,
Excellent review that is more then fair, yet very well detailed as you take us the good and the not so good issues of the kit and build. One thing that I did notice is the fit of the windscreen and canopy. Both seem over sized in width. The canopy left in the open position would solve that issue, but the windscreen would need some very precise and accurate putty work.
