1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Dassault Mirage 2000-5F   7.75"   5"

In the spring of 1997 the RoCAF began receiving the first of 60 French built Mirage 2000-5s with the last aircraft arriving in late 1998. The Mirage 2000-5s main task was high altitude offshore interception. At first the Mirage 2000-5 was a formidable aircraft with Active Radar and MAGIC II IR AAM's but as time went on newer aircraft were faster and lighter and suited for adaptation of new weaponry so the 2000-5 time is almost over with Taiwan seeking new aircraft to replace it. On June 2nd, 2017, the 499th Tactical Fighter Wing held a ceremony at the home base at Hsinchu where it unveiled four Mirage 2000s with special liveries to commemorate 20 years of service for the type. The paint scheme features a stylised dragon on the tail as well as P-47D, F-86, F-100 and F-104 designs on the underside of the aircraft - all types that the 499 TFW has operated during its 64 years of history.

Dassault Mirage 2000-5F

Designed as a lightweight fighter for the French Air Force, the Dassault Mirage 2000 was first flown on March 10th, 1978. The Mirage 2000 is a fourth generation fighter based on the Mirage III. It has a delta wing, one engine, a dual-intake, and can carry a range of air-to-surface weapons, including laser-guided bombs. Variants include a single-seat or dual-seat version. The dual-seat 2000N is nuclear strike capable, armed with nuclear weapons and equipped with navigation avionics that are capable of handling air-to-ground munitions. The Mirage 2000C is a single-seat, all weather interceptor armed with high firing rate 30mm guns.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale Mirage 2000 is a sleek diecast model with crisp panel lines, manufactured with only the smallest amount of plastic. The side mounted engine intakes with fixed inlet cones are constructed in plastic for greater accuracy and the configurable canopy provides a clear view of the instrument panel, control stick and ejection seat. The rear turbine blades are easily seen inside the exhaust nozzle and the large refueling probe is mounted on the nose (in most releases). The thin yet solid metal wing features exceptional panel line details, flap and aileron actuator arms at the rear and a complete set of removable wing mounted ordnance.
