Greetings from Colombia!  Les Chevaliers du Ciel were a successful comical strip from the 1960's and evolved to the present day and had series of television and movie; narrates the history of the lieutenants Tanguy and Laverdure, who fly in different devices, from the Super Mystere, T-33, Mirage III, Dornier Alpha Jet and finally in the Mirage 2000.  This model shows the last flight of the Commander Tanguy in a Mirage 2000-5 during the celebration of the Tigermeet of 2002.

At the end of his career the Commander Tanguy is invited to fly in the modern Mirage 2000-5, being his last flight before the retirement of the active service and of his adventures as a Chevalier du Ciel.
He is represented by a Hasegawa figure and it is accompanied by other figures of the same brand that there represent a military police officer and a mechanic of flight.

The kit of the Mirage 2000 from Revell in 1:72, the only modification was the armament configuration and the cockpit which I added a series of screens in order that one saw like of Mirage 2000-5.  I used the decals that came with the kit.

Saludos desde Colombia, la tierra de Juan Valdez!

Colombia es Pasión!
