Kit #AA2040. 1/72 scale. Highly-detailed resin kit with decals. In 1976, Dassault-Breguet Aviation announced a privately-funded "Delta Super Mirage" project which was a scaled-up version of the Mirage 2000 with twin SNECMA engines installed. Two years later, a mockup with a size comparable to the F-15 and the Su-27 was displayed. In 1979, a demonstration aircraft named Super Mirage 4000 was rolled out as the world's first aircraft to have parts made from carbon-coated composite for weight reduction and fatigue resistance. The aircraft achieved Mach 2 in its sixth flight. However, they were unable to sell any aircraft due to its high cost. In 1986, it was renamed the Mirage 4000 and was repainted with a new desert camouflage scheme to be used as test platform for the Rafale fighter until it retired in 1995. The Mirage 4000 went on to be displayed at the Paris Air & Space Museum.
