Another great looking plane! It’s a pitty that the only model kit that is available in 1/48 is the one from Iteleri, based on the 1978 tooling from ESCI. Nevertheless, it includes a decent amount of details.
The kit does show its age in the included very basic cockpit and exhaust pipe. I did not do much to improve them though. I just built it with the canopy closed and I only included a PE ejection seat handle from Eduard. Still, I think the result is passable.
As the Greek Mirage F.1CGs did not use Matra Magic missiles, I borrowed 2 Sidewinders from my spares box. The decals come from Icarus decals.
