It is my first submission to ARC, hope you enjoy it.  It is a very old kit that was re-issued in 2009 and the model was completed without any PE or resin items, built directly from the box.  Except the "ESCI" Mirage kit (it is hard to find now), all the 1/72 Mirage F1 kits have raised panel line.  I had to re-create the recessed panel lines, it was the most time consuming procedure.  Furthermore, I rubbed  thin the canopy and add the engine outlet panel to replace the plane panel of the kit.

I already made a complaint to Airfix regarding the poor quality of decal sheet, some of them dispersed when put water, and were hard to stick on the surface, I feel not satisfied with the final appearance because of the poor decal performance.

Enjoy the photos.
