Scheme : Armée de l'Air, EC 1/12 Cambresis (SPA 89 wasp and SPA 162 tiger head)
About the scheme: an other possible solution was an all light bley sheme (spanish F1s) but it was less sexy and I'm french after all:-). I keep dark green, brown and dark bluish grey parts for my MiG 23 MLD.

The Dassault Mirage F-1C was the standard French fighter before Mirage 2000 entered service in the air force in 1984.

The initial prototype made its first flight in 1966, but the first production Mirage F.1 for the French did not fly until 1973.
The wings have only 5 degrees of anhedral, although in some photographs it seems to be more, even where the wings are completely clean.
Compared to the Mirage III, the F.1 was a markedly superior aircraft.
The F.1 needed a much shorter runway, and had better rough-field capability.
the Mirage F-1C is a defense and air superiority single-seater plane.
the basic F.1C fighter version also had a secondary ground attack role.
Later Armée de l'Air F.1C's were fitted with a fixed refuelling probe ahead of the cockpit, and were designated F.1C-200's.
The F.1 has had considerable export success, with customers in Africa, the Middle East and South America and Spain.

All versions are powered by the SNECMA Atar 9K-50 turbojet.
The wingtip stations were originally fitted with Sidewinders until the French introduced their own Matra Magic 550 short range AAM into service. For interceptor missions, the under wing missile was originally the Matra R.530.
Although the F.1 can be fitted with seven pylons, the outer wing pylons have not always been used, leaving the aircraft with just the centreline, main under wing and wingtip pylons.
The F.1 is still in service with France and other countries, although some countries have retired their F.1 fleets.

What a beautiful subject and a nice MOC you have build there John. I like the way you build the wings at the back (sorry I don't know the proper term). The angle between those back wings and the fuselage is very realistic. Very nice - Excellent!!!

The best of your planes. The colors are very good, the overall shape also. Would you give an opinion about the fighter I have in my web? (forget about the colors, the plane was made in the 90´s and I didn´t know that Bricklink existed). Thanks!
