Mirage F1 CT (Italeri 1/48)

Hi guys,
This is my interpretation of the Mirage F1 CT, with the Italeri kit (1/48). It's an old kit, with a lot of flaws, but the fittings are much better than what I' was expecting, making the build relatively straight forward. Not sure that the KittyHawk one is so much better.....????
I've been using the Pavla resin cockpit (but not the ejection seat, which is for a Mirage F1C). This resin cockpit fits easily in the fuselage.
If I' were to rebuilt this kit, I' would also buy a new exhaust nozzle, since the original one is really awful.
The Eduard Missile (Magic 550) are nice, but both of them and their pylon were bended, and I' didnt manage to straighten them..... pity...
Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking.
Didier
