A few years ago Special Hobby was synonymous with soft mouldings, poor fit and dubious instructions, but their latest kits are really nice. Their Mirage F.1 is available in several boxings, including a two-seater, and I really enjoyed building this Greek F.1CG version. The wing-to-fuselage seam needed a bit of work, and reinstating all the panel lines across the seams was a bit of a chore (although that's not a fault of the kit). As you can see SH supply a whole bunch of armament, although none of it was applicable to this particular version Shocked Finished in the Greek 3-colour 'Fantasma' scheme.

Beautiful detail and build. Do you do commissions or sell on Ebay?
