 The Mirage F.1 was designed as a lightweight multi-role fighter to replace the earlier Mirage III. Unlike other members of the Mirage family, the F.1 does not have a delta wing. It could carry more fuel than the Mirage III and V, had a shorter take off and was also more agile. It entered service with the French Air Force in 1973 and it has also been exported to many other Air Forces and is still in service with some Air Forces today. 

It has proved successful in both air to air combat and air to ground combat and has seen action in many conflicts around the world, most notably in the First Gulf War and Afghanistan. The F.1B is the 2 seat, combat capable training version.

Kitty Hawk are a new manufacturer from China that are producing high quality kits. The kit looks well detailed with engraved panel lines and plenty of internal detail. It comes with plenty of choice for ordnance and has a placement guide as well as a small fret of photo etch parts, including instrument panels and seatbelts. 

There are markings for 2 different French Air Force planes
