This is my entry for this GB. It will be a Mirage F1CK of the Kuwaiti Air Force that managed to escape from Kuwait to Saudi Arabia as the Iraqis invaded in 1990 and fought during the 1991 conflict. I will be using the Carpena decals for this build, which actually only has decals for a two seater aircraft. I have ordered another set of these decals so that I can do a bit of cut and shunting with the Serial No to get a single seat aircraft. I am not sure which colour scheme I will be doing at the moment, but I am looking towards the blue/grey one as the numbers that I can make with the decal sheet will be from this range and that the length of these aircraft was the same as a probed aircraft so I would not have to loose a bit off the nose to make it. From pictures that I have available I have found that some of these aircraft were fitted with Mk82 retarded bombs beneath the fuselage and ECM pods on the wings, whilst the desert coloured ones only have the Super 530Fs beneath the wings.
