An excellent build,the Mitsubishi F-1 definitely looked fast even when it's sitting on the ground. Too bad it wasn't able to be exported due to arms sale restriction by Japan.

thanks!

yes looks fast and pointy!

but not so sure about its actual characteristics as a hot-rod though. very similar to the Jaguar, (same engines, same general shape, but a bit longer)

I assume a practical loadout / range is not so great...

 

I assume again, no figures checked and certainly no hands on experience of course, the Mirage F1 (also similar in external characteristics and relatively close to the Jaguar ) would come out on top.... at least on top speed ;)

please let me know if you know better BM! would definitely be interested in a comparison! (nearly all Mirage F1s retired (but Iran and some private aggressor companys in the US (DRAKEN, ATAC)), all F1s retired, most Jags (but the finally not reengined Indian ones)retired....so come forward with what you know! :)

Very nicely done, the paint colours look exactly right for that scheme 👍

Really nice job! Until This post peaked my interest, I thought this kit was a Fujimi re-issue. I may have to purchase one (several).

 

Thanks for the inspiration.

Brilliant job on that Werner, I enjoyed the WiP, the end result of your endeavours is inspirational, I'm looking forward to mine arriving from HLJ,  on its way as I write this.
