    Can this plane be any one of those Mirages that used to visit us during the Libyan Uprising?

    I remember some of them had interesting schemes ...

    skyhigh is right!
    Maybe you'll have to lighten down FS 35164 with a bit of grey (or white) as suggested by the instructions and depending the brand you're going to use.
    For example, on Humbrol enamels, a color match i often see on HAF mirages which have the same scheme as the French, is a 2:1 ratio of 144 intermediate blue and 127 light ghost grey.

    And here's a profile of the B version - training/two seater


    That's the single seater C


    And some others  Smile 
    Another C, during Gulf war in 1991


    N version (Nuclear)


    Also the N version during Red Flag exercise in the early 90's in Nevada


    D version (Diversifie)


    And the latest version -5F
