then there's the Belgian MirSip upgrade to the Mirage 5.
basicly an F-16 stuffed into a Mirage 5 airframe.
it never entered Belgian service, but 20 of them, allong with 5 non-upgraded 5BD 2-seaters, were sold to Chile, where they flew under the name "Elkan" until 2006.

I think those look very easily done, I shall have to convert some of my Mirage III/50's in to some of those.

Draken International have acquired a dozen ex-SAAF Cheetah's for their private enterprise adversary simulation operation:

Nah, they can't fool me. Just painting 'Draken' onto the fuselage of a Cheetah or a Mirage F1 doesn't make them into Drakens.  :o

They have at least to be painted in the amazing SwAF dazzle camo to make it work.  ;) ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

In 1970, I was a little boy and I read in Tanguy&Laverdure cartoon that the Mirage III defeated easily the MiG-21, but... this was a cartoon. "True"-life: seeing the MiG-21 outperformed the Mirage III and V, Dassault designed the Mirage 521 with Delta+tailplanes:

The typical Mirage air intakes were replaced on export licence built versions:

The Mirage 5 S (ST for export) Sand Timer had a very long range, with kerosene in the big wing:
