Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Looking very good Nils. This build has inspired me to take a look at the Mirage.  I obviously need to do some homework.  I thought they were delta-wing planes very similar to the Kfir... This one doesn't look like that, so I think I need to expand my pool of knowledge out of the plasitc kiddie one... :)
Thanks!

It's only the Mirage F1 that isn't a delta.

They must have had an illness problem in the design office that week, and had to rely on the contractors for a while.  ;D

The F1 is the best looking of the Mirages IMO.

The Mirage IV for me, every school kid's idea of what a supersonic bomber SHOULD look like!  ;D

The IV is the second best IMO.

There was the Mirage G as well.

I’ve always liked the F.1 (whif potential aplenty - what if it had beaten the F-16 in the ‘Sale of the Century‘?) and the IV.  All the others, well, meh.

Oh yes, there were only two of them though, weren't there? One single seater and a two seater?
