  Not sure about other scales.

There are some injection F-35C's done in 1/350 scale    ;)

Shapeways have a 1/285 F-35B, I wonder if it could be scaled down to 1/350?

Two seat Mirage 4000 armed with the ASMP or other weapons for strategic attack missions.

Wouldn't really get you a Mirage 4000, but how about taking a 1/48 Mirage 2000 body and swapping the forward fuselage for one of a 1/72 F-15 Eagle?
Cheers,
Moritz

Dear Freedom Model Kits, now that you have produced a proper F-20A and F-20N, could we have a flat canopy, no radar, original intake F-4A prototype Phantom?  From that I'd take it to a single seater attack aircraft.

Hi Daryl,

I'll send this on to HQ sir. I like the idea actually. Do you have some shots of the aircraft that you would like to build from?

Falcon does a nice conversion for this one in 1/48 and ISTR that DB (DB Models?) did a resin conversion in both 1/72 and 1/48.  Search for pictures of the YF4H-1 and F-4A and you should find plenty of info.  If memory serves me correctly, one of these aircraft was part of the Sageburner low-altitude speed record effort.

This gives you an idea of the changes necessary - I will post some more details later:

Cutting Edge has done 1/48 and 1/32 conversions I believe - you can see a write up on the 1/48 one here and one on the 1/32 and 1/48 ones here.  That said, the Cutting Edge ones are well out of production and increasingly rare.

Dear Airfix:  Please enlarge 1/144 Heracles to 1/72.
Used 1/144 as core kit for Slowly Jet. 
1/72 kit has super kitbashing potential.  Mild to major changes can yield interesting results.

1/48 kit could be bashed into large 1/72 build !

Dear Hobbyboss,

Please either release the 1/35 SEAL DPV (at long last) or remove it from your catalogue. 

Thanks,
Me.
