  1. Hi all, here is my entry. I've had this in the stash for a good few years now, might as well build it! When released this new kid on the block just about usurped the Hasegawa kit as the kit to build in 1/48. Of course it has now been bettered by the Tamiya kit. It's been a while since I built a 48 scale jet so be gentle.... Anyway the intention is straight from the box but with aftermarket decals for an Iranian bird in the greyish/blue camo (I've already done the Fujimi kit in 1/72 in the original classic scheme. Will try and post a few more pics of the contents later - work first!
  2. This is the ejection seat called out in the 1/48 AFV Club Iranian Saeqeh-80 version of their F-5E kit painted according to the kit instructions. It was on a kit specific sprue with the twin tails unique to this version. The standard F-5E seats are in the kit, but this is the one called out in the instructions. I'd like to replace it with a resin one, but have no idea what it's supposed to represent and I haven't found any clear photos of one of Iran's Saeqeh's to identify what it should be.
  3. My choice is the Hawker Persian Fury. I will be using the Matchbox 1:72 kit )of course!). I have the Kora decal sheet for the Iranian Tiger Moth, which will provide the national markings. I haven't decided yet whether to scratchbuild the Mercury engine, or just nick one from a Lysander kit. Earlier releases were molded in blue and light grey, but the one I have is very low contrast light grey and silver, which should make priming it when the time comes a much simpler task
  4. The Iran-Iraq War Volume 4: Forgotten Fronts by E.R. Hooton, Tom Cooper, Farzin Nadimi, published by Helion and Company On 16th January 1979 Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi left Iran for good. In doing so, he cemented the revolution that had sought to topple his failing regime and paved the way for foundation of the Islamic Republic of Iran under the rule of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Fearing that the Iranian Revolution would have a destabilising effect on Iraq, Saddam Hussein made the decision to invade, sparking the longest uninterrupted convent
  5. Hi all, can an anyone out there confirm for me that the Sabres flown by Iran and Ethiopia (ex Iran) had the slatted short wing and not the 6-3 wing? As far as I can see from photos it was the slatted wing but various artists of profiles show the 6-3. As always, your advice is always gratefully received. Thanks. Martin
  6. Hi all, Here are some pics of my recently finished Airfix 1/72 CH-53 built and painted as an IRIN RH-53 using decals from Print Scale. For an old kit it went together very well and has lots of nice raised rivets, just like the real thing. More pics can be found on the build log here :- http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234997643-airfix-172-ch-53s-65-double-build-iran-and-israel/ And if you haven't visited the Helicopter GB then go and have a look, there are some fantastic builds on there and it's well worth a visit. There are more piccies on the build log.
  7. Time to state my intentions with regard to this Group Build. The plan is to build two of the good old Airfix CH-53 kits at the same time, the reasoning being that they are both the same colour on the inside and should build up the same hopefully meaning that it won't take much more time than building one (and it helps to thin the stash a bit!). Anyway here are pictures of the two different boxings I will be using for the build. And the insides of the box to prove that they have not been started yet. As you can see the parts are still safely wrapped up in their plastic bags. I have anoth
  8. Hello gentlemen, I am starting a new project which I had planned a long time ago. I am going to build an IIAF F-4D which took part in the Iranian military intervention during the Dhofar Rebellion. And, as this is a quite unusual subject, I'll give you a brief summary about this conflict. Historical summary of the situation in Oman in the 1970s The year is 1952, the country is the Sultanate of Oman. An armed rebellion, which will last until the late 1970s begins. On the rebel side, radical left armed groups, mainly supported by South Yemen, the USSR, China and other Eastern bloc countries. T
  9. Hi guys, So, there are all those Iranian F-5 variants: single fin, twin fin, single seat, twin seat, round intakes, square intakes, Saeqeh, Azarakhsh,... but what about that with the wing mounted mid-fuselage? Was this for real or just a photo-shopped picture? Does any of you know of some other images showing this aircraft? I searched the web but ended up empty handed. I'd like to see how the wing trailing edge meets the fuselage... Would it be the exact F-5 wing moved up a notch and forward?! Thanks for looking, Niki
  10. Something new from me - Iranian F-14A in 1/72 scale. Built with Hasegawa SP14 kit, converted to Iranian with HDL decals and some scratch (opened refueling probe door and AIM-9Ps). Eduard`s PE ZOOM set, Rob Taurus` vacu canopy and Master`s pitot tube were used. AIM-7Es are Eduard`s Brassin and AIM-54A are from old Heller kit. Painted with acrylic Lifecolors. It was a hard work, but I hope it was worth it. Model shows my interpretation of F-14A number 160318/3-6020, TFB 8 IRIAF during Iran-Iraq War in 1986. This aircraft was one of the most successful "Alicat" in this war. It was still in
  11. Hi Guys, This is my latest completed model the excellent F-5F by AFV Club. This really is a fantastic kit and has lots of detail straight from the box and I only added a few extra bits in the cockpits and replaced the kit seats with resin Martin Baker seats as fitted to iranian F-5's and scratch built the extra canopy breakers which are fitted to the front seats. I really enjoyed building this kit with one exception, the decals! They are very good at shattering and that's about all they are good for. I built this as part on the ongoing F-5 Group Build and here is a link to my build thread:-
  12. Well I've given up trying to resist joining in on this GB and thought I would throw my hat in the ring with an AFV Club 1/48 F-5F that I will build as an aircraft operated by the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force. Iran is probably the most important operator of this classic aircraft and has used every model from the F-5A through to the F-5F and is now producing it's own upgraded versions, in fact Iran (then the Imperial Iranian Air Force) was the first country to operate the aircraft when their F-5A's were delivered in February 1965. The kit I will be using is the by now familiar AFV Club F-
  13. Hi, Promised few days ago and just finished - second one radial Audax, this time with 9-cylinder Bristol, next of my "Hawker Hart Family mass production" - the Hawker Persian Audax. Model was scratch converted and detailed from AZ Hart B4 kit. Markings are following the Profile Publication scheme with small differences based on speculations or photos In Interwar section I tried to discuss confusion I have with details http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234986512-persian-audax-1941-confusion/ - many thanks for most of all John Aero for his comments, whi
  14. Hi, I am doing now Persian Audax, intending to do in WWII markings from short war during Soviet-British invasion of Persia in 1941. The main question is about details of painting scheme. There is classic painting scheme published in Profile publication on Audax (I have both profiles from net, so I hope I can them here): .The same machine is subject of painting scheme in Kora Miidels resin kit: There are important deifferences between them (starting from the blue or sand band on fuselage, position of numbers, wing tips on upper wing etc, shade of blue etc...) The profile on Audax is muc
  15. Hi all, I am calling this finished. It's the old Hasegawa kit that's been re-boxed umpteen times. Generally an ok build, just a few hiccups along the way. I used Hi Decal sheet for the decals which are quite delicate bur worked ok in the main. Seats are from Airwaves and the weapons from my spares box. Thanks for looking! FF
  16. Middle Easterners 1:35 Meng Models Following on from their highly successful and high quality Pick-up Trucks, Meng have released this set of rather handy and topics figures dressed in typical middle-eastern clothing. The set contains four very well sculpted figures, all of which are in multiple parts to improve detail and facilitate moulding, including: Man standing and leaning against "something". Wearing a jacket and knitted hat and sporting a beard Female youth/child carrying a bag of produce on her head with a long smock dress and open-heeled shoes Woman in long
