  1. IAI Kfir TC.2. Provision was made for the second seat by removing a fuel tank and moving some avionics to the nose. The nose is longer and canted down for a better pilot view. Full combat capability was retained. Pics thanks to Dov.
  2. IAI Kfir C2/C7 1:72 AvantGarde Model Kits The Kfir (lion cub) is an Israeli development based on the Mirage 5, and can trace it roots back to the Mirage IIIC adapted for Israeli use successfully as a Mach 2 all-weather interceptor with success, but they felt it lacked the loiter time that would be needed if a ground-attack role was to be added its task list. As a result of an arms embargo, Israel built the Nesher, which was then improved further and was suitably different to be renamed as the Kfir. It entered service in 1975, and was almost immediately superseded in the air superi
  3. G'day all, The AMK has recently come available at my LHS. Now to build a modern Colombian Kfir C10 I need the conversion made by Wingman Models. Does any of you have an idea if this would fit on the AMK nose? Has one of you maybe both the Kinetic C7 kit and the AMK so that a comparison of the diameter of the nose can be made? Thanks! Evert
  4. IAI Kfir C2/C7 Kinetic Models 1:48 History The Israel Aircraft Industries Kfir ("Lion Cub") is an Israeli-built all-weather, multirole combat aircraft based on a modified French Dassault Mirage 5 airframe, with Israeli avionics and an Israeli-made version of the General Electric J79 turbojet engine. Two powerplants were initially selected for trials, the General Electric J79 turbojet and the Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan. In the end, the J79 was selected, not least because it was the same engine used on the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, which the Israelis began to acquire from the U
  5. Kfir C2 & C7 update sets & masks 1:72 Eduard - For AMK Kit The AMK kit is new to the market and Eduard are as usual quick with the sets. As you can build a C2 or C7 from the kit Eduard have released two sets depending on which version you will build. Both sets have a nickel coated fret and a brass fret in the packet. Parts included are coloured instrument panels, seat belts and all the side panels. New seat cushions are included and firing handles for the ejection seat. Canopy frames with mirrors and sills are provided. For the airframe new wheel w
  6. Hello everyone. This is one of the three models I've done since my last WIP. I really like this jet because it shows how Israel was so willing to have jets that they made them themselves. The body was painted with Mr Color Lacquer paints well diluted and mixed with retarder. The camouflage was painted with the assistance of liquid latex. I only had a few mistakes, most noticeably the left number decal on the fin and a few few bubbles on the bottom. The front antennae broke in two parts when the model slid off my hand while holding it too gently w/o gloves.

  10. Here is a slightly different WIP pic set (pic heavy). For the recent Israeli IPMS Annual Show, a friend of mine and me built a quartet of IAI built deltas. I got stuck with the Kfir C1, and C2, whereas the other pair of Nesher and Kfir C7 were built by a friend of mine. As it turned out, the baseline Kfirs were Kinetic kits, whereas the early ones were Wingmans. As I usually have more than one project on the go I decided to build these two in parallel. Reasoning that same time in build process ends with the double the result. Both kits are well known, and I will point out some of my remarks
  11. Openly presenting in ARC forums the Wingman Models philosophy and how they intend to improve their products, the brand co-owner, Andreas Klein, announced a IAI two seats Kfir 1/48th conversion set, so most probably for the TC.2 & TC.7/.10.

  12. I pulled this out of the stash with the intention of slapping it together in a week, but that didn't quite happen. This is a pretty bad kit and thankfully I only spend $2 on it. The canopy, air intakes and wings have less than great fit and required a fair bit of attention and still aren't prefect, but they're good enough. This was the F-21 Lion boxing, however the decals were shot so I turned it into an Israeli Kfir C-1. Decals were left over from another kit and I added, drop tanks, bombs, bomb rack and sidewinders out of the spares box, along with a pilot. It'll be a decent 4fter model
  13. Hello Fellow Modelers, I leave you some photos of one of my latest Work, the 1/48 Kfir C-2 from kinetic I hope you like it Best Regards, Pedro Matos
  14. Hi, A new cockpit set is available: SBS Model 48043 1/48 IAI Kfir C2 cockpit set for Kinetic kit Set contains MB 6. ejection seat for C2 version. C7 with MB 10 seat will follow soon! Further info: www.sbsmodel.com Best regards, Csaba
  15. This is my first build for this GB, the Hasegawa 1/72 Kfir C2. Firstly, proving that this kit cost less than a tenner... When it was originally released, it cost £1.49. When I bought it, a couple of months ago, it cost me £3.50 from evilbay. According to the seller, the box is damaged. Doesn't look very damaged to me. More like "discoloured". Maybe it was so cheap because the box is no use to a kit collector. Here are the sprues. I first built this kit when it was originally released in the late 70s, when I probably did pay £1.49 for it. This will be a pure nostalgia b
  16. The latest batch of Kinetic 1/48 kits has arrived in the UK. They are the following F-5B Tiger II, Kfir C1/F-21, Fouga Magister and EA-6B Prowler. If anyone is interested, let me know. thanks Mike
  17. Turned Brass Aircraft Barrels/Probes 1:48 Master Models We've received another batch of these superb items for Mast Models. Their reputation continues to grow with some of the best turned components you can buy. They are all packaged in the standard small flat packs with card headers which help protect the components. Inside the parts are all in separate bags with an overturned flap to keep them from falling out, although the probes are so sharp I'm surprised the hadn't pierced their way through. The Kfir set, designed for the Kinetic kits, has two very finely turned probes includ
  18. IAI Kfir Exhaust Nozzle (4591) 1:48 Aires The set comes in a blown plastic box on a cardboard sleeve. The parts are protected from bouncing around and breaking by a thick foam pad. The kit exhaust is pretty good on its own but with the single piece moulding Kinetic went for it does make the painting of the exhaust and rear section of the engine rather difficult. With this set this is alleviated by having all the sections separate allowing them to be painted before fitting together. Each of the three resin parts are beautifully moulded and with their attachments to the casting blocks
  19. Just finished! This is the lovely Kinetic Kfir, even when the kit has some problems I love it a lot, and I'll build many more in the future, good one Kinetic!!!.
