  1. Hello Everyone, The MIG-21 Bison (MIG-21-93) is primarily used by the India Air Force and is an upgraded version of the Later Mig-21s. The aircraft has a new radar and integration of modern avionics and weapons. The donor kit is a Trumpeter MIG-21 MF and is converted into a -93/Bison with various changes and scratchbuilt parts. A new Vac Form cockpit was made at home using a clear sheet. The overwing avionics bays were casted in resin from scratchbuilt masters. The spine is also corrected as the Trumpeter spine is too flat on the top side curve. this was a
  2. Hello, I am trying to find images of this particular Indian MiG21 for a reference. A serial number would be a huge help. All I know so far is that it belonged to 37 sqn. All help is appreciated.
  3. So guys just shifted over from this thread. in continuation of my quest to restore Hurricane Mk I P5202/Z7059 depending on which source you believe (although i would be P 5202 which shot down a Me110 on 11.9.40 whilst with 213 Sqn.) I wanted to do a ACSEA marked aircraft but seems not possible?? i want to do it half exposed and unpainted and half covered and painted. I find the main wheel hubs suspiciously like those of the vampire NF 10 parked next to it??
  4. Hi gents, this is latest addition to my IAF collection, the Do 27 "Dror" (sparrow), light utility, training and communication aircraft. This Special Hobby kit belongs to the latest generation of their mainstream kits and it is beatiful - I built it within couple of sessions. This machine belonged to 100. tasejet "The flying camel" and operated over the Sinnai penninsula during the Six-day war in 1967. Cheers Libor

    IAF Pictures

    Hallo Anybody interested in modern aircrafts? So go and have a look. Take time.... The MOST WONDERFUL PICTURES of Israeli Aircrafts Happy modelling
  6. Hallo again Now I will start the F-15 in 1/48. This will be a little longer modelling sequence, since I have many detail sets and accurate weapons for it. Beside that of all, I have so much literature about this a/c and know it very well from my own. I have seen it at the first flights, many combat sorties and on ground in the hangar for maintenance. Also in the museum. Since there are so many wonderful photos available, please use our walk around at the forum. Here you have hundreds of photos I will constantly refer to. It also exists a collection of flying photos from IAF aircrafts. It
  7. Hallo This is my Saraf. Kit from Hasegawa with Aires cockpit. The instruction for this kit is a nightmare. Guess…The wing installation on the left side is actually not possible, without cutting the plastic through. Without my own photos, the outcome would have been a disaster. The cockpit glass was glued after finishing all! The Aires cockpit does not match the Saraf. Detail work had to be done! The decals for the step on the right side is purely wrong. Too short! This is my second helicopter. Happy modelling
  8. Here's the venerable MiG 21 Bis by KP with an Eduard seat and windshield and a modified Aero Bonus Soviet pilot. The Blastpen is card and equipment from some 1/35 spares. This particular aircraft was painted by me in the Sqn way back in 1986. My Pic
  9. Hi folks, this is another quick addition to my IAF collection, the old 'n' good Hasegawa kit built OOB except CMK resin wheels and an ordnance taken from my spares box. The decals for 105.sq. machine from Operation 'Kadesh' comes from DP Casper sheet. Cheers Libor
  10. When building an Israeli P-51D Mustang I noticed that the insignias, the David Star was much further forward on the fuselage compared to insignia's on US, RAF and Swedish P-51D's. And in this position some of those insignias also partly covered the fuelcap on the left side of the fuselage just under the canopy. https://pixels.com/featured/iaf-first-p-51d-mustang-amos-dor.html It's not easy to find pictures on natural metal Israeli P-51D's. Those I have found is from the delivery from Sweden. And those first insignias covered the Swedish insignias.
  11. Hallo again This here is my third Kfir in 1/48. For cutting extra fine resin parts I use the US-cutter. So I can get out every resin part. For sawing I use japaneses saws, which reduce the volume of chips to 20% of the 100% to normal saws, you are used to have or we comonly buy. The first was an Italeri with a conversation set from Isracast several years ago
  12. Hi you all This will become my Kfir C-2. I built it several years ago a C-7with an Italeri kit and a conversion set from Isracast . This was very difficult, to achieve a proper result. This time I build 2 Kfir C-2. The first from AMK and the second from Kinetic. The aftermarket products I bought you may see. Beside this, I have as left over a complete conversion set from Isracast for the C-2 and the fuel tank and pylon set from Isracast. Of course, the book about the Kfir too. My personal linkage to the Kfir is that I had to live with this a/c. Every day over years and months,

    IAF colours

    Hello! RAL 8000 (FS 30215) "Brown" together with RAL 5008 (FS 35053) "Blue" and RAL 7044 (FS 37722) "Grey" is said to be used by IAF first fighters - Avia199, Spitfire Mk. IXe and P-51D Mustang by Sky Decals. So what is RAL 8000? Brown, yellow or... ? Is there any Humbrol equalent to RAL 8000? Or Tamiya? Cheers / André
  14. Hallo again I will start an F-4E Kurnas in 1/48 from Hasegawa. The kit as shown in the photo. My aircraft will be F-4E Kurnas from Hammer squadron #134. Carrying the Popeye air/surface guided missile with data link pod. The a/c will have Hebrew stenciling. It is from the year 1987/1988. My detail sets are very accurate and I hope that this kit will be despite the age still worth to build. By the way: You get soon access to walk around also from the Kurnas If you built alre
  15. Hallo again This is my Zukit from the IAF in 1/48. The kit was FM. The only Fouga Magister to get. The kit was a horror experience and it took me a half year with breaks of course. Long periods of thinking how to proceed or to the garbage? We saw the original in Israel, in the sky and on the ground. Happy modelling
  16. Hallo again The Hermes 450 is my first UAV. I have seen it flying many times. In addition, the resin kit from Isracast was nice to build. This model I build actually for the big airshow in Austria, the Airpower some years ago. IPMS Austria was asked by the organization to make an exhibition. In these days, Austrian UNO Forces spent their last days at the Golan. Happy modelling
  17. F-16 IDF Introduction My intention was to represent the F-16 of the Israeli Air Force with the entire development of the F-16 A, (Netz) via the F-16 C (Barak), F-16 D (Barak) to the F-16 I (Sufa) faithfully. I had the chance to see the F-16 A and the F-16 I at Hatzerim AFB very closely, in flight I saw all variants of F-16 which are presently in IAF service. F-16A Netz I built the F-16 A Netz Nr. 234 from the Flying Dragon squadron. The kit in 1/48 is from Italieri. Additional parts are from Eduard (Cockpit, ladder the FOD), Exhaust nozzle f
  18. Hi folks, this is latest addition to my IAF collection. Started a couple of years ago and then put aside, but with the great GWH kit being now available I thought I had to quickly finish it, otherwise I will never find motivation to do so... I used partly the Eduard etched for the F-15E, Skunkmodels IDF weapon set (4 x RAFEAL SPICE bombs), Eduard's AIM-9L and HGW Hebrew RBF set. The inlet FOD's were scratch built from Milliput. Painted with Gunze Aqueous freehand trying to make as tight demarcations as my Iwata was able to work out. I kept the airframe dirty as visible o
  19. Hello, Here is my IAI Nesher “61” 5 in IAF No. 113 “Hornet” Squadron during late ‘70s. The Nesher was the Israeli version of the French Dassault Mirage 5 multirole fighter. The “61” was the personal Nesher of IAF’s ace Giora Epstein. KIT The model is based on Italeri Mirage IIIE/R in 1/32nd scale. This kit is good in size and shapes. Details are generally good but sometimes are a bit poor especially panel lines due the shared molding with the IIIC kit. CONSTRUCTION To convert the IIIE kit into a IAI Nesher the main change I had to ch
  20. Hi Guys, I have got two models in the stash. Both are 1/48 Academy kits( F-15E &F15I). As I have understand is the F-15E more a D version than a E. So for this Groups Build I will build the E into a D. I have got a Blackbox cockpit for a E, b ut that will be no problem as it was intended for the revell kit and they say you use the instrument panels from that kit. I will have a look if I can find a reasonall priced eduard etch set. otherwise I will use the kit parts. As I have got a Cutting edge decal sheet for Israeli F-15's I will use these. O, if you thi
  21. Hi fellow modellers, that's my take on the IAF Sufa built from Hasegawa kit. As the base kit is rather ascetic as far as the underwing stores go, I went for Skunkmodels Workshop IAF Weapons set which sourced out the Pythons 4 and Delillah 2. The Litening II and Lantirn pods came from Hasegawa weapon set no.12, while the AIM-120's and fuel tanks are from the kit. The kit was further enhanced with Aires inlet ducting, wheel bays, the exhaust pipe and Eduard Zoom etched. All in all not a cheap affair, but I enjoyed the build as the kit went together without problems. It was paint
  22. I’m currently on a bit of a small model kick and have just taken delivery of the Revell UH-60 A in 1:100. While looking for pictures on wiki I saw the IAF version and thought that looks quite snazzy and certainly less dull than NATO olive all over. So knowing next to nothing about military vehicles in general and absolutely nothing about IAF vehicles I turn to the collective here – can I build up the Revell version oob and just paint it up in the IAF livery or does the kit need work? It’s 1:100 so I don’t need to go to the detail required of a 1:35, but do I need to change load outs etc?
  23. Hello gang, Still in my Mirage sery, this one is the Eduard kit. It's an harder built than the Hobby Boss kit of my last effort, fit is ranging from bad to terrible, especially around the windshield area. Another noticeable flaw of the kit is that it's very long legged. Measurements were taken on a museum machine, with no engine, hence the oleo were fully extended. I had to cut a good 3,5 mm from the main legs and close the angle of the front LG wheel arm. Still, the plan is still having a high sit, with rear-up stance. Paints are Gunze acryls, which a re a bit too light,
  24. 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.
  25. 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
