Help needed to ID an ejection seat

Recommended Posts

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.

Iranian F-5s at some point received an MB Q7 seat, similar to that used on many F-104s. The seat in the picture show several features of this seat family so I'd say this is what is trying to represent

Hello,

 

This pic could help you with detailing the top of the seat.
