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
