Hi all! Here is my 1/48 AMK Kfir C7, from the Arava Guardians Squadron, circa 1990. I used Master Metal Pitot and Aires seat, and the decals were OOB. The decals were actually quite nice, I had no issues with them at all. The kit really fits nicely, and considering I just built the Tamiya Tomcat previously, saying that means something. It is not in the same league as the Tamiya Tomcat as far as fitment is concerned, but everything fit great except the nose assembly to the forward fuselage. There was a step on both sides that I had to deal with. I am very happy with how it turned out, but there are a couple of things that I messed up. First, the green is too dark. I lightened the green I used, but I should have lightened it more. Probably should have been a 60/40 green/white mix. The other is I forgot to add the mirrors to the canopy. I could go back and add them, but that will be pretty difficult at this point. If it starts to bug me too much I will do it. Here is what I used on this build: Kit: 1/48 AMK IAI Kfir C2/C7 Decals: OOB Aftermarket: Master Metal Pitot, Aires MB Mk.10 Ejection Seat Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya White Liquid Primer (for pre-shade stippling), Gunze Aqueous H308 FS 36375 Light Ghost Gray (underside), Gunze Aqueous H310 FS 30219 Brown, Gunze Aqueous H312 FS 34227 Light Green, Gunze Aqueous H313 FS 33531 Sand, Tamiya smoke (post shading), and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Burnt iron, and Jet Exhaust. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. MIG Deep Brown for panel washes. On to the pics! I hope you enjoy!
