1/48 IAF Kfir C7 - Shalhevet

Recommended Posts

G'day all,

Here's is my latest model. It's the old Esci/Italeri kit (heavily modified). I'm also pleased to announce that it will appear in a future issue of Model Airplane International (MAI). Hope you like it? :thumbsup:

Edited: For pic size

Wow, beautiful finish! I suppose this is the ESCI Mirage, not the ESCI Kfir, which makes it an even greater achievement...

BTW, doea anyone know what is the purpose of all the white tape on the leading edge? Sealing? Reference lines?

Bonehammer - Yes. It is the Italeri kit (repop) of the Mirage IIIE, to be exact. I don't know what those white markings are for, but they look nice on the model.
You used the Eagle Design conversion?
kurnass77 - Yes & no. Only the nose and 'dogtooth'. Everything else was scratch.

Thanks Steve! I'm glad you've been there every step of the way too.

Thanks for the compliment Panos. Yes, this is was difficult conversion. I only used the resin nose and dog tooth leading edges from Eagle Design. The rest of the conversion was scratch.

Nice work, any more pic?
Thanks TF51. I wish I could post more, but the editor from the magazine asked that I only post one pic.

Thanks Qian. Glad you liked the kit. Edited by Cyrus Tan
