Hi Romain,

 

nice to see you plugging along on the beast. Looks great, especially the black basing.

 

I've recently picked up my Foxbat again and immediately remembered why I put it back in the box 1,5 years ago. It fights me in ever step.

Currently I'm really thinking of taking the ICM kit, the CWS nose plus some scratch modification to get another PD. My hope is that the better buildability of the ICM kit gives me a more pleasant experience (won't touch another KH Foxbat for sure).

 

One question regarding your build. Didn't all Iraqi machines have the larger wing fences with the integrated flare dispensers? I'm asking because you've installed the standard ones which are in the kit (another goof of KH as basically all export machines had them, except the Algerian ones and older exported P's).

 

Cheers Markus

 

 

Halo Markus,

Converting an ICM foxbat into a PD should be doable!

the CWS nose provide the whole front fuselage. with some work it must be adaptable to KH fuselage.

Pay attention to the lenght of the wings. Not he same between an interceptor and R versions.

You will need the barracuda exhausts too.

 

 

 

About the chaff dispenser on the wing, I missed this point during the build.

I will attempt to correct it using quickboost dispensers for Su22. they will need to be modified though.

Thanks  Thommo.

Pretty basic stuff:

-canon 1300d with tripod.

-Manual settings with f29 aperture.

- exposure time set to get good exposition (cursor on 0)

-Self timer 2 seconds.

-Iso 100.

-2 powerfull lights with cold temperature.

 

 

Cheers!

HI guys!

 

Some updates on the Foxbat.

On Iraki Foxbat, upper wing fences are replaced by chaff/flare dispensers. Because it was too late when I knew it, I had to remove those parts.

Using reference pictures and plasticard, I scratched the dispensers. Cartridges are are cut from a quickboost set.

Some sanding is needed to match the wing curve.

After some scribing work:

Next  I will carry on with painting those parts.

And I will be able to start decaling using begemot sheets.

 

 

Cheers
