1/48 AMK Kfir Fighter Jet…A new molding for a Legendary Fighter
I always loved the Mirage and related Kfir jets used by several air forces including the Israeli military. I had not built a 1/48 Delta wing in some time so when the new company AMK released this model it was time to build another. I had no knowledge about AMK at the time so did not know what to expect. After reading a few very positive results on this new release I jumped right in. The reviews were correct and this was a high-tech, modern, and well engineered molding which holds it own as compared to other high end model companies. The fit was great and the surface detail was really nice. It builds OOB into a nice, museum quality scale model. I used an after-market Camo mask to get the 3-tone pattern just right. I built this mostly OOB and no significant improvements or add-ons are needed. It did come with a good assortment of stores but I always build my jets clean with few exceptions. This model sold quickly on a common auction sight. I sell all of my models because I no longer have any room to properly display, or store safely, and it funds my ability to continually build more, which to me is the whole reason I do it. Comments welcomed, hope you enjoy!
