IAI Kfir C7 1/48 AMK
Finally, after so many models made on commission, I managed to produce something for myself. A project that started without too many ambitions, carried out partially at home and partially on a site where I temporary live for work on a fairly continuous basis, where I equipped myself with a mini compressor and a limited set of tools. Build was almost OOB accessories and aftermarket at a minimum, focusing everything on the capturing the three-tone desert camouflage, typical of some Israeli aircraft, which fit perfectly the sleek lines of the Middle Eastern cousin of the Mirage. Decal's use was cut to the minimum. National ensigne, walkaway, red contour of air brake, white segment, were airbrushed, like the unit simbol and the Israeli flag on the back wall of the base.
