G.W.H. 1/48 F-15B "Baz" IDF

At some stage during their long service in the IDF, the F-15s showed heavy signs of weathering. I believe that now, the surviving airframes are immaculate if not almost entirely revised. GWHs 1/48 model is very good and was also revised [...]

Kinetic 1/48 Fouga CM.170 Magister, IDF Tzukit

The French Fouga Magister was licensed for production in Israel and entered the IDF service by 1960 in the name Tzukit. Its main role was in the flying school, but also had an important operational role during the 1967 Six Days War. As an [...]

Hasegawa 1/48 AH 64D IDF, Guardian Angel "Saraf"

Haseagawa's 1/48 AH 64 variants kit boasts with fine details and appears to be accurate in dimensions. However, the IDF's Guardian Angel does not cover all the changes and additions made in the attack helicopter. In particular, the [...]

Roden 1/32 Stearman PT-17 Kaydet IDF

The Stearman was a trainer in the early days of the IDF. The iconic aircraft received several schemes during its decade long service. I chose two of the more common schemes while in service. Roden's Stearman is a most problematic build. [...]

Hasegawa 1/48 F-4E Phantom IDF

Although showing its age, Hasegawa's 1/48 F-4E model looks like the real aircraft when completed. It has many shortfalls but, the relatively low part number count allows the builder to get to the painting stage quickly. In this model, I [...]

Roden 1/48 IDF OV-1D Mohawk

The two Mohawk aircraft that served in the IDF endured less than 8 years in service before being returned to the US. Both particular aircraft are displayed in aviation museums. Roden's Mohawk is a difficult kit to build. It requires [...]

Special Hobby, Israel Mirage 3C in 1/72

The most handsome jet 🙂 Special Hobby's Mirage 3C in 1/72. Another quick and fun project to build - the model is very accurate, very detailed and with wide variety of armaments. The decals are too thin, in my opinion, and tend to tear [...]

Hasegawa 1/72 E-2C Hawkeye IDF

A gem by Hasegawa sporting IDF color scheme. Decals by Isradecal.

Tamiya 1/48 F-35A IDF "Adir"

Tamiya's F-35A is a complex and delightful build. Engineering is good like you may expect from Tamiya. The fit of parts is tight and you may need to exert pressure on some joints to avoid the application of putty. The model was purchased [...]

M3 Scout Car, IDF, 1/35

Greetings to all forum members. Today I want to show you the last military vehicle I could finish. It is a M3 Scout Car from HobbyBoss in 1/35 scale. It is a kit known to all. It has a quite correct detailing, with a very good fitting of [...]
