Cool Kfir C7- Yaron repaint of Yoav Kfir C2

Now that I have completed Yoav's Mirage 3c
Mirage 3C- Yoav model 1/30 scale


it makes sense to follow up with the Kfir.

Yoav has done a magnificent job on creating the 1/30 scale Kfir C2 and Yaron followed up by modifying the kit and converting it to a C7 version and camouflage scheme . That version includes external load as well as a landing gear set.

It looks like a fun continuation of the Mirage


Both models are available for free download at DGA web site.
DGA Home Page


Stay tuned


Happy 2018


Isaac

Thumbs up Inspiration

Back in 2015, I visited Yoav's place for a mini get together of Israeli builders and designers.
Visit to Israel


On the table were many built models. Yoav's Kfir C2 was built then and was displayed as well as Yaron's in process repaint and modified Kfir C7.

and Yaron's in development Kfir C7

I knew that I would build it some day and now is the time.

You can download the free kit at DGA site:
Index of /Yaron/Kfir
( there are other wonderful models to download on the DGA site as well ).

This model is a huge advance over the Hobby Model Kfir I built.

That model was incorrect and difficult to build and you can look at my build here:
IAF Kfir in 1:33 scale- Hobby Model #25


So now you have two authentic looking, beautifully rendered and designed Kfir versions

Thumbs up Reference

There is alot of material out there regarding the Israel Aircraft Industries ( IAI ) Kfir aircraft.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IAI_Kfir


In addition, specific Kfir C7 walk around pics:
KFIR C-7 Walk Around Page 1


Also lots of books and magazines.
Kfir C7- Yaron repaint of Yoav Kfir C2-img_6068.jpgKfir C7- Yaron repaint of Yoav Kfir C2-img_6069.jpg


The Kfir is really the "kick ass" version of the elegant Mirage aircraft. Bigger engine, more weapon stations, but not as good looking. It is still in service in South America. There are also the long nosed versions out there.

Cool The parts

The rendering of the model is superb. Great coloring, shading and weathering affect.

Many thanks for the reference photos.


You know I like as much information about the models I am about to build. The research of the subject is just as important to me as the build.

Cool Fuselage

The Kfir build is technically identical to the Mirage 3c in that the parts are similar and the design is common. The main difference is a longer nose section and on the back end, the engine exhaust is different.

Here are the sub assemblies

add weight to the nose section ( needed since I'm building the plane on its gear ).

Nose section part 4 is joined.
