Yoav's Mystere IV IAF 1:48

I have an old Mystere IV from the IAF magazine but Yoav's is so much better that I wanted to build it - so here I am.
The fuselage is almost done and the canons cockpit compartment and front splitter are next.

MD 454 Mystere IV Kadesh operation 1956

In 1955 Egypt signed on a very large weapon deal with the Czech republic. The deal was including 200 jets of about 150 mig 15 bis and 30 IL -28 bombers and even small number of mig 17's.
Israel needed an answer to this threat and it was the French Mystere IVa which was the right plane at the right time. At the beginning of 1956 Israeli pilots and ground crews came to France to learn the new fighter. After that the planes were transferred by flight to Israel with a stop in south Italy for refueling. The first 4 mysters arrived at Hatzur base and dived over the spectators below at supersonic speed - this was the first sonic bang in Israel !
Soon many bangs were heard in Israel. Some 60 were bought and two squadrons were formed.
At the end of October 1956 Operation Kadesh started and Israel in a brilliant move occupied
the Sinai peninsula from the Egyptian army in less then a week ! Israel was coordinated with Great Britain and France that started Operation Mooskatier at the same time to capture Suez canal from the Egyptians.
The Israeli pilots gave close air support to the ground forces and while the Ouragan proved
very effective against ground targets the Mystere IV had some 8 victories against Egyptian planes including 3 mig 15 , one mig 17 and 4 vampires.
The Mystere IV was crowned by the name " the fighter of Kadesh " - rightly.

MD 454 Mysrere IV build diary 1:48 vs IAF magazine Mystere 1:48

The two reprsent the big changes that followed during the decades backwards. The Mystere of the IAF magazine was released first in 1958 in magazine 43 -44 when Israel was 10 years old nation.
We can see covered canopy and lines of plane more or less fine after correcting the tail shape.
Not much details are covering the fuselage and body panels.
Yoav did an excellent job in his Myster IV model including a relatively not too complex model but with high detaling including a full cocpit with all the instruments ejection seat front intake design and very nice implementation of the 30 mm Deffa excellent french canons not to speak about panels detailing and color scheme of Six day war which was brown - blue.
Yoav Mystere is therfore an example for a model that looks good without being over comlicated.
Some imges of the two side by side.

Some progress with the Mystere. The small body parts the parachute housing and dorsal spine were mounted. The ejection seat and canopy will finish the Myster IV model.

MD 454 Mystere IV vs F-86F Sabre

The F-86 Sabre is considered one of best american fighters shooting down more than 800 Korean mig 15's while loosing less than 100 - a kill ratio of 1: 8 ! This high ratio was achieved
due to the better experience of the american pilots that many of them were WW2 veterans.
The Sabre had some advantages over the mig 15 - it had slightly higher speed and could dive
faster but the mig could climb faster had higher service ceiling along with better guns of two NR 23mm and one 37mm against 6 x 0.5 machine guns of the Sabre.
The Sabre evolved from the A series to E and F models and the final H model with the J73 engine instead of the standard J47.
The mystere IIC first flew in 1951 and the mystere IV in 1952. They entered service in 1954-55
time frame or five long years after the Sabre. We can say roughly that the first F-86A can be compared with the mystere IIC and the E and F can be compared with the mystere IV A.
While some 10000 Sabres of all kinds were produced only 150 mystere IIc and 420 mystere IV
were produced or a ratio of 17 to 1. The two types fought one against the other in the Indo-Pakistani war of 1965 .

MD 454 Mystere IV vs F-86F Sabre

In the mid 1950's Israel tried to get jets from any nation that was willing to sell any. In thier search they even reached Sweden and tested the Saab 29 Tunnan but Sweden refused to sell. With Canada a deal of 24 Mk 6 Canadian Sabres with Oranda 14 engines was signed but USA blocked it.Only the French were willing to sell the Mystere IV to Israel and 60 were sold to form two big squadrons.Soon daily supersonic bangs were heard over Israel skys. That leave us with the big question - which one of the two is better.
The Sabre was first to fly in 1950 as E model and the Mystere IV in 1952. In a way the Mystere was a touch more advanced - 38 deg swept wing vs 35 deg in the Sabre. In the Mystere main wings and tail are canted lower down aroud 1.5 deg and in the Sabre upwards. The Mystere is 12.9 m long while Sabre 11.4 m. Wing span 11.2 and 11.8 - first win to Sabre. Engines 3.5 ton thrust vs 2.7 ton for Sabre.
Speed 1120 kph vs 1090 for Sabre at low level.
Breaking Sound barrier Mystere in 4 deg dive - Sabre much steeper .
Armament 30 mm canons vs 6x 0.5 guns or 4x20 mm for the Sabre. Ceiling 48000 feet vs 45000 feet for Sabre. Radar range support for guns in both.
The Mystere kills in the IAF includes : 3 mig 15 4 Vampires 4 mig 17 and 1 Hunter.
Of course the Sabre shootdown more planes due to participating in more conflicts as the Formosa
and Indo - Pakistan theaters .
Had the Mystere equiped with Avon engine it was way better than the Sabre.
