Hey ya'll, didnt quite notice if this was covered before or not...but are there any kits out there for the -16I or -15I or any other Israeli modified aircraft, I love their stuff with paint schemes and what they do with them...would look good in anyone's collections...

hi ghettobird,

I guess for F-16I, the nearest we have and much anticipated is the IsraDecal conversion kit. See a thread on ARC here.

For the F-15I, Cutting Edge Modelworks has the conversion kit. Available both in 1/48 and 1/32.You might want to go with the IsraDecal decal sheet.

Hope this helps,

The problem with all that is, they're so new, in the case of the F-16I, there's not markings for it yet. Everyone's so eager to build these, by the time they finish one, they'll have different, front line configurations. But hey, if you wanna do a FF, or delivery bird....by all means...;)

For the F-16I you can use normal Negev Squadron's markings, and for the F-15I normal 69th Squadron :)

Not quite what I meant... I meant pics of the F-16I with the markings applied.

As I said, the F-16I carries no other\special marking from older F-16A/B's of the Negen Squadron... (Unless it's not from the Negev Squadron :wink: )

Right, but it's always good to have good ref pics. My point is, many people are so jazzed about the aircraft, they all wanna build it, but never do, until much later. By that time, the aircraft are already in squadron service, and we know exactly what they look like. I'd just rather wait, dontcha think?

hello every body,
there is a conversion kit from isradecl or "isracast" as it writen on the box.
it is 1:48 scale and very very acurate and highly detailed. it's including: wide mouth intake, accurate spine and all the bumps and antenas.
in israel it cost 200 nis = 45$.
try connecting with raanan weis at isradecl.com

you can also build f 16 i with marking of the 'bat" squadron wich will be the next sufa squadron.

i will try to add some pictures of the builded model kit later.

hi netz, cool build!!

Is the tail number and formation insignia fictitious? It is a pity, you chose not to use the 600 , (LITENING III?) and Python5. Very nice build nonetheless. :wink:

cheers,

netz, It's a beautiful model!

Pumpkin, the number is fictitious, the squadron isn't. This is the insigina of the "Ha-atalef Squadron" ("The Bat Squadron"), which is the next Sufa squadron (It's an ex-F-4 Phantom squad.).

BTW, a scoop for any Sufa modeler:
In a chat on the official AF website with the commander of the Negev Squad., the first Sufa squadron, it was revealed that on the near future a special marking is going to be painted on the fins of most or all the Sufa's. Keep your eyes open :wink:

thank you for the replys but i can't take the cradit.
the model was build by raana weis espcialy for the "bat" squadron commander for its reopening. i'm sorry i forgot to write it in my original massege. raanan had made also beutiful 600 gallon fuel in 1:48 made out of resin.
about the nomber on the tail i can't reply but a short scouting on the net will revill the connection. like wise is the no. on the first f16i - 253.

i added 4 more pics this plane is one ugly beast with all of its bumps.
