One coffee! The bill…
Here is Hasegawa's 1/48 scale F-16B converted to an Israeli F-16I Sufa.
I used the ACES II seats from Aires, but slightly modified to look like the Israeli version. Some scratch built parts were added to the consoles.
PE parts and scratch parts were used to upgrade the landing gear legs.
The resin conversion (upper part of the fuselage) was quite difficult to place and needed some putty. (I usde Tamiya putty).
The Laser Targeting Pod is from Isracast and Conformal Fuel Tanks are from Cutting Edge.
The shape of the plane makes the painting challenging.
The fuel tanks are from the Hasegawa box, but I will eventually replace them with the impressive 600 gallons tanks used by the Israeli air force.
The Delilah missiles are made by Isracast, the Python IV by Paragon Designs.
