I am very keen on anything in Israeli markings so count me in. I may even splash out on a 1/32 F-14A and some after market decals.

Don't think the Israeli's used them beany. Did you mean the F-15?

The IAF didn't use the F-14A, although they did consider it. I think they found it far too much aircraft for their needs and went with the F-15/F-16 instead. However they might well have had a trials aircraft, and if you can find a photo of one in IAF marking then I’ll allow it.


Ok then - apologies for the gap in getting this moving. So far we have 9 people with some interest, and 1 probably. So far we have:

1. Sir T (Me)
2. Planecrazyman1 (Craig)
3. Fredk (Fred)
4. PaulBradley (Paul)
5. Jissel (Jeff)
6. iggie
7. Old_Tonto
8. MarkyM601
9. Beany

Probable: Gregers (Greg)

I think the consensus would be for a IDF GB rather than a IAF GB, which is fine by me – and I would propose a start date of 28th May for ??? weeks.

Another thought I had however, As the IDF/IAF was formed on the 28th May 1948 – would we be better to do a 70th anniversary build next year (2018)?

Cheers

Stuart

Hi Chuck - that would look ace.

I think it may well be worth doing this in 2018, as then it would be the 70th birthday of the IDF.
