Finally, here it is: 1/144 Israeli Air Force HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) Kit by Noy's Miniatures
We've released a unique, VERY limited edition mixed-media kit in 1/144 scale, representing the typical HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) in use for many years now by the Israeli Air Force.
The kit includes 12 resin parts, 4 PE parts, a full-color tarmac print and full-color assembly instructions. It enables the modelers to build various sized HAS dioramas, according to their preferences and is designed to show a partial area of the structure's inside, as well as the external vicinity.
In order to build the version depicted on the kit's box, additional items (i.e. styrene sheets, round styrene rods, styrene strips) are needed. These items' details are specified on the kit's box and in the instructions. Yellow desert sand representation for covering the HAS roof is needed as well (not included).
During its long period of service, this HAS housed many IDF/AF aircraft types, so nice dioramas can be built with KFIRs, A-4s, F-4s, F-15s, F-16s and other types. It is also used for housing foreign machines deployed to Israel for international air exercises, a fact that opens further display options for modelers. We recommend adding some ground equipment and any other enhancements the modelers see fit. The Sky's the Limit!
Photos depict the 1/72 version. Details of both versions (1/72 & 1/144) are identical.
Consumer Price: $43 USD
