    After 30+ years in modeling, I've just about gotten out of the hobby in favor of warbird photography and writing. Takes up less space.

  1. Nice coverage of the FSD jets for F-16 "The Early Years, Part II". 🙂
  2. It'd be cool if this could spawn a new tool YF-16 kit, eh? Along with a YF-17 kit. Chappie
  3. IM......PRESSIVE. Well done. A lot of work I'm not sure I'd want to do, but this is very well done. Chappie
  4. Wow this is an amazing build. I've been on hiatus from the hobby for quite a while, but I still have a stash and lurk around here once I while. With this new sheet with the TOP GUN movie jets, I've thought about doing an airborne display, but had no idea what it took to properly display an F-14A in flight. Gotta keep on eye on this one. Chappie
  5. Okay, just curious. In watching those early videos at the beginning of the thread, there are all kinds of weapons options on '567- GBU-10s, AIM-7s, etc. Cool cool stuff. I've only got one Monogram kit, so I'm gonna have to hit up eBay to see if I can get a couple more before they are all snapped up! LOL!
  6. I looked at a couple of the YouTube videos of #1 flight testing. Are my eyes deceiving me or were the main gear doors split as well for a while like the nose gear door? Chappie
  7. Kursad- "First" set of profiles? There are more?!
  8. Thanks CAG. I hadn't been on here in a while and when I posted the first picture I couldn't see it.
  9. Kursad, I've been out of the hobby for a while but still maintain a stash that I'll get to someday. I also want to build a Viper collection to represent each Block and country. After seeing the F-15 Early Years sheet I was hoping an F-16 would follow. Though some are not early F-16s, I always thought a sheet of the "th" F-16s would be cool- 1,500th F-16, 2,000th...etc. Did I send you reference photos years ago Kursad? I built YF-16 No. 1 15 or so years ago...custom SIIIS seat and a modified resin cockpit. Oh...and exhaust can from a Hasegawa kit. Chappi
  10. Placed an order for the Part 1 sheet because I've got two Kiwi A-12 conversions. Gonna build the prototype and the M-21. BTW Kursad- did you see my email with early F-16 photos? I like this "Early" series and would love to help with an F-16 sheet. Chappie
  11. Good day everyone. I was a regular on ARC for a long time, but I put modeling aside in 2007 to try my hand at warbird journalism. After dozens of articles, one book, and lots for flights with and in some incredible warbirds, a hobby has turned into a part-time job, but I am dipping my toe....just a little..back into modeling and looking to build a 1/48th F-16 collection- one of each Block and one from each country. In the last few weeks I've put together the list of kits and decals I need and have just about obtained them all, except one...... I have not been able to locate a co
  12. Fantastic news Kursad. Will surely grab these for future use. Chappie
  13. Alrighty. I will certainly purchase a sheet when they are ready. Thanks!
  14. Hello Kursad! Long time! I've bene out of modeling for about 7 years, but I still have a 32 kits stash that I will get to someday. Two of those kits are 48th SR-71s which have two A-12 conversions and an old Eagles Talon D-12. I see the last post here is July, are these decals out yet? Chappie
