    1/48 Tamiya F-16N

    Started the weekend off with some bench time last night. I installed the seat and IP coaming installed. Here are a couple shots the cockpit. The canopy was glued on, seams filled in with some Mr. Surfacer, and masked off. A coat of primer to find missed cleanups plus using water based acrylics I've experienced better adhesion. Once the cleanups were taken care of the first color was laid down. Hopefully, I'll have time to get both colors down over the weekend.

    Awesome, thanks Jake!
  6. What-Ifs don’t interest me, so I’ll be passing on this one. Yes, I’m very surprised at the lack of participation and activity in the Topgun GB.

    1/48 Tamiya F-16N

    Quick weekend update. I have the landing gear pretty much completed. I wasn't aware the F-16N used black main wheels until the instructions indicated so and looking on the web. I think they look cool in black. I was anxious to get the Bombshell Brew paints down on the plastic, so I laid down the colors on the horizontal stabs. I'm using their FS30400 Tan and FS 30140 Dark Earth. The colors look good to my eye, but what do I know. Next for the build will be getting the canopy prepped for attachment then the build ready for the paint shop. Mike

    Coming along nicely. Looking forward to seeing the camo applied. And some fantastic Harrier builds you've done! Mike
  9. Sadden to hear of his passing.

    1/48 Tamiya F-16N

    I was able to sneak in sometime at the bench while the family was visiting over the holiday. The major components have been attached. For the most part it went together well; however, I do have a couple of steps at the nose cone/fuselage connection that I need to address. Luckily, they are on the bottom, so I won't sweat losing some panel lines/details. Thanks for looking in on the build. Mike
  11. Yes, I have them. PM me your address. Mike
  12. Let me dig through my leftover decals, I may have them. Mike

    Airbrushing with Future

    Never had success with Future, undoubtedly operator error. X-22 with MCLT has been idiot proof for me.
