  1. Thanks a lot for your kind comments guys...! The nose drop fix is included on my in progress topic, check it on my first post. 31Tiger thanks for your comments. I didn't knew that BAF F-16s don't have ram plates there.. I also thing you are right for the hmcs sensor... Tape2 software installed after 2005...? Thanks again!!!
  2. After a loooong time (about 2 years) i finally manage to finish this model... Too little space on my new house, and too little time for modelling. :( My in-progress posts are here: http://s362974870.onlinehome.us/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=212733&st=0&p=2019368entry2019368 Sorry for the incompleted in-progress... The F-16AM finished on his base. I'm also thinking to load 2 AMRAAMs on the Tips cause they are too.. empty...! Thanks for your time gentlemen... :) Panos
  3. Very nice build Pompeo!!!
  4. I totally agree. I thing they are the best Papa Winders, -in 1/48 scale! Italeri F-16C has good Papa's also. Try them!
  5. Dear friend tobiK. The HAF RF-4E's are repainted by H.A.I. after their 3rd stage maintenance. Common fact is that every aircraft inserted for maintenance, painted after that, with it's current cammo again. For instance, if a "Lizard" (Norm 83A) cammo inserted for maintenance, after it will be painted again with the Norm 83A one. Stencils are painted again (in english!) with light gray colour, Here is a photo of the ex-luftwaffe t/n "7495" "fresh"-painted by Hellenic Aerospace Industry. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Greece---Ai...fc1f948ed0dfae6 Yeap, i worried also for the same reason
  6. Very nice starfighter jerrymic!!! Loved it!!
  7. Interesting project! H.A.F. RF-4E Phantoms have the S.E.A. and Norm 83 cammo with some "touch ups" on the black green with matt black. This makes the whole painting seem extreme weathered, great opportunity for lots of dirt and weathering on your model's cammo! Are these "Three Star Decals"? If yes, they are very difficult to handle , cause they are homemade as you already know. Lots of future use, is the key of success... Wish you a good start!
  8. In the end, no one will believe that this, was an Italeri's model kit. Excellent scratchbuild!
  9. Thanks a lot for your comment Jake! I 've seen them on a haf block 52 and i thought MLU have them also after their upgrade! Thanks a lot for the heads up!
  10. Wow! Great job there with the masking tape!!!
  11. So, new Progress...! Τhe Strengnething plates on their places on the fuselage. They are copys from the original Tamiya's Detail Up Parts set to aluminium foil from nescafe pack. Cockpit: Added some wirings and the electrical motor of the canopy. Nose: The nose fixed after lots of dryfits, puttying and again puttying!! The most difficult part of the construction. Primer: After i primered the lower surfaces with the Mr Hobby Mr Surfacer 1000 (Code B505) I unfortunately had some oversprays on the cockpit, but fortunately on the upper parts such as hud etc, and can be easily fix

  15. WOW....!!!!!!!!!! Great job on the Mig!!!!

  17. Update here with the exchast of the F100-PW220 Engine. Here are all the parts painted except from the flame holder of the Afterburner The engine's Turbine. Painted silver with citadel and with black pastel to replicate the high temperature that blades are operating. The exchast pipe is painted with the Humbrol Matt 28 (Camouflage Gray) which is a colour that matches a lot to the real one exchast. After that with black pastel i made the burner's heated areas. The last part of the engine before the exhast nozzle (Ring) is painted with citadel's silver and after that i put the Tamiya's
  18. Not a very interesting progress but the model started to seem like a plane... The Upper Surface and the lower one... I used a lot of putty to fill the gaps that the Kinetic F-16 had. Note the fixed nose on the model. (The kit's one is "hanged" down...") From Coffee's aluminium cap i scratched the Wing's Strengnething Plates.(Falcon UP structural Upgrade) And i apply them after scribing and bolting... ...so in the L/H Wing as far as in the R/H Wing. Here are the Strengnething plates position in a Block 25, but there are the same as in a Block 15 MLU. (Source: Afterburner De
