F-16D progress (1/48 Has)

Recommended Posts

Nice two seater, like the wheell bays! But anyway I think that you should made dirt around gun with an airbrush, this looks odd... :(

The staining may look odd, but from what I was told, the greoundcrew in the Royal Norwegian Air Force were tasked with cleaning off the residue with a rag soaked in jet fuel, and I am sure this just added to the mess before it gets better. So, odd it may look, but perhaps not totally unreal. However, to my mind , the nose seems to be a little upturned? Still, the level of detailing and craft is very high.

The gun blast stains were made using Tamiya weathering sticks, that can be changed anytime. If I airbrushed it, little too permanent.

As for the radome, it is a resin copy of the Tamiya boxing. Shape is definitely different than Has offering

Maybe if you´ll polish it a little more, it will look better - but it is my oppinion, its your F-16 and your way to go :blink:

Latest shots, posted same pictures in Jet modeling with these new CF decals to make the -229 engine. The decals are prototypes and with a little tweaking, should be available soon.

Finally some more progress, I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Next step is to finish the engine nozzle & add weapons. I also plan to add some RBF flags at some stage. Hopefully I can do all this without breaking of that pesky Radome pitot tube again!

Egcellent build ... but it looks on two of the above pics as though the nose cone has been put on upside down. I have never seen a Viper Nosecone with such a curve on the underside. The underside is generally a straight line. Is this a flaw in the kit?

Great looking Viper! I hope the one I'm working on comes out half as good as that. :o
