Tamiya 1/48 F-16CG Block 40 36FS, 51FW

Recommended Posts

I converted a Block 50 back to a Block 40 which in this instance meant changing the HUD from the kit one to WAR type via a beautifully designed resin one newly released from drpepper Resins and adding the fuselage strengthening plates which came from a new Korean company called Crossdelta (available from Sprue Brothers)who also provided the decals. The wheels were changed to Doug Smith's Royale Resin Block 40 set. The pitots are from the Tamiya detail up set for the F-16 and are just lovely.The seeker cover for the AIM-9 Sidewinder is from Airwaves as are the RBF tags and the seat is Quickboost .I made the FOD cover from baking foil moulded round an Airwaves resin MCID inlet which was then primed and sprayed red,the unit decal came from another Crossdelta F-16 sheet. The weapons are from the kit except for the third AIM-120 which was from the RM Super Hornet and the JDAM's are from the Hasegawa weapons set D.

Paints throughout were Xtracrylix,Gunze,Vallejo and Tamiya.

Questions and comments are welcome

Nice Osan Viper you've got here. Interesting asymmetrical load-out.

One thing though. The Quickboost seats don't come with the rails and I think you might have missed them.
