F-16CG Pope AFB "Fighting Tigers"

Recommended Posts

Academy 1/32 Viper with TwoBobs decals from Pope AFB. I did this same scheme several years ago using a Hasegawa F-16A+ kit with CE's resin big mouth intake before Academy or Tamyia released their 1/32 Vipers. I also replaced the IP cover which makes Academy's Viper a lot better to look at with the canopy open. I debated about putting the pilot in the bang seat, but Academy's pilot is so well done I thought I'd go ahead. I made the 74th FS patch on the pilot's left shoulder, but it didn't settle down very well. Warning: Picture Heavy!!

Overall, it was a fun build. The shark mouth decals didn't want to cooperate, but I managed to get them on without them looking too bad.

Very, very nice. I really enjoy looking at the pics. I would not have noticed anything with the pilots patch if you had not said something but hey Velcro patches look raised anyway.

Awesome. In some of those pics, if I dent know it was a model, I'd have been convinced that it was the real thing!
