Hello ARC,

Here is my latest finished product...  A 1/72 F-16C Block 52+ built from the Academy MCP snap together kit.  I added a bunch of aftermarket goodies (pitot boom/AOA probes, radome, ejection seat, pilot figure, CFTs, afterburner nozzle, and weapons/pods/CL tank) and scratched a bunch of antennas according to references.  I used Mr. Color paints and Caracal decals to finish the jet as a Polish AF machine, marked for a NATO Tiger Meet.  I struggle with photography... and this time was worse than usual, but I hope you like my model anyway!  This will be the last post from me for a while...  It's time to pack up and move to a new house.  Wish me luck :)

Hey Todd, what did you use to paint the burner can? Especially the petals. They have that carbon-fibre look like the real thing. Fantastic! :thumbsup:

Lovely build! :thumbsup: The exhaust nozzle looks amazing.

 

EDIT:

Which manufacturer is the nozzle from?

Very nice display, too! :thumbsup:

Hi Mike C, thanks for the compliment. I mixed Mr. Color flat black and super iron (SM03), then lightly dry brushed the edges of the petals with steel.
