F-16C, Tayeset 101 (Revell 1:144)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here are the first photos of the model presently at the workbench.

 

It is another minute Israeli F-16, this time a C model of Tayeset 101.

 

Some details were lost after puttying and sanding some problematic areas - I tried to replace them to the best of my abilities.

To build the blisters at the vertical stabilizer base I've used some brass rod and machined it to shape.

A quick update:

The cockpit got a bit of paint and the canopy was glued after masking it.

The air intake and the landing gear were masked with panzerputty. After painting the exhaust nozzle and the radar radome (masked with masking tape), it was ready for some the camouflage.

The camouflage was basically completed this weekend.

The sand color was applied first.

Then, the different areas of the camouflage were marked with a pencil.

The colors were applied (first the green, then the earth).

The overspray was cleaned up as best as I could, airbrushing very close to the models surface, first with the green color and lastly with the sand color.

After removing all the masks, this was the result.

There are a few touch-ups to be made, but I'm basically done with airbrushing on this one!

I hope to post more soon.

Nicely painted, I don't think you can get finer borders with free hand only way is to mask.

Really cool build!
