Tamiya 1/48 F-16C Block 52 Swamp Fox Jet FINISHED


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 
Just finished this after about 6 years away from the hobby.  It's Tamiya's excellent 1/48 F-16C with the following aftermarket sets:
 
Decals: Speed Hunter Graphic’s SEAD specialists part I sheet, also used homemade masks made with my Silhouette printer for the tail markings and Fox head logo.
Cockpit: Avionix cockpit set with Wolfpack’s ejection seat
Weapons: Hasegawa’s weapons set E for the HTM pod and Sniper pylon, Eduard for the Sniper pod, AIM-120's, and HARM Missile
Wheel bays: Aires
Exhaust: Aries
Nose: Royal Resin
Master static dischargers and pitot tube sets
Eduard's PE set for the Tamiya F-16 and their undercarriage set
 
In-progress photos are at the below  page:
 
  
Gunze and Alclad lacquers were used for painting, weathering was with artist oils and Tamiya's weathering washes.  Overall, the project took 8 months since I'm a slow builder.  Hope you enjoy!

Absolutely fantastic in every way.  Perfect attention to detail.  Perfect paint work.  Perfect ordnance.  I'm so excited to see a HARM that isn't painted white.

 

Outstanding work!!
