Kinetic 1/48 HAF F-16D Block52M 023 335sq "NATO Tiger Meet 2018"

Recommended Posts



   I am proudly presenting you my first finished model in 1/48 scale. 

   This model represents a Hellenic Airforce F 16D Block52M fighter and most particular the a/c with s/n 023, carrying the scheme from NATO Tiger Meet 2018 exercise (Poznań, Poland). The scheme was applied on CFTs and on the drop tanks and it's colour was inspired by white tiger of Bengal. It took me 4 months to complete the build (Jan 21 - Apr 21).

   The base of the model is Kinetic's 48076 kit. Also resin parts from Aires (pitot, seats and nozzle) as well as from Eduard (Wheels) were used. The decals were from Zeus Project's F-16 Block 52+/M decalsheet (s/n, stencils & insignias) and Modelmaker (NTM 2018 scheme). 

   Since it was one of my first models I didn't add details in wheelbays. I made some modifications on the dorsal spine (HAF's F-16D's have differnt arrangement of flare/chaff launchers). Mr.Surfacer 1500 Black was used as base coat, while the camo was painted using AK's RCs (RC237 Medium Grey FS 35237, RC248 Aggressor Grey FS 36251, RC250 Light Sea Grey FS 36307, RC251 Dark Ghost Grey FS 36320). The HAVE glass effect was made by the addition of X-23 and X-19 into varnish's mixture. Finaly Winsor & Newton oils were used for the weathering.


Your opinion is really important!!!


Hope you like it!!!!
