The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Polish F 16 C


Recommended Posts

I got the top fuselage parts out to see how the fit of the Academy fuel tanks will fit. These were  a gift from Scott plus the extended para pack parts. But I'm happy with the fit sofar.  It needs tweeking but very possible......harv

Today's lesson,  para pack. The grey piece is from the Academy kit that Scott so graciously sent me. Looks to be an easy fix. Single cut and mate up. The cut is on a panel line....harv

Looks great Harv

Although I dont know much about F-16's, they are one of my favorite jets.  I had to do a google to see how what you made compares with photos and I think you have actually done a really really great job capturing the shape and size.  Only one thing after looking at photos I might suggest, is thinning the mounting plate down a little.  Not a criticism at all, just a genuine response to your question.

Otherwise bravo buddy....great job!  I will enjoy following along....and try to resist buying a kit, I got my own Phantom to finish first!

Cheers Anthony

Only staged,  nothing glued yet. I switched the grey Sprue instead of the green because its softer and easier to sand. Olso found some thinner card for the base plates. What is your opinions?......harv

Looks quite good now and also the plates are better than the former ones.

I‘m not an expert but you should keep it as it is...
