Tamiya F-16 CJ


Recommended Posts

Before I start with my Tornado I want to show you some pics of my Tamiya F-16 Fighting Falcon. 
I build this kit OOB except an Aires bangseat and lots of scratchbuilding. 
Gunze Colors were used for the painting. Handpainting the cockpit is a challenge but made a lot of fun.

That‘s all regarding the F-16.

Will complete the Mirage III diorama and then move on to the Tornado.

Thank you for your nice feedback Gus.

Do you have a picture of yours or did you post an article here? 
You know I love the IDF camouflage and I‘m very curious to see yours!

BTW: How about Your Cheetah? Can’t wait to see her finished…

Awesome Viper - perfect build. I built the same Viper a number of years ago on LSP and an amazing kit. I couldn't find any pics, so I did a search for it on LSP for an image to post.

Not in the same league as yours and sorry for the image quality.

Keep 'em comin

A flawless build, and unlike the majority of us mere mortals who load on the Aires to show our extreme laziness towards scratchbuilding, (yep, that’s me, I only do it when needed, and look for the easiest way)  you took what was there and kitted it out to perfection.

Bravo!  I have three Vipers in the stash now, one Tamiya, and a couple Academy two holers. I’m scared of jets, lol, and I know I won’t achieve these kinds of results.

Thanks for your feedback guys.

Yours is absolutely in the same league Peter. Don’t underestimate your builds!

Thank you Ernie. I‘m already old so I was obliged to learn scratchbuilding because no resin parts existed…
