Hi Everybody.

Here are some pics from a WIP a made for a Belgian pilot who flied with it.

It's an F-16B coded FB-17

The base is the Sufa from Academy.

I started this one 2 or 3 years ago. As it was not supposed to appear on a forum, there are not so many pictures.

Here are the pics:

Very nice! I especially like the work on the 'mouth' and that cockpit is very nice. Just as Martin I'm not a sucker for these modern planes because there's so little variety, but that does not mean I admire the work you are putting into this. And of course something Belgian is never a bad thing ;-)

Aye, aye .... Where'd this come from??? Kept this one quiet Jamme!

Personally, I like jets (in fact, anything that flies) as well just because they go very, very fast but some of the colour schemes out of necessity are fairly bland. I tend to like the more outrageous colour schemes such as "aggressor" squadrons.

 

(I would sacrifice certain vital body parts to take a ride in a fast jet - the closest I got was sitting in a Hawk - courtesy of a friend who flew Tornado for a living - and even then they had to pry me out because I didn't want to leave it. :D)

 

Looking forward to watching progress Jamme.

Blimey Jamme, that is nice work buddy. Not normally a modern jet aircraft person but I sure as heck like this.

 

Looking forward to seeing more, thanks for sharing ;-)

Thank you very much, Jeroen.

Appreciate this;

Ehhh.... hello!

Wow... That's amazing. You must have been keeping this quiet for some time!

Great stuff. I'm following.

Hello Jeroen,

I started this one 2-3 years ago.......

It's time to finish her, because the guy for who I have to build it, has a meeting with other pilots mid December.......

Thank you Mate.

Cheers,

Jamme

 

 

Really like this project, Jamme! Are you using the PWMP tail-root for it?

Hi Erik.

Pleased you like it.

Yes I used the PWMP root tail."

At the moment I bought it, JP (Jean-Pierre from Plastic World) had only the root for the Revell kit, so a little"adaptation" had to be done......

Cheers,

Jamme

Thank you Grant.

That surely was great fun in the Hawk!

I have to paint the F-16 as it was when the guy flew with it.

It will be the standard colors, but very much faded.

Thank you for looking.

Cheers,

Jamme

Thank you for the nice comment.

The resin tail base is different from that in the Sufa F-16.

We have here in Belgium an other additional ECM equipment and it's used in the place of the tail base instead of the drag chute.

We also have the system called "Carapace"......

Don't forget our F-16 are Block 20 MLU's....

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Jamme
