PostSubject: Lockheed's F-16cj {Block 50}   Sun May 19 2013, 12:55

Another of the Tamiya F 16 kits and this time it's the first release of the Viper family the Block 50, but it is built as a 'WHAT IF' and was my participation in another International Group Build, the kit has added external stores taken from yet another of the Tamiya F 16 kits, my subject is painted in the Humbrol 116, 117 and 118 on the upper surfaces and applied free hand with Humbrol 147 on the lower surfaces, the decals are taken from the spares box that are left over from the Airfix Hawk 127 kit. As I mentioned it is a fiction subject and made to replicate a well used airframe. Tamiya Acrylic Smoke was applied over the finished model except for the canopy. The application of the Tamiya Smoke adds a realistic weathered appearance, from sand, sun and salt water, the un weathered plain canopy frame replicates a replacement item. The Sharks Mouth motif was added to give this subject a more menacing appearance, when seen at low altitude level flight.

Highlighted detail of the cockpit.

76 Sqn RAAF Panther motif and Australian flag on the rudder post.

Stencils applied and test fitting of the hard points and their stores.

The finished model subject.

NOTE:- I may build another of these 'What If' Viper subjects in the same scheme.

When you go home tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow we gave our today.

Those that never learn from history will always repeat it.
