Right finally something to show. The cockpit's all built up and pilot seated. I can't help feel its a bit crued, but not much of will be seen.

Is that 'Tinlegs' Bader in the pit there? ;)

I know the drill, having amputated my F-14 pilot and RIO to get them in! Be good to see this Portuguese Falcon.

I'm in the middle of making an F-16B in Portuguese air force, but I could not join in the group build because I had already started making it before the group build, I also have an F-16A Florida ANG and an Egyptian F-16C on the go as well all in 1/72 scale.

As you might be able to see, I've managed to get paint on the conopy. Any good ways of getting this off?

What paint are you using? You might want to try cutting a cocktail stick at a 45 deg angle, then using the flat , sharp edge to scrape the paint off. Works ok with enamel paint for me.

I'm going to call this finished, no quite as I had hoped for. Hopefully my futre vipers will be better.

David,

That's a good looking F-16! Liking the in flight pose you've got there. Every model built is more modelling learned and honed. Good stuff.
