  1. Maybe because Hasegawa put it in the same box as the F, which did see combat, so that is a more popular subject to build.
  2. Thanks! I used a pencil to draw the pattern on the model, and then rolls of white tack for masking. Nothing fancy. The panellines were done with a light pastel wash. Thank you. I just used white paint (Tamiya) on the wells and struts. The wheels were done with aluminium paint, but on the real ones white was used as well. Just check your refs.
  3. Hi all, Here's my 1/72 Hasegawa F-111D that I just finished. I used some Eduard PE on it, mainly in the cockpit, and used a mix of Superscale and kit decals. Painted with Gunze and Tamiya. I wanted to add a pair of Eduard AIM-9's, but those PE fins are really testing my patience and skills, so they might be added later. And the cockpit during construction: Thanks for looking.
  4. I guess that would make them BDU-50's then.
  5. It was introduced in 2017. Here's an article about it with not much info: https://theaviationist.com/2017/10/08/new-f-16c-aggressor-color-livery-dubbed-bdu-splinter-unveiled-at-eielson-air-force/ Twobobs does 1/48 and 1/72 decals for it: http://www.twobobs.net/contents/en-us/p713_48-262-F-16C-Alaskan-Splinters-Part-II.html http://www.twobobs.net/contents/en-us/p712_72-107-F-16C-Alaskan-Splinters-Pt-II.html
  6. Here's the whole range of photo's of that jet at the National Archives website, excluding the ones already posted: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/6414356 https://catalog.archives.gov/id/6414358 https://catalog.archives.gov/id/6414359 https://catalog.archives.gov/id/6414360
  7. Decals can be bought from AOA Decals: Click me
  8. The Swiss Hornets had a software update that resulted in more maneuverability, IIRC.
  9. No F-16 kit requires any noseweight.
  10. Slightly off topic, but we could do with some nice new Kadena and other PACAF unit F-4 decals.
  11. Looking at photo's, I see green rails (mostly on older ones), grey rails (later during the grey/green camo days, maybe already painted for the newer single grey scheme), and light grey rails, possibly borrowed from F.2/3's? Since the pylons are also green, I guess the stub mounts were green as well. But others probably have been far closer to RAF Tornado's than me and can give you a better answer.
  12. Depends on what you consider special, of course, but Fightertown did a sheet with some bright options. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/fightertown-decals-48059-booming-intruders--172666 They did a couple other Intruder sheet, as did Furball, Afterburner, AOA and of course Microscale and Superscale, amongst others. Which version are you building?
  13. Not sure, but I think it's more like this: Revell owns the moulds, but they are actually located at a moulding company that does work for Revell. Say in Poland, for instance. Eduard contacts Revell, saying they want to do a special edition of this kit, and order a certain number of the sprues needed. Revell then orders the company in Poland to produce these, which then gets shipped straight to Eduard HQ which boxes them and puts them on the market. I doubt Revell's quality control people get their hands on them first. Eduard should have caught this, and asked for better clear parts.
  14. You're reading that Scalemates timeline wrong. Which is understandable, as it can be quite confusing. There's no grey line between the Hasegawa timeline and this kit. This kit is the Monogram kit reboxed, and for some reason it doesn't show that properly on the Scalemates timeline.
  15. Yes, there's the pretty hard to find Airdoc sheet. Also this MilSpec sheet. And Wolfpak did one too.
