  1. And so you should be, she's an absolute stunner.
  2. Very nice, would love to see more pics of how you did the hangar
  3. Very nice job, especially the weathering on the tracks and running gear
  4. I would go ARC and the sub forums for Caracal Decals and Reid Air Publications and suggest them in there. Both guys are very open to suggestions like these, especially if they get lots of support, which being F-16s they would on ARC. Caracal is probably a better bet in 1/72. My Afterburner sheet was printed in 2009 so its due someone having another go. Lucky man! I don't think I ever saw one in the flesh. Lots of low level A-10s and F-111s up my way, and Lightnings on long finals, but never an F-16...
  5. Fantastic job on those wee figures. You'd think it was 1/72 with them alongside the kit.
  6. Very, very happy with how this kit has turned out considering its been sat in the garage swathed in dust and masking tape and at the mercy of the cats the last 5 years, whilst I've been in a modelling funk. The Tamiya kit is absolutely superb, one of the best kits I've ever built, the quality is really obvious when you place it next to the Kinetic and Hasegawa kits. There's 4 or 5 little bits on there I'm not happy with, but I'm happy to move on and call it done after all this time. Onto the pics. F-16C Block 30, 527th Aggressor Squadron, RAF Bentwaters, 1989. I used just a little light weathering with a MiG dark wash, these birds weren't around long enough to get that dirty. I made the intake cover using a piece of cardboard, covered it tissue paper soaked in white glue and painted yellow. Red Star came from the decal sheet. It's also a rare bird in that although it was one of the first Block 30 F-16s, which came equipped with the new GE engine, but the early ones still had the "small mouth" intake, later Block 30s coming equipped with the "big mouth" intake due to their requirement for a larger airflow. The decals are from the now defunct Afterburner Decals. I used the Tamiya metal detailing set for the pitot probes and ejection seat belts. Inspiration for the real thing to finish up with. Alas the 527th was very short lived with F-16s, lasting less than 2 years before the end of the Cold War brought about their disbandment. My collection of F-16s now stands at 5/16..... Thanks for looking
  7. Very nice. Such a crazy busy vehicle, I think I'd go cross-eyed trying to build it. Lovely, subtle weathering.
  8. Surely that's a typo in your title? In 1/32 this kit would be amazing. In 1/72.......? Wow.
  9. Awesome figures and an unbelievably cool and unique way to display them.
  10. Very nice kit, and lovely collection. The Gigant is suitably named!
  11. Wow. Incredible imagination, building, paintwork and weathering And lovely subtle missing toes and fingers. Reek, Reek, it rhymes with Geek!
  12. Great pics, would never have guessed they were so tiny without the lighter!
