    F-16 Romania... what colours

    Hi, I was wondering what the "grey" colours are for the Romanian F-16 AM/BM. They have a different camo grey scheme than usual. Modelmaker has a small decalset 72097 http://www.modelmaker.com.pl/D72097-F-16AM-BM-in-Romanian-service/1278/ .... but I can not see what these grey Fed.Std colours are... Info / suggestions?

    F-16 Kits/Block questions

    Hi, I have made over 2 dozens of 1/72 F-16 kits of various brands, Blocks and air forces. Also the older kits and Red/White/blue ones... https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/f16/f16-proto.htm You may find a lot of info about the many F-16's at modelling pages here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/f16/f16-1.htm A lot of F-16 schemes and variations are possible. Still more models to follow... Enjoy modelling! Meindert

    F-16D Block 50 in 1/72

    hi thank you all for the info and suggestions. Plenty of info to proceed further. Especially Luigi for the detail about the kit 00125 that thus indeed has the large intake and the link showing the parts. As the Hasegawa kit 00125 is long sold out I will have to cross-kit. I still have a standard Hasegawa F-16D D15 (for a Block 25/30) on the stack and have a spare large intake and a pile of stores and pods. Meindert

    Revell 1/72 Mig 21

    I don't recall much nose weight needed, but just put a little weight just in case. More ideas regarding the 1/72 Revell MiG-21 F13 kit assembly can be seen here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/mig21-72-2/mig21-2.htm have fun while modelling! Meindert

    Best 1/72 Alpha Jet...?

    a whole bunch of Alphajets in 1/72 can be seen build here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/alphajet/alphajet-1.html Sometimes things went a bit wrong while making one of these 1/72 kits, but both Airfix and Heller can be made into nice small models :-)) Meindert
  7. for the 1/32 Revell Eurofighter Typhoon kit, check out my modelling report at the pages here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/eurofighter/eurofighter-1.htm I made several corrections on the 1/32 Revell Typhoon that are all explained on those pages. have fun! Meindert

    F-16D Block 50 in 1/72

    Hi I want to build a F-16D Block 50 two seater in 1/72 scale. It should have the larger "big mouth" intake (approx. 20 mm width in 1/72) and have an GE F110 engine exhaust along with the standard "thick base" F-16C/D tail in USAF style. Probable the only 1/72 kit is the old Hasegawa F-16D kit no. 00125 released in 2005... I did not find any reviews of this kit on the net. Can anyone who has the kit at home please check if this Hasegawa kit has indeed the larger intake for a Block 50? Or is an alternative the crude 1/72 Hobbyboss F-16D "Thunderbird kit" , a Block 30? But does it have a large intake? Thanks, Meindert
  11. Hi

    I see a photo of the J-7 at


    I strongly recommend you to remove it the pgoto.

    It is a Getty copyrighted photo and I have friends who go a big fine and had to remove the photo as Getty does not accept any re-use of their copyrighted material.

    T-28 Trojan

    Hi, in most cases indeed white moving surfaces but I have also seen greys and even greens on some T-28. Best to search photos of your desired T-28 scheme. Don't know I you already made big progress on your T-28 model, but some ideas and suggestions may be seen at my webpages here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/t28-32/t28-32-1.htm and for 1/72 kits also check out https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/fennec/fennec.htm Currently working on a couple of 1/72 Sword kits, details will be published within a few weeks. Happy modelling! Meindert

    Best 1/32 (Eurofighter) Typhoon?

    I would prefer Revell. Some hints for improving this 1/32 Eurofighter kit can be found on my modelling page here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/eurofighter/eurofighter-1.htm

    Hi made a comparison of 3 kits January 2016, see my pages here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/shackleton/shackleton-1.htm Depending on what you want in a kit, pick your kit.
