  1. Hi Friends I am building the F-16XL, 1/48, #2, sn-75-0747, Kinetic. I wish to display its air brakes opened but instructions just show them in closed position. I have been insistently searching the Internet for photographs and websites referring to the F-16XL, # 2, but I really think only found a distant -and not very clear photo- where the open air brakes appear, but I'm not sure if they would be white or Lighter gray. Could someone help me to define exactly which Federal Standard are they ? Thanks Mario
  2. HI Hope to see more pics of Your work on this kit, Mario

    NEW cockpit

    Hi Dov Sorry for my question as I did not see no questions about the dimensions of the 3D Decals from Quinta Studio. So are the 3D Decals sized to simple drop fit in the plastic Kit cockpit or are they sized to correct scaled dimensions of the real cockpit ? Thanks, hope hear soon from Your productions. Yours SouthViper
  5. All depends on what do you really want. In 1/48, I believe the old F-14A from Hasegawa is the name even for today's standards, flaps and slats down, M-61 Vulcan bay, very nice cockpits, open air brakes and Right dimensions . The HB kits have some serious errors in inlet shape. The OLD Monogram/Revell looks good but in fact has shape problems around nose, radar, cockpit. Tamiya is new, I do not know about its shape accuracy, very recommended.
  6. Hi, Yes , the Italian company called ITALAEREI, now ITALERI has both kits in 1/48, the SR-71 Blackbird and "The Thing" YF-12 . I believe You can find "The Thing" in model contests, reunions, internet, Hope it helps SouthViper

  8. Ciao fantastico modello del Tornado di Aeronautica Militare, eccellente dettaglio delle alette, Mi sono piaciuti i toni dei colori mimetici, sono molto discreti e hanno varie sfumature, che รจ senza dubbio molto laborioso da ottenere o riprodurre in scala. Southviper * * Vipera meridionale Hi fantastic model of the Tornado from Aeronautica Militare, excellent detail of the flaps, I liked the tones of the camouflage colors, they are very discreet and have several shades, which is undoubtedly very laborious to be obtained or reproduced in scale.

  9. friends I have the new Revell, 1/48, Panavia IDS and comparing the kit's front fuselage sides to pics of the real plane I suspect they are somewhat "diamond shaped" on the kit. And comparing these parts to respective drawings on Aeroguide #24 this "diamond shaped" does not appears and the fuselage sides are straight. Trying to correct it, if my point be right, would be worth of? Is there some tutorial regarding this? Thank You very much SouthViper
  10. Thanks, very useful photos , always a pleasure see F-16XL photos. SouthViper
  11. Hi Recently I saw somewhere that the wing Pylons on the prototypes Tornadoes were different from the Pylons of the production Tornadoes ? If it is true are there some pics or drawing to shape the Pylons found in the 1/48 Revell Tornado IDS/GR1 ? Thanks SouthViper
  12. Hi, This "F-16" kit from Revell is in fact something like a hybrid model. Revell had toked advantage in releasing first model of the absolutely new, incredible and beautiful jet fighter designated F-16, remember, we were in the 70's... Such market race made its price and some inaccuracies were committed by Revell for a production F-16. Some parts of this kit are originally to build the YF-16 prototypes, both of the two as decals are for the #567 and #568 machines. Also You can confirm this looking to the kit's Canopy, Escapac ejection seat, Pitot Tube, front landing gear
