  1. Thank You for the info! Here in the US, GWH one is twice as much as the Revell one!
  2. awesome build!. How did the kit go together? fit issues? was thinking of this or the newer revell one in 1/48
  3. awesome build! I know the feeling when you say wheels don't even look like wheels! how to they get the rest of the mold to look good and then the easiest thing they mess up haha
  4. I have been on a F-16 Viper kick lately after finishing my USMC aggressor Viper "what if" I wanted to build another USMC Viper but this time make it a block 70. I mashed two kits together and this is the result. some parts came from a 1/72 Hasegawa F-16I Sufa which I am converting to a Block 30 Barak. The parts which I took off this kit were the Conformal Fuel Tanks and some other misc. parts and pods to add to make it look like a block 70. The rest of the build came out of the box of a 1/72 Tamiya F-16CJ Block 50. I also added triple ejector racks and 4 GBU-12's from a Hasegawa weapons set. The decals came from Caracal AV-8B (also in the stash) and the remainder of my Dark Vipers sheet as I love the way The have Glass V paint scheme looks on Vipers. I know that some US Marine pilots flew F-16s in order to prepare for the transition to F-35B Lightnings. I also know that VMA-214 is transitioning to F-35Bs starting in 2023. VMA-214 "Blacksheep is one of the most famous US Marine fighter squadrons in history. Major Pappy Boyington also commanded this squadron and won the Medal of Honor during WW2, on top of being part of the AVG Flying Tigers in China. This is my tribute. Semper Fi!

  6. Can't wait to start this. Anyone build this yet? Advice? Ive put together a Trumpeter su-27 and it was alot less parts and details Su-30 SM by Reginaldo Reyes, on Flickr
  7. It's actually the Have Glass V paint scheme the various ANG units are painting their F-16s.
  8. This is awesome! I just finished the same one in BDU splinter! I did the FROG F-16 but it is an academy mold!
  9. I've been on an F-16 Viper kick lately being stuck in Quarantine. Luckily, Ebay and the Post Office still work. I ordered a 1/72 Hasegawa F-16I Sufa and another Tamiya F-16 C Block 50. The Sufa Kit included an extra set of Resin Conformal Fuel Tanks which gave me an idea to mash these two kits together. Upon further inspection of the Sufa kit, I noticed an extra sprue (sprue L) which was not needed with the Sufa build that would give the parts necessary to make a Viper in block 60 or 70! Score!!!! I guess the sprues were part of the build for the discontinued and hard to find Hasegawa 1/72 F-16E Fighting Falcon UAE Desert Falcon Kit. I decided to add the resin CFT's to the Sufa and use the Hasegawa CFT's on the Tamiya kit. you can notice a difference on the color in molding on both the Hasegawa and Tamiya Kits Looking forward to this project! I am still debating on what I want to use as far as a color scheme for the single seat version, I was thinking a concept Viper for the Philippines Air Force since they at one time were thinking about purchasing it.
