  1. Hi all, This was originally intended to be a build log of this gorgeous kit but unfortunately I never got round to taking any pictures after the early stages! So instead, here are the finished photos of this commission build, done as a Block 40 Falcon in the colours of the 555FS based in Aviano, Italy around the time of Operation Allied Force in 1999. The model is the Tamiya F-16C kit with some odd additions from the Academy kit, Aires, AstraDecals, Eduard and my scratchbuilding efforts. Enjoy ! Thanks for looking! Alan
  2. Timelapse to the end - it wasn't really much of a build log in the end. My apologies! Finished build photos are HERE
  3. Thanks MUK. I don't think anything's really 'cheating' in my book if it delivers the best result! I call it labour-saving

    Hi WB, Nice to see another one of these handsome Vipers taking shape! I'm viewing this on my phone so apologies if I may have missed the detail, but it's worth noting that there are three AoA probes on the F-16F nose cone. Two as you've done, and one extra one on the left side angled down at 45deg from the horizontal. https://goo.gl/images/jLMCFt Alan
  5. Sorry, I finally came back and answered your PM Thanks very much for the kind words! Alan
  6. Hi Stewart, we all started at that level, it's just a matter of learning and testing out techniques, getting used to your most comfortable scale or subject and having a reliable set of tools, glues and paints that you're familiar with using. After that, you're well on your way to modelling greatness! Thanks for asking after the build, I've actually finished it now after not taking any more pictures I'll add the finished ones when I get to a proper computer. Cheers, Alan

    That would be a great subject to try. How are your origami skills
  8. This is great stuff! What online modelling is all about. The pilot figure is marvellous, really slick work. Alan
  9. Funny, it all depends what you're used to. I like these because they're quite petite in 1/32
