I enjoy all vehicle and motorsport subjects. I aim not to do the usual. No matter how much I might determine to do a quick and 'out of the box' model every now and again I get involved with research and then find a decal isn't the correct size or is not quite the right typeface or the shaping for a particular race hasn't been taken in to account... a year later and I'm still 'adjusting'. I must be the least prolific model maker, it's not like the end result is perfect by any means but there is considerable satisfaction in having 'struggled' with a tiny element of a model that may not even be visible on completion.
As there are no group builds currently in progress that I am equipped to enter and fail to meet the deadline, as I’ve missed the Spitfire STGB and don’t have the correct mark of Spitfire for the Battle of Britain 80th (which I really should be entering), I’ve decided to do something, hopefully, a little different. Inspired by some great pictures here I thought I might finally get round to doing an F-16 I’ve had in the stash for ages. So using this kit: I‘m going to try and create something like this, taken by Kevin Wills and published on www.globalaviationresource.com Here’s a shot of the kit parts (obviously I once made a start on this kit as a few bits have been painted white), and the kit decals (sadly a bit damaged from too long in a damp garage) and some aftermarket etched brass as the kit will need to be updated (why do I do this? I’m rubbish at using etch and superglue!) a close up of the etch and the decals I’ll be using to do an RJAF jet If I’m to get a model looking even remotely like the picture on Global Aviation Resource is going to be a challenge, and I really ought to try and give myself a deadline - maybe the end of October? Possibly November? But probably December!!
