  1. RSAF F-16 training detachment (if it had a squadron designation at this time, I couldn't find it) of the 58th Tac Training Wing playing in Red Flag 90-1 at Nellis AFB, October 1989. These aircraft are from the first RSAF Foreign Military Sale program: Peace Carvin I. F-16A 87-0397 F-16A 87-0398 F-16A 87-0399 F-16A 87-0400 F-16B 87-0401 F-16B 87-0402 F-16B 87-0403 F-16B 87-0404 Emblem on the left side of the engine intake Thanks for looking, Sven
  2. The F-16I is a two-seat variant of the Block 52 developed for the Israeli Defence Force – Air Force. Pics thanks to Dov.
  3. Hello folks, This is the old 1/72 Hasegawa F-16C converted into a Portuguese F-16AM. The decals and seat are after-market items whereas many details are from scratch. Hope you like it, cheers.

    Bentwaters F-16s

    At some point I'd like to make a 527 AS F-16 as based at Bentwaters, all too briefly, in the late 80s. I believe they were block 30 F-16Cs; can anyone tell me if there is a suitable 1/48 kit to represent one? Would any F-16C kit do or are the different 'block' versions quite obviously different?
  5. Hi guys here is my Hasegawa F-16 from the Royal Netherlands Airforce as it participated in the NATO Tigermeet held at Fairford in 1991. I have build it for the F-16 STGB here at Britmodeller. Hope you like it. NATO Tigermeet 1991 Fairford UK F-16A Royal Netherlands Airforce 313 squadron Hasegawa 1/48 kit with Quickboost ejection seat, wheel doors, Aires exhaust nozzle, and from Master the pitot tube, AOA probes and static dischargers. Build thread can be found here Erik
  6. New boxing for the Kinetic 1/48th F-16A/B NSAWC Adversary - ref. K48004 Block 15 Markings: - NSAWC 04 TOPGUN 90th Anniversary 2009 - NSAWC 60 2006-2009 - NSAWC 53 2004 Decal printed by Cartograf Decal design by FighterTown Decal Model Feature: Training ACMI Pod Related Links Source: http://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=KI-K48004 V.P.
  7. Second version of our first kit PE4801. Changed the way the assembly. Sets can be used with models of aircraft: F-15, F-16, F-111, A-10, CH-53, Swiss Hawker Hunter F.Mk.58. One set allows you to assemble four blocks, enough to equip such plane as F-16. For the F-15 will need two sets, and for the A-10 – four.
  8. F-16 IDF Introduction My intention was to represent the F-16 of the Israeli Air Force with the entire development of the F-16 A, (Netz) via the F-16 C (Barak), F-16 D (Barak) to the F-16 I (Sufa) faithfully. I had the chance to see the F-16 A and the F-16 I at Hatzerim AFB very closely, in flight I saw all variants of F-16 which are presently in IAF service. F-16A Netz I built the F-16 A Netz Nr. 234 from the Flying Dragon squadron. The kit in 1/48 is from Italieri. Additional parts are from Eduard (Cockpit, ladder the FOD), Exhaust nozzle from Aires, Conversion set from Isracast. The F-16A was on a training flight: Therefore, I mounted a tank and one Ehud pot (in the body of an AIM 9 Sidewinder) on the tip of the port wing. This configuration has really flown like that For the F-16 A, Ofer Zidon's book "Israeli Air Force Cutting Edge" has beautiful photos of the F-16A. Happy Modeling
  9. This is the Eduard Top Falcon F-16. As many of you will know it's Kinetic plastic and Eduard resin and etch. I used probably half of the extras because some of the resin bits were more effort in terms of fit. There are a few inaccuracies with the kit, most of which I didn't address.. It's one of those kits you wonder why you started in the first place and I wanted it done! Paint is my own mix as the colour call out was incorrect in my opinion. All in all I'm happy with the way it turned out. Onto the pictures then.. Please note, the canopy is not permanently attached yet. The rear canopy section is crazed as per my reference pics (done by spraying Tamiys Flat Clear XF-86 on the inside). I was going for a patchy, grimey look as is characteristic of these aircraft. Thanks for looking. Questions and constructive comments welcome!
  10. Just completed Tamiya's F-16CJ in 1/48. Their own decals were used along with Mr Hobby and Xtracrylix for the camo and Vallejo Metal Color for the jet pipe. The kit was a pleasure to make. The only changed I made was to replace one of the HARMs with a JDAM.
  11. Hi all, I hadn't planned to do a WIP thread but I changed my mind part way into the build. So, this won't be a detailed thread, just a collection of pics as I go. The main reason I got back into modelling is because I really wanted a really detailed F-16 on my desk, and I thought it was as good an excuse as any to get back into the hobby properly. I could have paid one of the many pros to do one for me and the results would be 10x better than I could ever achieve, but I wanted to do it myself So, off to the LHS I went I bought two Tamyia kits. When I saw the options, I knew immediately which example I wanted to build - #83-1144, I block 25 ANG F-16C. The reason? It is the livery/scheme shown on the box art of the flight sim I have been studying/flying for 20 years, Falcon 4.0. Neither of the above images is 100% accurate for the jet it represents, but it's close enough to show the airframe I'm modelling AIRE4364 Aires F-16C 25/32 resin/PE cockpit set QAB480025 Aires AIM-9L/M Seeker Cover and RBF tag set I was going to get the Tamiya detail up set too, but decided to scratch build the strengthening plates instead On to the build! Landing gear bay is nicely detailed, but lacking some details. I'm not too fussed about everything being perfect, but the cockpit tub (ICP and UFC in particualar) is surprisingly lacking for a Tamiya kit. Undercarriage I can live with though, and will beef it up a bit with wires etc later on. Sadly though, there are many injector pin marks, some in obviously visible areas, so they will need to be filled. Thankfully, many are raised flashed edges, so they can be scraped off without the need for filler. The next thing I wanted to tackle was the engine intake. I've built F-16s before and am aware of the 'challenge' of getting a nice seam free assembly AND somehow paint it. It went together well, but I had to get creative with tools to get the innards smooth and seam free. Getting there... More on this later. Next, I turned my attention to the cockpit tub, as I was looking forward to taking advantage of the details. It takes LOTS of fiddling and plastic/resin removal to get it to fit. The photos aren't up to date, but at the time of writing I have it about 95% ready to fit, before all the filling starts. The PE parts are tiny! Cockpit painted, ready for gloss and wash: Side walls aren't fitted yet, but they're painted and ready to attach (not photo'd). As you can see, there are lot of gaps that will need addressing. I have since scrape away the lip at the front that forms part of the canopy seal. I have scratchbuilt a part to bridge the gap, and the rest will be done with putty. Whilst the oil wash dries over the week, little bits of sub assemblies have come together. I've joined together the main upper parts of the fuselage, filled in panel lines that don't exist, and started scratch building some strengthening plates that were fitted to the block 40s and older to keep them going to 8000 hour rating. These were just mate from the flat bits of sprue that are stamped with tree labels and branding etc. A little rough around the edges, and not as good as PE part but I've spent far too much on this hobby over the last month so I had to draw the line. Once they're cleaned up and primed, they'll just look like part of the kit. To be continued...
  12. Stopped in at Luke AFB in August 1988 while traveling between postings from MoD(UK) back to Edwards AFB. Here's the 302nd TFS Vipers with tail code LR for Luke Reserves. The tail emblem is a devil profile on an outline of a map of Arizona. The unit has since been relocated to Elmendorf AFB in 2007 and is now an associate unit flying F-22s. 86-0212 Those are portable cockpit entry ladders in the foreground. Never really saw them used much. Thanks for looking, Sven
  13. Hi all, If anyone remembers this from 2014, I'm doing another one! This time it's a commission build. I'll be using the same kit (Academy Sufa) and the IsraCast Block 60 F conversion for a UAE Air Force bird. Work starts soon, and I'm going to get back to my usual building pace. Al
  14. Skale Wings is to release a new tool 1/72nd Israeli Air Force Lockheed-Martin F-16D "Barak" kit - ref. IS72001 Source: https://www.facebook.com/skalewings/photos/a.1546834958952699.1073741828.1546827065620155/1560213570948171/?type=3&theater V.P.
  15. Good afternoon, yesterday, I have started to build the Tamiya-F-16. Wow, that's an amazing kit! Must have one of the best surface details I ever saw on a 1/72-kit! It will be a wild weasel Viper as used in Libya 2011 in operation Odyssey dawn. The real thing should look something like this: http://www.f-16.net/g3/f-16-photos/album38/album70/91-0343_001 As no weapons or tanks are included in this kit (I bought the first boxing...), I also got a cheap Hasegawa F-16, from which I will use the ordnance. Decals are from Astra Decals, and the seat is from Quickboost. Alex
  16. Built for a recent club competition, this is the 1/72 Revell F-16 finished off using Daco decals. I've had the decals in the stash for more years than I care to remember, but I'm pleased to report that they worked well enough to sneak this into third place. Standard walkaround shots : Thanks for looking. Mike
  17. Late last year I went on a Viper rampage. Here's the first of them. Kit is the Revell F-16C kit which has all the bits for an early F-16C. The famous Rammstein Dragon is one of the most colorful of all USAF Vipers IMHO and I have always wanted to build it. The decals came from a Superscale set but all the stencils were swindled from an old Revell F-16A boxing, one of the few places one can get hi-viz stencils that were the norm up until the Gulf War (hey decal makers, what are you waiting for?). The aircraft was an early Block 30 which still had the narrow intakes. Gunze paints were used throughout (except 36118 which was Tamiya XF-24) with some light weathering with enamels. I decided to build the Viper unarmed aside from AIM-9s. More Vipers coming soon...
  18. And finally, the last of the trio of Vipers that I finished recently. This is an Academy F-16C Block 42 in the super attractive new Have Glass scheme. I used, for the first time ever, Mr Paint. It went on beautifully although I would have liked it to be a bit darker. I would strongly recommend MRP to anyone else, my only impediment to using more of them is living in a relatively small place in London where ventilation is an issue (it's lacquer-based) and yes, it smells bad. The much-maligned Academy kit has its major issues, namely a nose that is too straight and which shows when looking at it sideways. It comes in either Block 40/50 or 42/52 boxings with different intake/exhaust combos. The Block 40/50's wide intake is horrible, looks like the grin of the Cheshire cat. However, the narrow intake is much better, although I think it is a tad bit too small (about 1mm); still, it looks ok next to the Revell. On the plus side, the Academy is the only Viper kit in 1/72 that includes the holographic HUD that is standard on the Block 40/42s. For that reason alone, I felt I had no choice but to use it, rather than base it on the Revell kit which aside from the HUD also requires the bulged wheel covers, etc. The Academy also has much better fit than the Revell, with less fiddly bits to worry about, like the landing gear which can get tricky on the latter (I have yet to build a modern Revell kit that does not have some landing gear issues). Block 40/42 need strengthening plates, and these were taken from a vinyl set. The decals came from the Caracal sheet which is good... except for the fact that the walkway lines are too short. WAY too short, like 3-4cm more needed to cover the whole airframe. This is rather annoying, coming from a sheet that costs £13.99, it was not that hard to have added enough for two aircraft. I therefore had to mask the missing section (the part beneath the national insignia on the starboard rear fuselage) and paint with Gunze 36495. You won't be able to tell the difference unless you really really look (the painted line is slightly wider than its decaled opposite). Weapons came from the kit. Masking the JDAMs was a bit annoying but looks great in the end (note the instructions do not tell you that the tail of the JDAMs is usually grey too). The kit has a nice assortment of pods too. I left the aircraft with a satin-ish varnish even though it looks flat in the pictures. I need to find a way of replicating the metallic sheen seen on these birds... Finally, for some reason Academy does not want you to build this with an open cockpit, however, this is not too hard to arrange yourself, I was just too lazy and wanted to take pictures of it first. Later I'll find a way of leaving it open. Thanks for looking!
  19. Part II of the late 2017 Viper spree that I just finished off recently, here's another Revell F-16C with markings of "Wild Thang", a Desert Storm bird from Shaw AFB. This was a Block 25 and so had both the narrow intake and P&W engine. A few other bits and bobs had to be corroborated with pictures since Revell's instructions do not account for a Block 25 or 30/32 despite these being the only C blocks that the kit gets right! The aircraft depicted is from the 363rd TFS from Shaw AFB with nose art "Wild Thang". The decals came from an old Hi-Decals set that I had since ages ago. I am not a huge fan of Hi Decals. They are quite thick and register in not that great and so avoided as many as I could (only the unit code, serial, and nose art), with all the other stencils coming from an old Superscale sheet, alas they are not made for the Revell kit and are quite incomplete, notably on all the underside bits. Note that the Shaw birds during Desert Storm did not have the walkway lines painted which saved me some trouble. Paints were all Gunze except 36118 (Tamiya XF-24 instead). The centerline pod and the bombs were taken from a Hasegawa weapons set, as was the TER. Although Vipers use a special TER set, it should be noted that in Desert Storm many of them carried the standard types. I also tinted the canopy with a mix of Tamiya transparent yellow and smoke. So mostly was just to have a Desert Storm viper on the shelf. Looks good anyway!
  20. A long winded title on the label for this one; General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon 'Thunderbirds' USAF Display Team Can be built as a single seater for the Thunderbirds or a 2-seater for the Dutch; I fancy doing this wheels-up as the Thunderbirds version. I've not built a display aeroplane since I built an Airfix 111 sqd Black Arrows Hunter everso long ago Reading my teabags I see a lot of Micro-Sol & Set in the future of this build

    RNZAF F-16CK Block 50 - Painted

    Well I’ve been neglecting this section for a wee while unfortunately and I think there may be a couple of stalled build threads somewhere in here as well!!!! Anyway time to sort of make amends, I hadn’t planned this build at all, it sort of happened as an accident. Well an accident caused by a wally who didn’t check his research before buying stuff for a build!!! That and I still blame Beelzebub for creating that which is call F-16 block numbers!! Only the work of the devil could make them soooo confusing! Anyway the upshot of all this is I have a completely spare F-16 that I didn’t know what to do with. So a solution is a nice simple Whif! So why an RNZAF one (hence the “K”), well I didn’t what another boring grey one and I really like the European 1 camouflage of the A-4K’s. So this is what I have to play with… a Block 52 F-16 I pinched the intake from and the now left over Block 50 intake! I know why not just build the white one as a 52…….well that would be just too easy…and an admission I’d completely stuffed it up in the first place! The colour scheme…well I’ve got a nice set of A-4 decals Gekko Decals on the way (thanks Richard). Weapons loadout….not sure yet, have heaps from the F-111, F1, and F-16 so will have a think about it. I’ll sort of be building this in parallel with the other F-16 which is for the F-16 STGB, so will start this one in a couple of week. Should be a nice simple build, and no mod work!!

    Airshow markings

    Hi, This summer I was very taken with the special schemes worn by the Belgian Airforce F-16 (Stingers) and the French Navy Rafale M. Both would look amazing in on the shelf. does anyone know of any companies that have or are planning to bring these to market? I know Xtradecal cover most British subjects well but not sire who specialises in Belgian or French markings? Thanks.

    Questions about Gulf War Vipers

    Viper experts, a few questions: 1) Were ALQ-119 pods painted white during the Gulf War? Most 80s pictures show them white but I can't really tell from the Gulf War pics if they still remained white or had been painted light grey by then. Also, some pods (namely ALQ-131s) looked quite dark, were they painted 36118 by any chance? Or olive drab? 2) When loading just two bombs on a TER rack, was the layout always outward/center or right/center? The dstorm.eu site has both port and starboard pylons as right/center but I find that a bit odd, but haven't seen a pic of an F-16 head on to confirm. If you don't get what I'm saying, what I mean would be this: BOMB BOMB EMPTY ........... EMPTY BOMB BOMB or EMPTY BOMB BOMB .......... EMPTY BOMB BOMB Thanks!
  24. Hi all. Some may say that this is a new build but in truth it's been around for about 18 months sitting on the shelf of inactivity. I've got a Super Hornet that's on the way but I'll post some photos of that when I get something substantial done that's worth showing. It was in separate top and bottom halves and wings yesterday and this is where I've managed to get it to today (Sunday afternoon). I made a jig to get the wings level which has worked well and will come in handy when mounting gear and other dangly bits. The gear bay has had its white though I now realise I didn't clean the mould seam on the o2??? tank,...that one's onto the fix list. I've also removed and replaced the poorly molded strengthening plates around the arrestor work. I've got some work to do to tidy up the wing root join though that's something that a bit Mr Surfacer won't fix. They're an old kit but the Hasegawa F-16's aren't too bad to put together. This one will be loaded with bombs, rockets and other explody things. Cheers. Mick It'll look something hopefully like this though with live weapons and wing tanks too.
  25. Good day, ppl! Let me introduce one of my earlyer bird. The original of this one was based in Germany, Spangdahlem until the 2nd Gulf War against Iraq in 1991. Flown several air to ground missions in this configuration. After the war this falcon was turned back to the USA and given to the National Guard. The kit itself: With one word: Terrible. Gaps instead of fittings, rough-and-ready details, so classic Italeri. Box nr.: 188 Night Falcon. Quess what, the decal wersions does not match with the "Night Falcon" (Block 40/42) config. Italeri gives Block 32. I used Part's etchted detail sheet and an unknown manufacturer's PUR bang seats. Seats was Ok, but the PE set was rather waste of money. The whole kit has (still have) so much smaller problems that I dont wanted to correct those, simply make something that looks like an F-16D and finished as fast as I could. Painted with Humbrol enamel colours, after photo. Different profile of the two halves: More extra details were needed: Preshadeing: "Have been preshaded": Priming for the metaliser: Metalised: Sidewinders: Done job: The original itself: Hope you liked it.
