  1. Because I can't keep a promise to myself, I've decided to do a quick and nasty build of an Italeri F-16 for this GB. Not my favourite type, but certainly a popular choice in the 1:1 world. My interest in Fighting Falcons is purely in their use as canvases for Tiger Meet markings - as most will be aware, there have been some truly fantastic bits of artwork done over the years. This won't be one of them. I'm doing Italeri's F-16C/D 'Night Falcon' kit in the plain old 3-tone grey camo that was the F-16's dowdy delivery feathers , with nowt but small red and white roundels, serials and a teeny tiny Danish flag on the tail to break up the boring grey expanse - no show ponies here, tyvm. Hang on, the title says 'F-16A'. Yes indeedy it do - Italeri made maximum use of their moulds and basically supplied all the bits needed to do all the early Falcons in one box, all stemming from kit #130 (I think). Not very well done mind you, but done. In my stash raiding, I also found a different version (F-16A/B 'Nato Falcon') of the same kit that I'd started as a Dutch twin seater, and for some weird reason (I can only blame youth and ignorance, because it was started many years ago), I'd cut off the leading edge of the wings, with the obvious intention of making them drooped. It didn't work. None of the slots I cut line up, and it's... not nice. As a consequence, I'm going to use a set of wings from yet another Italeri F-16 on the 2 holer and finish it while I do the single seat Danish bird, seeing as I'll have all the boring greys out anyway. At least the Dutch bird will be prettier to look at, with a decorative motif applied to her tail. I may post tiny updates on her, but I won't be entering the Dutch one in the GB, wrong era (1998, and not very well built, either ). At the very least she'll be sometimes visible in the background, no doubt. Now follow along carefully, this might get confusering (move your lips if you need to...) I'm going to use the markings from the Danish aircraft in the 'Nato Falcon' box on the 'Night Falcon' kit, along with the instruction sheet. The stencils &c will have to come from the 'Night Falcon' kit, because the 'Nato Falcon' ones will be going onto the Dutchy. The Danish aircraft I'm (badly) (mis-)representing will be E-198, specified on the instructions as being with Esk723. Which, according to F-16.net, she was, between Jan 84 and Sept 88. I think that fits the timeframe nicely. As an aside, has anyone here ever looked at F-16.net? Amazing piece of work, if not a little obsessive. Useful though, for thems of us as know nothing about lawn darts. Next post, the thing will start, all proper-like.
