F-16C Bahrain Desert Storm 1991, Hasegawa 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

My most recent build, the 1/48 F-16C from Hasegawa. It was the Idolm@ster F-16C with very unattractive markings and yellow plastic. I decided to build her as Bahraini F-16 when used in Desert Storm 1991.

The Hasegawa F-16 has a challenging inlet but whit some filling, sanding and TLC it came out quite nice.

I normally build "old" aircraft so this is my first modern fighter, hope you like it!

That's great, so much better than the Banana Boat it was!

I've not seen a Bahraini Falcon before, so good to see this sleek Viper.

Not one for modern image modelling myself but I must say, this F-16 caught my eye.

Very nice rendition of this well known aircraft. Well done

Saw plenty of stuff flying around out there in 91 but never saw one of these. You have enlightened me.

Yep I'm with Widow 65, that is one of the most elegant F-16 schemes that I've ever seen. Superb clean build.

My god that's disgusting coloured plastic, but a great build at the end of it :thumbsup2:

Great work on the intake as well.
