Hi all,

Haven't build a Hasegawa F-16 before, are there things to watch out for while building?

Nice, built one a few years ago and certainly don't remember having any issues at all.

Think this kit has been around since the mid to late 80's as I built a few for a friend way back then and remember being impressed with the quality of moulding in both detail and fit.

Looks to be plenty nice options on that decal sheet as well :coolio:

Some small progression on this one.

Been building the cockpit.

Not sure if I build it with pilot in the seat or make some seatbelts with tape.

Don't see many pilot figures in kits these days so I say go for it.

Some more progress. Will need to speed this build up if I want to get it done before my vacation but the F-104 is almost done so can focus on this one.

I'm beginning to think this one will not be ready for the deadline due to a trip to RIAT and a vacation but I will do my best.

Coming along very nicely Lex, I'm sure you will get her over the finish line in time.

You never know we might bump into each other at RIAT!

Ok, just realized the deadline isn't 14th of july but it is august so I'm going ahead with this one.

Painted all the colours just before RIAT.

Pictures will follow soon.

Nice smooth paintwork. Looks a great surface to get the decals onto.

Have some trouble with the decals.

The aftermarket decals don't have the stencilling so I ordered the stencilling.

I hope they will arrive before the deadline.
