HI all,

Just thought I would share this one that's been on my workbench for the past few weeks but I never got around to posting here...an OOB build of Revell's F-16 Tigermeet '09

The big decal sheet that doesn't quite fit inside the box!! (note the bend in it)

Started with the cockpit and apart from seatbelts, all OOB. Drybrushed the panels instead of using the kit decals..

This kit really falls together nicely, just the odd area to watch out for the fit..

Simple one colour paint scheme of Gunship Grey applied with a brush (first coat)

And the underside masked up for the light grey bit..

Started the decal work on the drop tanks, to see how they worked. Really nicely printed by Daco and settled down lovely with some MicroSol..

And then on to the airframe!

Did I say the decals were lovely? Well, they are but they're oversized for the kit and needed endless trimming and re-fitting to get them to work.

And MicroSol for the curves..

And with the doors removed...

And how she looked the other night....the tail decal was a bit of a bear to fit

More updates tonight hopefully!

Thanks for looking.
