Viper Mania Part I - 1/72 Revell F-16C Rammstein Dragon

Recommended Posts

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... ;)

Cracking model and great subject, really like it! I think my favourite USAFE F-16 markings, I have the same build planned in 1/48 sometime. Agree on the early stencils too, every USAF F-16 sheet seems to be low-vis post Block 30 these days.

Until I saw one fly last year I was never an F-16 fan, so I'd never seen the Rammstein Dragon before. What a cool piece of art! I'll have to look up the real deal to compare but I quite like your model. Bravo!
