1/48 F-16AM RNLAF Demo Jet (Tamiya Conversion)

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Already finished last November, i only now found time to take pictures.

It is a model of the demo jet of the Royal Netherland Air Force, as it flew in 2013, flown by capt. Stefan "Stitch" Hutten.

 

The WIP thread is here:

 

As a basis,  I used the Tamiya Thunderbirds kit. To convert it into an A(M) model, i used the KASL set, which fitted fantastic. Only the tip of the vertical tail had to be made into an A tail, because KASL had a C shaped tip.

Other aftermarket accessoires:

Tamiya detail set (pitot tube, AOA probes, stiffener plates)

Aires exhaust

KT Model Resin Works Smokewinders

Master Models static dischargers

 

And of course decals from Syhart.

The decals for Capt. Huttens helmet are self made.

 

I used the piants from Mr. Paint, which are made specifically for this jet. The lighter orange is a two layer paint, the first providing the orange base color, the second adds the metallic sparkle.

Beautiful work!

 

The Perspex rod that the aircraft is mounted on, did you bend it yourself or can you buy them like this! I ask as I want to do much the same with a Starfighter in the near future.

 

Thanks

I bent the rod myself. This can be done easily with a heat gun. However, you have to heat it up slowly, turn it round and round, until you can bend it. If you heat it too much, you will get bubbles in the perspex.

 

Cheers,

Markus
