1/48 Tamiya F-16C Viper RSAF "Black Knights"

Recommended Posts

This is my 1/48 Tamiya F-16C Block 52 Viper dressed up in the markings of the Republic of Singapore Air Force's Black Knights aerobatic demo team. 


Base kit used was Tamiya's F-16C/N Aggressor/Adversary kit as it has parts to build all F-16C blocks from 25 through 52. I modded the kit by using the metal pitot and AoA probes from Tamiya's F-16 detail-up set. I also scratch-built the smoke system pipe from the centreline station to the nozzle at the exhaust as well as the HMD sensor on the canopy. The seat was detailed using Fine Molds' plastic seatbelts for ACES II seats. Static discharge wicks were made with stretched sprue. 


I used decals from Miliverse to represent a Viper flown by Lead Solo MAJ Eugene Lim of the RSAF Black Knights demo team. 


Overall a nice build though the decals did give some problems. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Definitely one of the best dressed Tamiya Vipers I've ever seen. Beautiful result.

I like to see these in schemes other than gray. That's a very nice difference to see and a great looking model.
