Another that I'd love to know the full pothential.

Grumman X-29 Forward Swept Wing,  finished like a USAF F-16.

Kit acquired as an exchange for an unwanted Fujimi Skyhawk.

and candidate lo-vix decals.

Here's one that I built in about 1989.

There was a full size model X-29 at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, Washington DC,

when I was fortunate enough to visit in 1994. . . which I thought was a real aircraft.

Nice choice again, i did something similar with my F-20. I built it as an Indiana A.N.G. “Blacksnakes” plane. Looking forward to this will it be air superiority or mixed mission ?

Ah the F-20 Tigershark - another beaut that I built around 1990.

I hadn't given much thought to the mission,   but markings for that F-16B Wolf Pack.

This isn't my first FSW,  here's another I prepared earlier.

An Airfix Lightning F1A, from which I used the wings on another project.

and Humbrol 128 nose, and Humbrol 27 rear fuselage and wings.

No masking for demarcations, airbrushing towards edges, or exercise of the twin-action.

Very quick morning-after phone-photo of decals.

It was all action at TPS  Grove last night! Neighbours directly opposite appear to be away - and one of their kids decided to have a party.

Around 11pm, the Police arrived to break it up - so plenty to watch.

Looks great!  Plus you have settled my internal dilemma of how to orientate the stars-and-bars on a forward-swept wing 🙂
