5 AM:s in (not 50) Shades of Grey - and a B IDF too


Recommended Posts

This sorta attacked me from the bushes. These builds stalled 3 years ago in Rich's F-16 STGB, maybe I got overexcited back then... Now I know this is doable during the whole year long They Also Serve GB. And this is a multi-GB-theme build, though it only includes the BM:s most hated aircraft; not only one but five grey F-16 MLU:s! Which themes, then?

1) Nordic; Denmark, Inherent Resolve

2) Small Wars; Norway, Odyssey Dawn

3) 90's NATO; The Netherlands, Allied Force

4) Yanks Abroad; Belgium, Tiger Meet

5) KUTA (yes); Portugal, Baltic Air Policing

Edit: 6) Italy, no specific ops

I'll describe the specific planes better, later. I try to show the differences (!) in their grey camouflage and change in weaponry in last close to 20 years.

Well, not 50 shades, but... Plenty.

All things F-16. Including a pair of Mavericks too.

Good luck! That is pretty crazy - five same models at the same time. Most I've done is three :D

 

Will be interesting, though! Are they all the same model kit btw?

Well I have been crazy enough to try building 5 747s, 2 of which are conversions and 4 are Whifs at the same time and then start building an il-86 Whif as well so, all the best with this endeavour!

:yahoo:it took only three years to assemble the cockpits and attach them to fuselage upper halves. I must do some paint repairs here and there, that ACES II is a really tight fit in the narrow tub. V-P
