Hi Guys,

My F-16C Block 30 in the Blue Splinter camo scheme of the 18th Aggressor squadron, Eielson AFB, Alaska.

Absolutely gorgeous finish is fantastic and all the better for being in flight. Did you make the stand yourself?

 

I'm not used to seeing amraams on aggressors, is this a thing? Certainly makes the model more interesting

Thanks Notty, yes the base is just some aluminium tube and a wooden flooring sample.

 

The instructions only called out for the AIM-9 and ACMI pod, but then I saw this pic (https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9259493) which also shows the AIM-120's. I decided to go with that as prefer the look, although I didn't add the external tanks..

I maintained that Viper when she was assigned to Kunsan AB, South Korea! Outstanding work!!

Thank you Sir. :)

 

I guess that was before she was in the Splinter. Was it the Flanker scheme, or even earlier?

Great scheme and build. Really fine job on the exhaust too, btw.

That is an absolute cracker!  The finish is excellent, especially the splinter camo and jet pipe.  Well done

Lovely Viper, especially in the blue scheme. :worthy: Superb painting.

Now that is an unusual and equally brilliant F-16. I love this camo scheme, I've wanting to build one for years but haven't dared it so far.

Also unusual to see an airplane model in flight. I think most people believe it's a "waste", because one doesn't get to see much of the cockpit, I guess. But now that I see yours, I am changing my mind. It's totally worth it, gives a very special tone to it. Airplanes are made to fly, after all. :)

 

Great job!!!

Cheers guys. ;)

 

I like to model them in flight. It's true you don't get to see much of the cockpit, but then if it's wheels down you don't get to see much of the undercarriage or ordnance.

 

The previous 3 I built have also been in flight.
