F-16C - 18th Aggressor Squadron, 354 Fighter Wing


Recommended Posts

This kit is my first official post of 2021( I have finished a bunch of 1/48 vehicles and figures, but this is my first wing thing) I should call it Lazarus as this thing has been resurrected from the dead multiple times. It started as a Thunderbirds livery, but the white paint started cracking to the point I had to strip it completely. Then something clouded the canopy and I had to refinish/polish it back to something barely acceptable. Then a barn cat found its way in the house and the pitot, landing gear and tail had to be repaired. On and on and on. I have a rule that I never leave a book or model unfinished. 

 

But...I decided to try something different using my cricut to cut some patterns. 

 

A few days late for 4-1-21, but hope you enjoy.

Your work is amazing, I'd love to do a scheme like this in the future. Cricut machines are a proper handy piece of kit!

My eyes! My eyes! Not my scale, but that is one incredible example of masking...and patience! Glad you stayed with this one, as in spite of all the destruction and frustration along the way, you ended up with a model with which you can be proud! 👍
