For this GB I will be building a Navy Adversary the F-16N  - probably the best Adversary Jet the Navy have had :)

 

 KIt : Tamiya 1/48th Scale  F-16C/N 

AM Parts:  Tamiya US F-16 Detail Parts, Aries Exhaust, Aries Under Carriage Bays & Quinta Studios 3D Cockpit 'Decals' 

 

Photo's of Box , Sprues to follow .... when the AM Goodies arrive ( since this is a @trickyrich led GB .... AM goodies are required ;)  :P )

welcome along and good man!!

 

You're in my good books, I love the AM list......... so far! :D

 

Looking forward to seeing the scheme you've chosen, there are so many good ones to choose from.

 

Good luck with the build.

And the Box / Sprue piccy - After looking through the instructions the only parts from the F-16 Detail set I would use on the  F-16N  are the Pitot and AoA probes so the posty delivered the 'Master Models F-16 Pitot and AoA' package this morning - I will save the Detail set for a F-16C Block 30,32 or 42 Viper which I am sure I will build one day ! 

 

The Aries Undercarriage set looks yummy and detailed

At my build speed - the 2nd one would still be under 25% at the 75th Anniversary STGB :P🤣

Next steps - apply the '3D decals' to the seat - seal everything with some X-22 Gloss then apply some wash, i must remember even though they were well used the F-16N's were kept clean :)

 The Powder Puff Scheme was meant to look like one of the  SU-33  schemes . there was also a TopGun F-14A painted in that scheme
