1/48 Tamiya F-16C 64th AGRS - DONE


Recommended Posts

Started the decalling. A lot of work because of the different colors used for the black and grey but I think somebody made a fault when drawing the camo pattern....

Unfortunately there are no reserve white decals so will have to find some other way to get the white lines and stencils.

some fine work with thin masking tape and then a spray gun will sort that out!

 

Plus it'll look a 1000% better than any decal would. I've done that before of a 1/48th F-16, it's really quite a simple task, and so worth the wee bit of extra work!

 

These panel lines and the IFR markings (now they were a bit harder, so use the decals!!!) were all done with masks. It's actually quite a simple job, easily done on /48th or even 1/72nd, and they look so much better decals! Just careful cut off the stencilling bits.

If the lines were 1 color I would have tried that but with the different colors I don't think I can do that.

 

With some cutting and some other decals I managed to finish the lines;

Go on be brave young man, what could possible go wrong!  :D

 

Though you've done a great job with the decal dissecting.

And this one is done! Tamiya F-16 kits are a joy to build and so this was an easy build, some errors which were my own fault.

well done and congratulations on such a fine build! :thumbsup:

 

I saw this one pop up in the gallery and this is the first chance I've had to comment.

 

It's a great scheme and she looks awesome in it, plus you got a great finish on her, you should be very proud.

 

Thanks for joining the build I hope you enjoyed it.
