1/32nd F-16I SUFA IAF Tayeset 119 “The Bat Squadron”


Recommended Posts

This was built for the F-16 STGB which is currently in progress. I have always wanted to build one of these but thought it would be a 1/48th version, however one of these popped up at a price I couldn’t refuse.

 

If many years ago built the original Hasegawa 1/32nd version, which was a nice model, this one is really nice, not quite Tamiya level but enjoyable to build.

 

People that know me know I can’t help myself with AM bits, 2 AM bits I highly recommend for this model, the ResKit Exhaust Can a vast improvement over the kit supplied one. Quinta Studio cockpit decals……what more can you say, for a cockpit this exposed a must.

 

The only other bit I would recommend is the Zactomodels resin intake, this resin part completely replaces the intake and intake trunk. This resin part fits perfectly and gives you a lovely seamless intake, plus shape wise I think it looks a bit better than the kit one.

 

All in all a very enjoyable build with a model I highly recommend to anyone interested in F-16’s or IAF aircraft.

 

Attached is a link to the build, enjoy and thank you for looking.

Very beautiful! And a cool color sceme. I would say perfect weathering and it seems to be worth to use these Quinta 3D decals.

Fantastic work! 
 

Cheers
