I’ll probably keep the kit scheme on the Academy, going to have to find something interesting for the LS. I’ll start chipping away but I reckon I won’t really get going properly till I’ve got my two F16s done.

And I thought 1/72 was too tiny for my fingers!

Funnily enough 1/48 is my default scale for exactly that reason, but I’ve taken to 1/144 as a nice scale for modern jets.

Have you figured out the second scheme ? There are plenty of colorful Japanese options if you wish to retain the decals ? If not there is always Israeli, Greek, Turkish, “E’s” and you could always attempt to make it an German “F” or an USAF “G”.

Darn a whisker away from done. For some reason I thought the GB still had weeks to run.


1. Gear doors

2. wheels

3. pylons

 

That’s all that’s left.
