Kinetic 1/48 F-16AM D-Day Anniversary


Recommended Posts

This is the Kinetic F-16AM in 1/48 scale. Ididn't find it the easiest kit and as there are lots of options, I think there are more parts left over than I actually used. Finished in Hataka red range acrylics and with the excellent Syhart decal sheet depicting FA-57 as it appeared at Fairford in 2019. The artwork is superb.

That's a real eyecatcher. Its beautifully built and subtly painted. 

 

The decals, on the other hand are perhaps a bit stark. The dead black and white stripes really seem overpowering. I'd suggest a light grey wash to slightly tone them down to match the rest of the paintwork.

That came out great,I have the same decal set in my stash,curious about how the decals went on,were they a nightmare to handle,did they fit,a lot of trimming necessary ?

Nice work and a wonderful scheme! :worthy:

 

I especially appreciate this build as I have their family model--way too many options resulting in some very sketchy parts fit.

The decals are great. The stripes fit perfectly. They do tend to stick where they are put so careful positioning is recommended.

 

Thanks for the comments folks. Much appreciated.
