Hunting in the East China Sea - Kinetic F-16B & Hasegawa F-2A - 1/48


Recommended Posts

Hi gang. :D 


Last day of the GB, and I did make the deadline with a few hours to spare. :yahoo: 


The Taiwanese F-16 was really almost finished in time for the real deadline.
I just had the HUD and canopy to fix.

And place in the display cabinet.

Together with the extended Israeli family, and a Norwegian cousin.
I now got 12 completed F-16's in my collection, but I've added 5 more to the stash since I started this build, so you'll see plenty of more >F-16's from me in the future.


The Japanese F-2 did require some more work than the F-16.
I sat down this morning after driving my eldest son to the airport and started to glue on the ordnance.
First the drop tanks.

Then the huge ASM-3 anti ship missiles.

Followed by two radar A2A missiles; AAM-4.

And four IR A2A missiles; AAM-5

Flipped it over,

And glued in the HUD and the ejection seat.

And after that on with the three-piece canopy and a pitot tube.

Looks rather heavy and menacing with a full load.

I'll move it closer to it's F-15 cousin's after the renovation of the apartment, for now it's time to start packing them all.
But rest assured; I'll be back with more build in 2023, and more 16's in 2024 when the Viper turns 50. :yahoo: 


Thanks for watching and commenting.
Take care.

Thanks Col. :D

Yes my F-16's has grown to a nice collection, and grew more they shall. 

I like the F-16 as other like the Spitfire, Bf 109, P-51 etc. 

Earlier I built only Israeli F-16's, but since the Norwegian and now the Taiwanese I'll branch out and try to build at least one from every country that flies or have flown it.

That'll take some time. :D

Looks like this will be an endless game if you look at the F-16s ongoing success....Bulgaria and Slovakia to be totally new on the operators list shortly... 😀 

 

 

And who knows, but Ukraine or some Baltic states would also fit the bill....

Lockeed Martin did something right it seems!

The F-16 success is a gift that keeps on giving to F-16 modelers :lol:
