Dual build Part 1 - Venezuela F-16A - Kinetic 1/48 w/extras added.


Recommended Posts

Hi. :D 

For this GB I plan to build two F-16's
Whatever can one choose during the 50th year of F-16. 


First up a Venezuelan regular line bird using Kinetics newer F-16AM kit that I'll back date to a A-version

I'll use Aztecs decals for it.

I'll dress it with Quinta cockpit decals for an early A-version.

As for ordnance I think it'll be 4 AIM-9L Sidewinders, 6 x Mk82 slicks on the older BRU-3 bomb racks and a belly drop tank.

High Planes Models from Australia make aftermarket Derby missile in both 1/72nd and 1/48th. Very hard to find on the market.

 

Another way to get them in 1/48th is Kinetic newish Kfir C.10 model with Latin american schemes. This model has 2 styrene Derbys included.

Hi Bosse!

So South Americas oldest and newest F-16s! Nice!!

Are those Chilean decals for C/D models, or only the A/B sourced from Europe?

The blue rudder makes me think the latter only...

It covers all versionsnummer from A to D

But if you like the old scheme you'll be pleased to know that they've started to repaint the D to the old scheme after the latest updates. 

But I'll stick with the low wiz scheme myself.

To bad that Argentina hasn't received their F-16's yet. 

This one really begs to be built.

We'll I think I can build one next year if the F-16 STGB goes through.  :D

Well, I'd rather like to have them together for ease of updates, but if I really need to I can.

I've had several multiple builds in other GB's with no problem.

Yes, please, Bosse. The general "rule" in GBs is one thread per build but ultimately it is down to the host. I initiated this, as my first hosting, upon taking advice. I have had to say the same to others in the same situation too. I would appreciate it is the spirit of being fair to all when it comes to the guidelines for the GB. Thank you.  Martin

Thank you, Bosse :). Your builds look really interesting together with the potential for an Argentine machine in a future STGB! :)
