F-16 Alaska Aggressor 1/48 Revelogram
Posted by TheMongoose on Saturday, April 14, 2018 9:19 PM

So I’m helping the parents out thos weekend and figured I needed something to do in the evening. I ve had this Revologram F-16 Thunderbird for quite a few years, bet the kids have been wondering if I’d ever build this Fathers Day present...well it’s on this weekend. 

my intent is to get the cockpit painted and the model assembled. Then during the week I can do all the painting.

Check out the picture in the instructions, I looked through all the sprues for the switch panels on either side of the cockpit before i realized there were no numbers associated with them haha, fooled me. it just blank WTH.

So, decided to try and paint something that would look good in this scale. Wish my hands were steadier lol Turned out more like a Monet, wasn’t he the guy who painted with dots? You can see the dots close up but from far away they look like a picture!

On the bench - 1/48 Revell PT-17, and a 1/32 T-38 Thunderbird custom build.

Nice workaround. Looking at the instructions online http://manuals.hobbico.com/rmx/85-5326.pdf , there should be decals for the consoles and IP.

They must have gone cheap on the rebox I have! No decals for the console ☹️ Sad Even the instructions i have don’t call them out like they are on the link. 

Here’s another fun one - there’s no positive alignment tab for the tail. It’s like they mixed and matched kits and didn’t notice this. the tail doesn’t sit well by itself so I will have to make one when i get home. Guess I’ll be finished later in the week.

Fit on the rest of the plane has been pretty good overall. Just a little cleanup on the gear bay doors has them all closed with nice lines. 

Here’s the standard pic showing her profile. This will be as far as I can go for now. Later tonight I’ll probably add the tail if the kids don’t have a to-do list with dad lol

Coming along nicely, and a great way to spend spare time.

I’ve managed two short days at the bench in the last couple weeks. Too much going on outside and with the kids to focus any time on models unfortunately. Got a cahnce to put the primer on her yesterday. Today i picked up the vallejo paints i needed for the camo so maybe over this long weekend i can finish up the paint and get ready for decals :-)
