F-16 C/J 1:48 Tamiya

No build progress for this one. I was just in a groove and didn't feel like documenting any progress. She went together pretty well for a 14-ish year old kit. I had fun with this one and I was able to use the kit decals that represent my local Air Force base, Shaw AFB.

Nice job, chops. Shaw AFB is local to me too! But, my Tamiya F-16CJ does not have Shaw decals!

Great looking color tones across her!

In the pattern: Lindberg's 1/48 Snark and Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! Started my Prince of Wales for the Ships of the British Flag GB...oh and I bought another P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo!

She turned out great!  Big F-16 fan.  Your finish looks great - great modulation.

Wonderful job! I love the Viper. The block 52 is something else. I have a few friends who fly with Shaw. I can't think of a more intense mission than that of a wild weasel.

14 rears old,but in the same class as their superb Tomcat and P-38

But I echo the others that it looks great,nice clean job.

I did one from the Indiana ANG with Super Bowl Commemorative decals.
