This is my first ever armor build. I have done only WWII era planes up to now (and one WWI biplane that I botched beyond mentioning). I got this kit just to see how I liked it and I must say I enjoyed it quite a bit! It was a tremendously straight forward kit - not a single build problem at all. Painted in Mission Models olive drab FS34088 (they make about 6 shades of US olive drab). Aside from a little postshading, weathering is all with oils. As this is my first attempt at this type of kit, I would very much like to hear some constructive criticism. I feel that I have over weathered a bit, but that's a constant concern coming from aircraft. I did plan on doing the tank commander figure that comes with the kit, but he had a little misadventure, and I'm waiting for a replacement part to come from Tamiya in order to finish that portion. Thanks for looking!
I thought with all the F-16s being built, I would add one more to the mix: I bought this shortly after it came out. It is primarily the Academy plastic with some new resin parts. Although not 100% accurate, I plan to build it OOB. Carl
