Academy F16

At the very bottom of the single subforums, there is a field with options on what threads should be shown. The default is that just topics that were active the last 30 days are shown. Set this to a higher value, and voila, have fun retrieving your own thread from long ago ;)

As a quicker alternative, you should be able to find it via your profile, IIRC

 

But there are a few more specialists who haven't gotten behind that little detail yet.

Hey there Ian

 

Your F 16 is looking good so far. What scheme are you going to paint her up in?

 

Thanks for sharing and hope to see more progress soon.

 

Cheers

 

Richard. ;)

Hi all.

 

Just a quick note, today I finished the landing gear assembly, oob, at last. A lot of little peices to make a good loking set of legs.

 

I put a base coat on the lower half of the fuselage and wings too.

 

I will hopefully post some more pictures by the weekend.

 

Thanks

Ian

Hi all,

 

I put paint on the bird today in the light grey underside, and all the other parts that are the same colour. I have also started to paint the munitions, which are a slightly darker shade of grey. I think tomorrow I will get the top half painted too, so then I will post pictures so you can see some progress as she starts to look like a falcon!

 

I am going to start also tomorrow with the paint and assembly of the engine, and the radar, which will be on display.

 

Thanks

 

Ian

Type: F16

Scale 1/32

Manufacturer : Academy

Your aim in this build: Get it finished so I can start something else

What stopped build? Work and stuff, kind of lazy too I guess.

What do you think would help you build get through to completion: Persiverence and some time to myself to get it done.

Hi all,

 

I have taken some pictures at last. I think I may beat the dead line at this rate. Yeehaw!!!

 

f16d.bmp

 

I think the 100k we are allowed to use for uploads is abit tight, I can only get one at a time in. Oh well.

 

Please do comment.

 

Thanks

Hi all,

 

Here's another one. Why can't I see the picture??? HELP.

 

f16d.bmp

 

Thanks

Ian

 

I think your picture trouble may be due to saving them as .bmp bitmap files rather than jpegs.

Or not.... :lol:

Hi again all,

 

This is how she looks at the moment, I am now going to concentrate on panel lines and weathering, and then decide which armament to put on. I also have a few gaps to tidy up.

HI The photos are kinda small but what I see in them is looking great. You have me thank about starting the one I have but OH yes I have a full work bench at the moment. I guess I'll just have to wait a while.

Same old, same old, just a little bigger. Disaster has struck though, when I was fiddling with it earlier I dropped her. I have to cement the rear stabiliser and and one air brake to get it back. Also I have to re position the nose cone. Doh! Mighty unhappy.

 

I think when I used Irfanview, it has ruined the image quality? How weird.
