IAF F-16A Netz - creating the masks, camouflage scheme

Recommended Posts

Well I managed to install the pit and close up the fuselage - fit is not the greatest - not bad - but rather typical of Hasegawa jets of that vintage - such as the F-5E.

I then made my 1st scribing attempt…. not there yet ….. but it will provide something for a wash to adhere to.

The scribing on the body was more complex, due to the blended shape of the F-16….. so it will be missing on some parts….. unless I find a more flexible guide.

 

Might try some demo tape next week.

Looking real nice Sir!!! Are the exhaust nozzles still available to purchase? I wonder if one could make it work on the Tamiya F-16 kit?

Thanks for stopping by Mike.

 

The exhaust is an old CE set, long OOP - it was part of the F-16 kit stash.

 

I'm sure Aires, Wolfpack etc will make better alternatives for the Tamiya kit (if it needs one).

Thanks,  since the Tamiya T-Bird kits are getting pretty tough to locate I was hoping someone in the A/M world may have a Pratt nozzle available. I was lucky enough to score five complete P/Q sprues for the small intake from Tamiya USA but I'm lacking the nozzles to backdate the C/J's that I have lurking in the stash.

I have most of the weapons leftover from my Sufa kit, If there is anything you're looking for to complete the load out on your jet, Send me a message and I'll get them to you.

Well I had some time this weekend to add the wings and fin….. fit is not exactly tamiya…. but not too bad.

 

Difficult to think that this kit must be close to 30 years old now….. wow… I was soooo impressed when it came out.

A few minor gaps, nothing stretched sprue and filler can't handle

 

Added an old CE resin burner can…. the thing is so heavy that I have to be careful that my kit is not a tail sitter…….;)
