1/48 Prototype F-16A

Recommended Posts

Built this from the OLD 1975 Tamiya F-16A kit (with the left/right fuselage halves). Good kit for its age, OOTB except for the main gear door actuators. Since the kit is closest to being a prototype, I did the "cloud scheme" of the 2nd one built.

This is the first F-16 I've ever built in spite of several in the stash for decades. I also have "C" almost done. Pics of it soon!

Excellent!

I think that scheme fits the plane nicely.

Great job Gil.

Your airbrushing job looks fantastic. Nice crisp line. May I ask what medium you use as a wash? Your landing gear is awesome.

Thanks for the very kind words folks!

I used the black Tamiya Accent wash on the gear and in the gear bays. I applied as sparingly as possible and let it run around the details. However, all of the panel lines on the model are drawn on in pencil, since the kit's raised panel lines were mostly sanded away while building.
