Thanks Michael, Marko, Ulf, Erik, Dale, Harry, Lex, Ed, John, Stephan, Holger, Günther, Maciej, Mike, Murad, and James! I am really stoked to get all these great compliments!
I am happy with this although I did make a couple boneheaded errors, most noticeable is the fact that the pods right by the intake opening by "69" should not be there. I went by the Tamiya instructions for a Block 32 aggressor and didnt even look at my reference material before attaching (and painting, GASP!) them. By then it was too late. The camo was too complicated to try to fix if I tore those bad boys off. So I left them.
Erik, the bluish tint is created like this: First, gloss black primer, followed by Alclad Airframe Aluminum. Then I sprayed random spots of Gold Titanium for a slight goldish hue in areas. Then I used Alclad Hot Metal Blue at differing intensities around the ring to give it that "Heat Stressed Titanium Blue" look.
Eelco, the Masks were an absolute necessity. I would not have attempted this scheme without them. It was not all rainbows and unicorns though, as they are a bit rigid and the contours of the F-16 do not lend themselves to easy masking regardless, especially around the intake area. If someone was going to do this scheme, I would say the SB masks for this are a must have.
