F-16C

This was an unexpected build. While waiting for paint to dry on the C-54, I started fiddling with the F-16 parts of this kit. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the dry fit went. Next thing I knew, I was painting the cockpit and there ya go.

Fit was great considering this is a model from 27 years ago. Decals showed their age, but I mostly got them to work for me. No stencils or any guidance for the missiles, so I kept them rather simple. And I weatherd the snot out of her.

I rather enjoyed this one and really like how it turned out. Now back to the 54...

Very cool! Got this and another early Revell tooling 1/48 F-16 in the stash. Looks like pretty decent builds. Unfortunate that that airframe was trucked to Davis-Monthan following a mishap during a Red Flag exercise @ Nellis AFB:

It is a great kit. Not overly detailed, but not bad. Fit was fine. Weapons leave a bit to be desired though.

Yes, reminds me of a scene of WWIII from the 'Wingman' series of books!
