The Tamiya is just what you need Jos. And as you have built one already, it will go easily!
Thats a nice warm up for the group build, following!
I also teak a seat 🙂
Guys...you can follow my WIP in my album:
DONE !! | Indonesian Air Force F-16C Block 25 | Album by Banshee13 (1:48)
With the AGM-65's how did you get the join between the main part and back part of the missile parallel and perfectly lined up?

What a nice blue Scooter!
Check the left wing tip, just next to the slat, from my phone it looks a bit green.
Thx guys for your great reactions...you're welcome everyone!
@ Maciej...that's correct but I still have to put the navigation lamps on the wing tips 😉
So you have a green light ready... you are cunnning!
Looking fantastic already Jos 👍
Oh yeah, that's looking great Jos. You have me digging in the stash and looking at Scooters. 😁

Erg mooi model, lat ligt toch behoorlijk hoog op ESM.
Thx Frank and Mark...(in Dutch), Folkert de open uitlaten komen uit een Academy kit.
Stunning work Jos, love it ! 👏
Very nice iconic model, congrats!
Outstanding Eagle Jos, congratulations.

Very nice scheme, really looking forward to this one!
Me too Mark, one drawback, the model is really a "Shitty" Hawk kit. 😄
I love the paint scheme.. will watch and hope 😄
There is something with that black and grey combination that looks always attractive, I was busy with a JA-37 with that double Black V and a picture of a horse at the underside, but couldn't handle the 1/48 Viggen of Esci, put it on hold halfway, stil have the decals. Anyway, good luck with the K Hawk kit
Looking forward once you start this, with the paint scheme it is bound to be a looker.

Looking good. The Gunze colors seem to be working well.
IAF colors still in progress...a three-color camouflage is difficult to airbrush 😄
Coming together nicely
Slow-cooked´s best, and this one is picking up the colors nicely! 👍 Everything spot on - at least to my eye - tone & saturation, looking forward to the treacherous sand shades of the Sinai desert... 😉
Great idea, coloring these spoons!

Thanks Roland, still my F-14 is on my bench at home...this weekend hopefully finishing the decals!
@Slavo, your comment is always nice to read, it has something poetic ... haha! I'm not a great commenter myself, but nevertheless I can really appreciate this, my friend! I still have a bunch of models on my shelf of doom. This Super Tucano is actually my first prop model, I finally want to get it ready. It is a super model from Hobbyboss, a little gem.
@WhiteGlint....thx, stay tuned...
Checking in late 👍
While waiting for some ordered PE seatbelts for my Tomcat and the final photoshoot, I decided first to finish this Brazilian 'samba festival' before starting a whole new project... 👍!
Still not finished - good, so I can mingle IN with some "wisdom" before the prop starts spinnin... 🙂
Very much looking forward to see this birdie with all that brass galore done & in color 👍
Somehow missed this, but looks like I am not too late to the party. And your progress so far looks great! 👍
Have the same kit in my stash with a bit more aftermarket and already started it, but I decided to tackle the Eurofighter first and do that afterwards. Will certainly be a "break" after my "current large scale construction site" of a build 😄 .

Just saw an add for this mask set. Might be of interest to you.
Thanks Gidge, I've already perfect decals from Yellowhammer for it...but thanks anyway! BTW that masking set is for a F-4...lol
I figured most of the hard to replicate stuff is the same (the cursive Blue Angles text etc). The rest can be done by scanning the decal shed and printing it out on a masking sheet and cutting it out

Dag Jos, weer een knap staaltje van vliegtuigmodeling. Steeds een plezier om de foto's te zien.
You sure deserve that award. Beautiful bird, Congratulations 👍
This takes me back to my years at Coningsby in the early 80's. Congratulations on the award.
Amazing work mate!!!

Thanks Alexander en Tim...appreciate it!
Extraordinary result Jos! Perfectness overall, as we say in Dutch; I'm looking for nails at low tide! But off course there aren't any 🙂
That's what I call an excellent job ! Congrats
Thanks, Erik and Stéphane!
@Erik...perfectness is sometimes a pain in the ass 😄
Beautiful job Jos, a great looking CAT. well done sir.

Love it! Fantastic work... And love the French jets - always so stylish
Very clean and careful work in good presentation!
Thx guys, ... there are a lot of flaws in this model build. This Mirage was my second kit after being absent from modeling for 25 years.
I have improved my technique enormously in recent years, I find the accentuated panel lines way too exaggerated, this should be much more subtle. I have learned a lot from this build and have tried different techniques and paints.
A follow-up Mirage 2000C is definitely on the way with my current experience...👍!
Wonderful work Jos. Allways like the Mirage jets and you've build this older Italeri kit into a great presentation.
Well, it seems you kept your skills even after 25 years - looks really good nonetheless. 👍
good job !
That's an attractive looking build Jos 👍 I've been considering building the 2 seater myself shortly
Thx Ferry, Alexander, Stéphane and James...to many credits guys!
@James, oh that's absolutely also one on my bucket list!

To finish my F-14A Tomcat from the Jolly Rogers I am going to add a flight deck of the USS NIMITZ.
See the link below to my finished Tomcat project:

I'm so in on this one!😉👍
