Michael Drover All done and now my favourite in the display cabinet.
22. August at 23:48:32
Neuling This one would be my favourite too!

Gordon Sørensen Great looking Tucano, Michael! The painting is fantastic!
23. August at 20:57:38
Hans Robben Very nice result in a not often seen livery
23. August at 21:00:27
Slavo Hazucha Nice "factory fresh" finish build. The details look crisp, but my hero is definitely the excellent clear & shiny one-piece canopy

Michael Hickey Saw this Rhino at Avalon a few years ago, very nice Michael.

Michael Drover Another one complete. Shame about the shallow intakes, but otherwise it's a great kit to build.

Treehugger Look good. Too bad photos are clipped. I don't think it was necessary here unless you wanted to zoom in even closer I think.
10. June at 07:36:59
Michael Drover I think these are from my Instagram account Treehugger. I need to dig the originals out.

Michael Drover The plan for this week was to have decals on the F-16. Happy to have them at 95% on Saturday night. I've had a look at the pictures of the Thai jets and the radon is significantly darker with a touch of green in it. I'll fix that tomorrow and also paint the IFR as I missed the bit when painting. Once done I can do the few stencils on the nose and the IFR guide.

You can see the carrier film of the Siam Scale decals in the photo of the tail. Not the greatest but nothing some additional clear and mild sanding won't fix.

Patrick Hagelstein Unless you are modeling a specific jet at a specific time, I wouldn't be worried too much about that radome. All radomes are the same when new but due to the rubbery coating they collect a lot of dirt and grime while flying. Any shade from bright grey to almost black is correct at any given time. There are even pictures out there where crew chiefs rubbed their radome clean in a pattern or 'painting' to recognize their jet coming off the flight line.
9. June at 00:42:43
Michael Drover Some fiddly airbrush work this afternoon.
9. June at 10:09:19
Michael Drover I know the jets you're talking about Patrick. I've seen one with flames marked on the radome. This jet is a well used one so Im going to grotty up more than what I've done so far. More work this week!
9. June at 10:18:08
Slavo Hazucha Great progress, this is just getting consistently better & better Looking forward to see the engine & further details before it all blends into a grande finale!
9. June at 10:46:08
Maciej Bellos Niiiiiice! Impressive weathering on the tailbase.
9. June at 11:06:32
Jos Jansen That's a nice Viper B...
9. June at 13:20:42
Michael Drover Thanks Slavo, Maciej and Jos. The Thai jets have a lot of scope when it comes to dirtying them up. Not as much as the Greek jets though. I want t do one of theirs eventually.
