I'm not sure if it is gonna be one from Russia, Poland or Yugoslavia. But surely an out of the box build with some scratchbuilding.

Thanks a lot guys.
Camouflage is Mr Color C305,302,303 with highlights of same color with some extra white in it. I found out that because of the heat of the sun, the fs36081/C301 was a little bit too dark on this scale, so after all I used FS36118 for this, maybe not totally correct but it turned out to be a little bit more faded as the way I wanted it to be. I saw a coloured drawing of the A-10A which looked good with the fs36118.

@ Laurent: I don't know how to post a picture here in the textbox, but I've added another photo of an A-10A concerning the colors, picture nr 39.

Very nice Mark! Awesome 👍!

Patrick Hagelstein
In the A-10 picture the charcoal grey looks extremely faded. If I compare your build to the cover picture (the one in flight), it looks spot on to me. 👍

After quite a few years I decided to start again with this beautiful hobby, bought a compressor and airbrush gun, crossed my fingers en started this F-16 that I saw in a book when I was about 13 years old.. The Hasegawa kit was a while in my stash, so it was about time to get this ons done.

Yellow is on with a white primer underneath, I’ve decided glueing the flaps and slats later on for a little easier polis...

Mark, this is definitely a great modeling report for all Blues enthusiasts. I also have this Kinetic kit in my stash and when I am ready I will definitely apply your recommendations and tips & tricks. Currently, I'm building an A-4F Skyhawk from the Blues and I'm also going to try the 50:50 ratio with the Gunze C5, which looks exactly like the Tamiya X-4 that I have in stash. I just don't know how these two paints, the Gunze C328 and Tamiya relate to each other and whether they will split? I'm going to give this a try, I got this two-color mix through an acquaintance at FB.

Still, I find that if you spray the Gunze C328 on a light primer in thin layers, this blue color is not that dark at all and certainly approaches the Blues blue. Over the years they have had many different colors of (commercial) blue colors, and I have a suspicion that the blue color has become lighter and brighter on the Hornets ...!

I also have many photos from 2006 of the Blues at Leeuwarden Air Base, on all photos the blue color seems very bright, but that can also be very distorted by the digital color processors in the modern digital cameras.

Thanks Jos, I will try to get as much info as possible in my album about the Kinetic kit.
About the color C328: I think it will do for 1:32 scale (there is a great website of the naritafamily.com with a blue angel hornet on 1:32) but will be a little dark for 1:48 scale I guess; you're absolutely right that over the years there were different kind of blues. Maybe it works better on a white primer indeed.

There are pictures with a brighter blue and also with darker blue, also the yellow on top is sometimes brighter looking in the sun than the CAM decals are.
I think I'm brighten up the yellow a bit, except under the wing-line and on the outside of the tails where the big yellow aircraft number is painted which parts of the plane are a bit in the shadow.

About mixing: I've tested once Tamiya Acrylic with Mr Color, but it didnt mix well, there were air bubbles on the painted surface, but I must say that was with a brush. I would stick with Mixing the 2 Mr Color in this case. (However, thinning Tamiya Acrylics with mr Color leveling thinner works really good...)

Great work. Looks like a challenging kit.
11. April, 14:11
Mark D
Thanks Nathan, I thought that this kit would be a fast build but definitely not for me with my basic skills, keep learning this way, just attacked the kit and going for it 🙂
