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.

Michael Drover Some fiddly airbrush work this afternoon.

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!

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.
