A most interesting project and I love when things from the past pop up like this! Keep up the work, there is just eleven left to do !

I have had a project in my mind about European Starfighters (Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, West Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey and finally Canada who flew them here in Europe even if they aren't a European country). It has stayed in my mind as for now at least ! I have however bought all the kits (second hand, none of them more than five Euros) and all the decals I need (a bit more expensive but not too bad either...). So much for long-term projects !



That's pretty cool Magnus. When you say West Germany, I assume you mean Luftwaffe and Marineflieger, right?

Tim, Jester, Damo, thankyou for the kind words. Next up will be either an Israeli Barak for the Israel campaign, or more likely a block 50 in the new Have Glass 5 scheme (I have a bottle of the Hataka paint I want to try out)

Awesome project Neil, this will already make a great display and conversation piece, and just keep getting better!
It must be the week for “necro threads” as you put it, I’ve just revived my Chev vs Hemi thread from 2015 as well!

Looking forward to the next chapter.

Cheers, D

F-16C Block 30. 527th Aggressor Squadron, RAF Bentwaters 1989. Tamiya 1/48 Aggressor boxing, Afterburner Decals, Tamiya metal detailing set.



Collection now stands at 5/16!

Great idea! Neil.

A little inspiration, I built this for the Anything goes campaign. It's the old Tamiya kit.

Cheers Rob.

Neil,
That's just a fantastic picture of the 1/144 scale F16 sitting on the top of the 1/48 scale F16. It really gives one a great comparison, and how accurately you were able to reproduce that camo paint scheme.

Well, not part of my 1/48 line-up, but I have recently finished a 1/144 Viper using the new Trumpeter kit. I would like to have a 144/72/48/32 line-up at some point

The model was my entry in the Smurf Scale campaign.




nice! That's a great picture!

Well, its been a while since I posted in this thread. The rare (for this country) being out all day, day after day, plus the Ashes, the TdF....well, I haven't got much modelling done lately. Here's where I'm up to with my Bentwaters Aggressor.






I'm not going to get this one done before the end of the Anything Goes! campaign unless there's an extension....if not, its off to Hangar Queen 2013!


Next up, for the Birds of Prey campaign is this

A Desert Falcon, only my Desert Falcon will look more like this...



Loaded out with 4 x AMRAAM and 2 x AIM-9M for operations over Libya in 2011.

Using the Kinetic 1/48 kit



I'd love to see you do the Desert Falcon in a desert falcon's plumage colors.... now that would truly be sensational!

Neil, I'll be following your F-16 family build thread with a great deal of interest for some time to come. This is certainly a build project of huge proportions. Good luck.

John - yes they are all available. I will be using a mixture of the Hasegawa, Kinetic and Tamiya kits, plus the Otaki/Arrii kit for the YF-16.

I will need aftermarket decals for some of the schemes I want to do, and things like the small horizontal stabilisers for early F-16s will need to be AM too.

Neil, are there available kits for all the versions you need or you'll need to get some AM / scratch ?

I'd heard lots about the shape of the Kinetic nose, and could never see what the fuss was all about. I guess this is it?



Wow, I never knew what the fuss wwas about either, but seeing this kit together with he other one really emphasisies the difference, and the kinetic kit seems very wrong.

Good luck with your endeavour, makign 16 F-16 is a nice one

Still to purchase!

13) YF-16, will need the old Otaki/Arii kit for this.


Then the 2-seaters to round out the collection.

14) F-16B. If I can get hold of the decals I'd like to do one of the early Euro1 birds, if not, probably a USN aggressor



15) F-16D, Greece


16) F-16F Block 60 UAE


This is all subject to minor tweeks and variations, but that's the plan! A spread of variants, users, colour schemes and loudouts, from the original radarless lightweight YF-16, to the bloated heavyweight Block 60s and F-2s
