F-16 CJ Hellenic Air force

  • 00206
Hello everybody,

Here I want to show you my newest Model, the F-16CJ Block 50 of the Hellenic Air Force (HAF). The greek Airforce (HAF) get altogether 180 F-16 from the type F16C/D Block 30, 50 and 52. These Airplanes have the same modern weapons like the U.S F-16. The first delivery of F-16C/D's for Greece, code name Peace Xenia I, were Block 30 Airplanes with a General Electric F110-GE-100 Turbofan. The first F-16D fort he HAF have been delivered on the 18. November 1988. F-16C have been delivered shortly time later.

In April 1993, General Dynamics get an additional order to produce 40 more F-16CJ/DJ Block50 Airplanes (32 Charlie and 8 Delta Models). This Airplanes are powered by a General Electric F110-GE-129 power plant, and delivered by the code name Peace Xenia II. To discern the Blocks 30, 50 and 52 of HAF you only need to read the numbers on the fin. Block30 Serie begin with 1, Airplanes of Block50 Serie with 0 and the Airplanes of Block52 Serie with 5. To discern the Blocks 30, 50 and 52 of HAF you only need to read the numbers on the fin. Block30 Serie begin with 1, Airplanes of Block50 Serie with 0 and the Airplanes of Block52 Serie with 5.

The model
The quality of the Cockpit was 0.K but I also used parts from Eduard and Avionix (ex Blackbox). All inside surfaces were painted in FS36320 (Gunze-Sangyo). The pilot's seat is from Avionix and also coloured in FS 36320. In this early stadium I used the Decals, because these for the pilot's seat are also included.

The air intake in the box is with four parts and should be, puttied and sanded on these areas because you can see in it.

One bad thing on this kit is that there are less of cables and pilotages into the wheel well. Here I used photo etched parts from Eduard (49390) and cables from my own spare part box.

The inside of the nozzle are upgraded with parts from the Eduard set (#49383).

The colours of the F-16and F-4 wich were used from the HAF are called „Ghost Scheme“. These colours are FS 35237, FS 36307 and FS 36251. I only got these colours from Xtracolor. Because the colours of the F-16 are really bright, I used an light washing colour.

After airbrushing, I assembled the wheels, tanks, nozzle and weapon racks .

Finally I assembled the ladder from Eduard (48474) to get a really original pic of this model.

So I hope you will have fun with these pics! If you have questions or anything else please write it here or send me an email.

Very cool Oliver. Well done. You did a very nice job with your outdoor shots. What type of camera did you use? Wingman out.

That's a camo scheme I've been wanting to do on an F-16 for ages! but I can't even get my first F-16 totally finished, so...
