1/48 Hasegawa F-16C Polish Air Force
May 28, 2013 in Aviation
Hasegawa 1/48 F-16C straight out of the box except using TwoBob’s Polish Air Force decals. I am currently working on a Polish Air Force jet collection and since they are now a part of NATO and are flying F-16’s I had to add that to the collection. This kit went together very well as all of Hasegawa’s F-16’s do. I’m not too happy with the paint though. I had some regulator trouble with my airbrush and painting freehand camo with a single action aint fun. (soon I will have a double action though). Decals went on perfect and worked well with Solvaset solution. Set also included decals for a 2 seater F-16D. Only problem with decals was the instructions were not too clear. You will notice that the “No Step” area on the spine doesnt go far enough up to the canopy, Its because the decal instructions were not numbered and I mistakenly used the ones for the 2-seat D model. Oh well. When I clear coated it is when I noticed..I need to learn to pay more close attention to what I’m doing… I may add the missles to the wingtips at a later time.. I have 2 other F-16’s to post too.. both Hasegawa kits.
