Italieri F 16 1/48
July 19, 2013 in Aviation
This is my latest build , it is the Italieri F16 , I have to say the pictures make it look better than it is, there are quite a few fit issues with this kit which required filler, also the air inlet which on this aircraft is the focal point is virtually none existant hence the scratch built cover , the decals are poor and I made a couple of annoying mistakes during the build but all in all not a bad job. I am thinking of doing the Kinetic version of the same aircraft, does anyone have experience of that kit?.
The Spitty by the way is the Revell Mk9 with aftermarket decals, I think I read somewhere that this moulding is actually a Hasegawa and I think you can tell as it is a fantastic kit and highly recommended unlike the F16 which will probably end up on Ebay.
Special thanks to Danny Attree for his advise on the colours.
