Dragon 1-144 scale F-16A Fighting Falcon

This one has been languishing on my shelf for nearly 5 years, and I finally decided to finish it. Old school. All finishing has been applied with a paintbrush. The colours are all Testors Model Master Enamels, with a brushed gloss coat of Future, decals, more Future, Mig wash, and then brushed on Dullcote. The cockpit detail was non-existent, so I just coated the inside of the canopy with black and glued it on. Unfortunately, the decals were out of register, and the main landing gear was molded out of true, so it has a bit of a lean. According to my wife, this one is actually “cute”. The cutting mat the model is sitting on is marked in one inch squares, so the true (lack of) size is very apparent.
