Tamiya’s 1/48 F-16 Thunderbird
Here is my build of Tamiya’s F-16 Thunderbird. Kit went together beautifully as one would expect from Tamiya. The challenge with this one was the white paint, and the decals. Painting white, and trying to keep it clean was quite the pain. The decals were a complete nightmare. The red on the nose is actually painted on. There are a ton of touch ups on the decals as well, just because they were so fragile. I scratch built the intake and exhaust covers, as well as the wheel chocks and static dis-chargers. It is a beautiful jet once finished, and looks fast just sitting there.
