  1. Welcome aboard,'ll no doubt find the Tamiya version quite a "step up" when you do it - it's an outstanding kit; looking forward to it. Nice work on this one.

    • Thanks, I've just started an F16-XL by Kinetic. I'm planning to document the whole process with this one and make a more detailed post about it.

  2. @throwaway - welcome aboard this friendly forum!

    Will you make a topic for the F16-XL i the "Work in progress - aircraft" group? - I shall follow that one with interest, so I will check the group now and then to keep an eye out for it.

  3. Terrific Tomcat, Matt.

  4. Nice job, Matt. The early, full color markings are classic. I just got the Kinetic F-16XL-2, but I want to save it for a rainy day. I'm thinking some fictional markings for an Air Force aggressor in the white & black splinter. Looking forward to seeing yours!

    • Thanks, I'm going to do the XL in fictional service markings (and also put as much ordinance on it as possible just for fun) and I have Tamiya's aggressor Viper which I'm going to do in an Alaskan Splinter scheme.

  5. Nice clean build. Welcome to the asylum.

  6. Hey Matt, nice job on the Tomcat. I recently picked up the Tamiya -D model, but may not build it for a while. I'll be reading your F-16 log to see what you're doing on it. Welcome to the forum.

  7. Welcome Matt! Nice Tomcat - solid, clean build. Well done.
