Turkish Tigermeet Revell 1/72 F-16

July 24, 2019 · in Aviation · · 10 · 1.9K

Hi There,

This was built as a surprise for Innis when he returns from his holiday.

It was painted with Tamiya Acrylics and the transfers were Model Alliance Arctic Tigers.

The seat belts and bang handle were scratched. The belts are a tad overscale but it's still a learning experience for me.

I used some metal foil on part of the exhaust which worked really well.

The reason for the Turkish version is the the wee fella is half Turkish and has Turkish versions of a Spitfire, Hurricane and FW-190 in mind. We have the kits and transfers. They will appear when he wants to go for it.

This was finished in a bit of a hurry as he was supposed to be back two weeks ago but his Nana ended up in hospital twice so he'll get his surprise when he finally gets back but it's not looking good for East Fortune on Saturday.

Thanks for looking.

  1. Nicely done, and a very colorful bird!

  2. Good-lookin' little Falcon, my friend...nice build, sir.

  3. Great build, nice scheme!

  4. Again, great work here, especially with a personal connection to the Turkish element of the build. I always think that when you start making a base for your projects, it’s a definite step up and makes everything look better.

    Well done, ‘liked’

  5. Very nice work! Allways love the great variety of Tigermeet schemes. This one is just great!
