USAF Wild Weasel F-16CJ in 1/48

This is a quick three day build of Tamiya’s superb quarter scale F-16 series…

I’ve been meaning to do one for years and finally got around to it – a stunning kit that goes together perfectly. Chose the Tiger Meet markings to add a bit more colour to the interesting but drab multiple greys of the USAF modern markings.

Really happy with how it turned out in terms of colour modulation and weathering without going overboard. I see why people swear by these kits!

  1. Wow !!!! 3 days to turn out this beauty ??? Amazing to say the least. You did a fine job with it, and that’s a cool set of markings you chose.


  2. Seriously, in three days, can’t say I could have done that so I tip my hat to you Justin. Nicely done she really looks good.

  3. Yeah – I can’t get through a kit that fast! Yours turned out great! And fun to see the F-2 on the table next to it – I’m finishing up a 1/72 F-2B that I’ll post soon. Such a cool aircraft in my opinion…
