Hobby Boss General Dynamics YF-16 A
This time, i'm showing here a kit that I built many years ago, where my skills weren't so good yet, and still aren't (always improving and learning), but I was already mastering some camouflage with airbrush with hands free, without masks. This YF-16A, one of the first evaluation and development prototypes of the fighting falcon, captivated my mind as a boy. I still have a book "US war machine" where exactly this plane appeared, with these markings and this different camouflage scheme. I found several photos of the exact plane, for reference, and an academy kit with this exact version. however the academy kit was very simple, so i found a hobby boss, and used the academy decals. The weathering wasn't quite mastered by me at this time (10 years ago), making it a very clean kit. But the end result pleased me, reminding me of the plane from my childhood photos. Here it is..hope you like it, plus some research pictures from the original one, wich looks that exists until today.
