First, big thanks to our Admin Chuck @uscusn, for the conception and running of this great GB!
(and for the fact that he is very patient with my 1/32 Tornado entry, which is stalled for a while... 🙂 )
Here is my entry of the Airfix 1/72 F-16A, that I intend to finish as ANG's #79404 bird, based at Al Kharj Air Base in Saudi Arabia, during Operation "Desert Storm", 1991.
The kit is part of the Airfix 100 Years of Flight collection set (1903-2003)
It is a very simple, old, a basic kit, might I add. But in 1982, when it was introduced, it might have been a dream kit for some of us.
This will be a gift for my 8yo beloved godson, as he asked for "an F-16"!
Here's a look at the sprues:
And the instructions, all nice and clear
Decal sheet looks good:
Started it an hour ago, here is the progress so far...
And the inevitable QC evaluation/test flight...
Haven't decided if I will build it wheels up or down yet...
Thanks for stopping by!
