The only positive note about Covid: a lot of time for modelling! Shortly after the F-14A of the VF-84, here I'm with another project just completed for a collector and friend of mine. First of all, I have to mention that there are no available B[...]
Hello fellow modelers. I am a former AF Crew Chief (A-10/F-16) that now writes Military Aviation Books, which have covered the P-61 Black Widow and Night Fighters, Vietnam and currently I am working on the F-101 Voodoo. I enjoy modeling whenever[...]
I saw this beautiful Chilean F-16 built by George Johnson a few years ago ( and decided I had to build one myself (in my scale). I secured a Hasegawa Sufa as the base kit, and finally found some decals from TwoBobs on ebay (out of print).
Here are a few miscellaneous aircraft photos from my collection that I’ve been adding to for over 30 years.
I took no "in progress" photos, but you all know how to build models!
My first photo show's the model with the decal instruction sheet which was easy to follow.
All I had to do was use my Tamiya X-2 Gloss White paint, then apply the decals after[...]
This is a quick three day build of Tamiya's superb quarter scale F-16 series....

Just finished this project. A really nice kit, even though not without a few issues. I mean, being a Tamiya I would never expect so many pin marks. And they're everywhere. Some easily removed, some simply impossible to do so. And some I'[...]
My 4 months journey with this kit is almost over. I decided to publish pictures despite Sidewinders not beeing finished yet, still waiting for ordered magnets.
Words are not needed to decribe this Tamiya's kit. Real pleasure to build. I finall[...]
I've always liked the look of the F-16XL and so have always wanted to build one. This was an OK kit to build, there were some issues with the ordinance and I now have a huge amount of spare parts for a 1/48 F-16 as there are parts for other vers[...]
Hey folks, back again:
It's odd but until recently I'd not built an F-16 in any scale for over twenty years, now there's two in my cabinet !! - the other is an Italeri 'B'
This is Tamiya's 1:48 F-16C-50, not quite a 'shake'n bake' as some tho[...]
