So as I ease my way back into the hobby I decided on a kit that I always heard is bulletproof and a Real World build kind of because I like the scheme and have never done one.  Sorry for the poor pics.  Proper photo setup coming soon.

Why petril not burn?

Sorry  forgot to mention the kit is the Tamiya 1?48 F-16CJ.  It's not cheap but it is a Shake n Bake kit that would lend itself well to a build where the majority of the work goes into the paint/markings/backstory.   I'm thinking of one in RNZAF colors assuming their F-16 order didmd get cancelled...

Very Tidy.

six years away from the hobby? dont look like its degraded your skills that much (if at all)  :thumbsup:
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
