My second build since coming back to the hobby over the winter.  I know it will garner scorn from the Whif community as it is the most generic gray jet ever up until the F-35, but it was a fun build and one I'd never done before so I enjoyed it.   

Tamiya 1/48 F-16CJ OOB.

So I got that going for me...which is nice....


Grey F-16s are like black ties: everyone knows all about them, there's nothing much to say, but everybody has to have one... ;D

It's a good-looking build: well done. :thumbsup:

the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot."

Well, there's at least 3 different shades of grey... so that's something.

Besides, isn't shades of grey a thing? Apparently that movie ISN'T about JMN...




- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

OOB, RW --- all are welcome here AD, not just the whiff stuff. Very nice build too --- and welcome back, nice to see an 'old hand' return.

I never saw the appeal of the F-16 until two of these Misawa birds came over for a demo at the RNZAF's 80th anniversary show last year. What a machine. You've captured the look perfectly!

I think I'm gonna need a bigger display cabinet!!


I'm probably rare in thinking the Viper is quite quirky, nothing else quite looks like it.
That big undercut intake added to the blended body is pretty unusual, except for so many other F-16's!

Nice clean build, good to see you back Nick. :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
