Thanks Tom  :thumbsup: I never liked how the three color scheme was laid out on the aircraft in real life and I was too lazy to remap it. So, I put the two color F-16 scheme on her. The darker gray is suppose to be gunship gray but I wanted a worn sun bleached look to her. So, I added a $hit ton of flat white to it to tone it down. The nose cone is straight gunship gray.

Just... WOW!  :cheers: :bow:

Thanks Rat :thumbsup:

There's also an interesting, asymmetrical ROCAF paint scheme for the F-CK-1:

I rather like the look of that aeroplane, it's like an F-16 with conventional intakes.

Who does a kit of it please?

A quick search shows these in 1/72;

Or these in 1/48;

There are also upgrade kits available, almost all of them in 1/48 (only one set of wheels in 1/72, that I could find).



PS: DON'T go having a coronary episode over the HLJ prices! (I almost did! :o)

Note: BNA Models shows the AFV Club kits as "Future Releases" but no prices.

I did, those are RIDICULOUS prices for a 1/72 jet. It'd be cheaper to convert an F-16............

Thanks for looking anyway, I came up with nothing when I tried it.

I have tried the opposite (on drawing), modifying a Ching-Kuo to look like a F-16: <_<
