WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 F-16A ‘TNI-AU’ Pt. 3 – Painting & Finishing

So in the last post I’d taken off the masking of the walkways and was checking my work and I felt that there was something wrong… At 0.7mm the walkways were too thick. They need to be thinner. So out with the masking tape again and I carefully painted the colors of the scheme over …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 F-16A ‘TNI-AU’ Pt. 2 – Painting & Finishing

The fun part can now begin. The original TNI F-16As were delivered in a very striking three tone scheme and the few photos found online showed that it was medium blue, light and medium gray colors. However I was told by a good friend that the light gray was actually a light blue. He sent …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-0D Pt.3 – Painting & Finishing

But while playing around with the …...
