WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 F-16C Blk 30 Pt.2 – Painting & Finishing

Time to finish this build. And I lucked out by finding a photo of the exact F-16C that I’d be modeling. The subject of this build will be serial 85-1552, an F-16C Block 30 of the 23rd TFS ‘Fighting Hawks’, 52nd TFW. She deploted to Desert Storm wearing this eye-catching sharkmouth scheme. Interestingly she has …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/48 Hurricane Pt.1 – Construction

World War II props are always easier builds for me as I do much less research for them. Well… that came back to bite me in the ass. This was my prop build for 2023 until everything went sideways. Oh and I realized that I didn’t have the correct aftermarket markings for this version of …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 F-16C Blk 30 Pt.1 – Construction

Wait. I thought I had already built a Block 30 F-16C already? Alas, I made a mistake with that one: the exhaust is that of a Block 25 Viper but carries the correct markings of a Block 30. I also really don’t like how I dealt with the walkway markings on that build. I’m now …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 F-15E Strike Eagle Pt.1 – Construction

Unlike most aviation fans, I’m not that much of a fan of the F-15. But it’s one of the more important fighter jets of the 20th/21st Century. And of course I want to have a ‘teen fighter’ collection so here we are. Likely overshadowed by newer releases, this Hasegawa offering is at one point, the …...

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 …...
