Talk about a necro thread - more than 5 years since the last post, another F-16 is finished, thanks to the Hangar Queen 2020 Campaign.

F-16C Block 30. 527th Aggressor Squadron, RAF Bentwaters 1989. Tamiya 1/48 Aggressor boxing, Afterburner Decals, Tamiya metal detailing set.



Collection now stands at 5/16!

A most interesting project and I love when things from the past pop up like this! Keep up the work, there is just eleven left to do !

I have had a project in my mind about European Starfighters (Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, West Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey and finally Canada who flew them here in Europe even if they aren't a European country). It has stayed in my mind as for now at least ! I have however bought all the kits (second hand, none of them more than five Euros) and all the decals I need (a bit more expensive but not too bad either...). So much for long-term projects !

Awesome project Neil, this will already make a great display and conversation piece, and just keep getting better!
It must be the week for “necro threads” as you put it, I’ve just revived my Chev vs Hemi thread from 2015 as well!

Looking forward to the next chapter.

Cheers, D

That's pretty cool Magnus. When you say West Germany, I assume you mean Luftwaffe and Marineflieger, right?

Tim, Jester, Damo, thankyou for the kind words. Next up will be either an Israeli Barak for the Israel campaign, or more likely a block 50 in the new Have Glass 5 scheme (I have a bottle of the Hataka paint I want to try out)

I was wondering if you were planning to build a version of the F16 from the film "Iron Eagle" ?
