1/48 Hasegawa F-16C Block 40 Bahrain

Gallery Article by Erik Leijdens on May 17 2016



This is my first modern jet fighter I have made, and what is better for a first jet kit than a F-16? Since Iím Dutch it was more logical to build a Dutch F-16 but I wanted something different. So it became a Bahraini F-16C when I came across a decal sheet from Mike Grant Decals.

The kit I have used is the Idolm@ster kit from Hasegawa, since itís plastic is yellow it was quite a challenge to paint it. Aftermarket stuff used are the Aces II seat from Quickboost, AOA probes and off course the decals.

Hope you like my Viper!
