This is the Kinetic version of the F-16A adversary. The box provided parts for the B version as well. I choose the A version. Detail on this kit is really very good. Kinetic did a good job there. The only significant fit problems were around the nose section. Some parts left a gap of a few mm so I had to take care of that. I left the detailing to a minimum.

The paint schemes on these adversaries are very attractive. I enjoyed airbrushing it on and did it freehand using Vallejo colours. Kinetic only provides FS numbers though so it took some research and discovering that one of the colours isn't available. But I managed to find the next best thing which was all but the same.

Weathering was not much more than a light wash and some chipping with yellow which worked fine. I think Kinetic provides a very nice basis. This one was a lot of fun to build.
