1/72 Revell Germany F-16 MLU

Gallery Article by Kaan Gök

 

This is Revell's 1/72 F-16 MLU kit. It is an excellent kit which goes together without any major problems. I only had some trouble with the alignment of the landing gear, balancing the plane horizontal was a little difficult. I used Eduard's and Part's Photoetched detail sets for this kit. Altough they are designed for Hasegawa and Italeri kits, most of them could be used on this kit, too. Seat is from Aires.

Other than the photoetched and resin detail pieces, I added the oxygen hose and the canopy locking rubber. I manufactured the hose by wrapping a thin copper wire around an insuline syringe and attaching a styrene rod at the end of it using CA glue. The rubber is copper wire, too.

I replaced Revell's Amraams by Hasegawa Amraams from a 1/72 weapon set. Decals are from the kit, and they were beautiful. Daco factor was at work here. The special paint scheme really makes the grey F-16 an eye catcher.
