1/48 Hasegawa F16B+ 

Royal Netherlands Air Force

--------------------

 

This is Hasegawa's F16B+ kit with an Airwaves resin extended tail parabreak housing and replacement decals.  The rest of the kit is out of the box with the addition of tape seatbelts for the AcesII seats and some dummy sidewinders for the wingtips.  Just for fun I added fuse wire static discharge "wands" to rudder, tailplanes and wingtips - most of which have survived so far.

Humbrol paints were brush applied with the exception of the black of the rudder which was misted over the pre-painted blue colour.  The kit stencils were used along with Xtradecal decals for the 313 Sqn. Royal Netherlands Air Force F16B that was displayed at the RAF Mildenhall airshow in 1992.
