Default 1/48 F-16AM RNLAF Demo Jet (Tamiya Conversion)

Hi!

Already finished last November, i only now found time to take pictures.

It is a model of the demo jet of the Royal Netherland Air Force, as it flew in 2013, flown by capt. Stefan "Stitch" Hutten.

The WIP thread is here:
http://zone-five.net/showthread.php?t=31719

As a basis, I used the Tamiya Thunderbirds kit. To convert it into an A(M) model, i used the KASL set, which fitted fantastic. Only the tip of the vertical tail had to be made into an A tail, because KASL had a C shaped tip.

Other aftermarket accessoires:
Tamiya detail set (pitot tube, AOA probes, stiffener plates)
Aires exhaust
KT Model Resin Works Smokewinders
Master Models static dischargers

And of course decals from Syhart.
The decals for Capt. Huttens helmet are self made.

I used the piants from Mr. Paint, which are made specifically for this jet. The lighter orange is a two layer paint, the first providing the orange base color, the second adds the metallic sparkle.





































Cheers,
Markus

Damn!:

Just jaw on the floor Damn! Beautiful work! Do you think the guys that come up with these paint schemes do it just to screw with modelers? You have to admit they are an evil bunch of bastards! ...And don't even get me started with the airlines! They are a breed of evil bastards all their own!!!!!

Thanks.

Yes, it is difficult to make these paint schemes, but they are beautiful ;-)

Cheers,

I first saw this aircraft way, way off in the distance as it went over the top of a loop, popping flairs. At first I though it was crashing as it looked as if it was on fire and falling apart. I saw the same routine a couple of days later at RNAS Yeovilton airday. Cracking build.
