here's part 1
i followed Pete's build of his Polish bird and thanks to Stubske i take the challenge to build this Greek doubleseater



the rear of the backseater was made from a tornado fueltank and detailled up with styrene strips. i've made a mould of it for maybe future projects
here another pic from the scratch made rear part



the spine was started with a Greek parahousing tail from my PWMP sets and styrene






i used a blackbox cockpit for the frontseater and the kit one for the backseater (Tamiya had already made the pin for the backseater on the model) sidewalls and instrumentpanels are made



so far for now

Looking very good JP. Interesting contrast between the weathered fuselage and the clean conformal tank.

thanks guys for the great comments
here is the next update
the CFT's are in place and both cockpits received their first paint coats



now the complete model is airbrushed, i had to use 3 different paint manufactures, valejo, aeromaster and gunze sangyo.
decals are in place, i used them from Zotz.
you can notice also that the CFT's have a different paintscheme than the aircraft, these are add-ons, so they can differ from the planescheme



the yellow/black decal is from a F4 sheet (airdoc)



i airbrushed the walkway lines, and the stenciling is airbrushed with eduard stencils

a few more pics from the almost finished model, just need a canopy and have to add the hud glass.
AIM 120's,sidewinders and a harm will be the armament (maybe there are some other options?)
its a total different camo than Pete's Polish viper
the Greek birds are really dirty and weathered.
hope you like this one guys

JP

@ JP31,

Very nice work, realistic weathering, great detail in cockpit area. As Greeks, we feel honored and we all thank you for building this 1/32 scale Hellenic Air Force 340th Squadron F-16D Block 52 serial number 610 model.

well Pavel, Fred (Stubkse) is working on the canopy frame and we want to do the clear parts in two separate parts.
in case this dont work, i hope eventually to get one from Dr Pepper resin if they are ready, otherwise have to wait for academy.
i asked Pete for one, but got no reaction
i wanna do a block 60 also, just wait for the wolfpack conversion (future release)
if you guys wanna have parts to do a doubleseater, i have several casted parts (like you can see on the pics)
