Default 1/48 F-16C- 421st FS Black Widows

Hey everyone!

Been working on this one for a little while now, which has made it so that I probably won't make another Hasegawa viper

Anyhow, I'll go back to the beginning here, and try to take some new pics tomorrow or Sunday:


The start of the pit


The fictional little pilot, Captain "Hack" Coffman

Hack, headless, testing his ACES seat

The God awful intake

Another shot of the intake

And the outside of it

And a few more pics:


Shot of the loadout- 2 Mk.84, 4 GBU-12, Fuel tank, 2 AIM-9, 2 AIM-120


A little work on the AMRAAMs


The GBU-12s


Nutha shot of the AMRAAMs


Captain Hack has a head now!


The whole thing, after airbrushing


Little closer shot, showing my areas that I had to correct with some more airbrushing.

Hopefully I can get some more shots in a day or two.

Also, how did you do the demarcation line around the cockpit. Looks a little spongy.

Actually, the intake and beer cans will be going on an Academy viper, not this one. This is the Hasegawa block 50 CJ kit, which.... I started before I knew anything about block numbers and such. Should be a block 40 as a Black Widow.

The demarcation line around the cockpit looks spongy because of my inferior modeling technique I've since fixed that up a bit.

Nope- not any more. I think it was the fact that it was the first time I'd used silly putty to mark off areas for airbrushing.

The important thing about using tac or silly putty, is to keep the airbrush at 90 degrees to the surface. That way you get a cleaner line.

I've gotten to do some work on this one, and now it's getting closer to being done. Maybe one more day's work on it. But here's some photos for the update:




Moving right along!


The air-air loadout, before I doctored up the fins to look like natural metal.


My model building has bored the kitteh to death...

Thanks James!

This will be the last workbench post! Next stop, me taking some decent photos and posting a "Flightline" thread. Whee!


I love scribbling bomb graffiti, so here's one of the Mk.84s. Feels like I have the gray too far forward on it, but I don't know.


A pile of paveways!


The AMRAAMs, finished up with natural metal fins instead of black.


Targeting pod... suitably filthy.


Underside, with *most* of the loadout- it's missing 2 of the GBU-12.


Now with the other GBU-12s on it, closer to done. I think it was at this point that I smashed the WAR HUD, and had to replace it.


Whole flang dang thing...


The dirty tail before I cleaned her up just a bit more.


Fictional pilot Captain "Hack" Coffman, ready to go blow shit up.


I always liked this view of the Viper.


And lastly, the targeting pod ready to lase...

Thanks for lookin'!

Thats nice work Josh....I like that loadout as well, something about 2,000 pounders under the wings, means business to me.
