Tamiya 1/32 F-16 Have Glass Scheme
By Jeff Owens
I finished my F-16 on 12 June 2016. This is everything I have into this build. First of all this is the 1/32 Tamiya F-16 Block 50 kit converted into an F-16 Block 42 for the Ohio Air National Guard out of Toledo, Ohio. I added a few extras to the build. The extras that were used were the Eduard interior, Eduard canopy mask. Cross Delta scab plates, master model AoA probe. Also added was the Academy F-16 sniper pod, and a piece of vinyl was cut out and added to the tail base for the blos modification for modern F-16s by Harold at AMS Resin. I also used the ZACTO MODELS AIM-9xs, which were very nice as well. And for the decals, the decals were by JAKE MELAMPY of Reid air publishing BIG SCALE VIPERS sheet. These decals were amazing to work with; if you see this Jake, awesome job!
The fun part about this build was trying to get the right paint formula for this paint scheme, the Have Glass jets are very hard to paint, especially trying to get the metallic sheen that is has it the sun. Mike Reed and I came up with a formula and I think it looks that part, well at least in my opinion.
