Hello guys..thank you all for your kind comments,,Here you will see more progress of the F-16 and in the last photo you gonna see where is the build situation right now,I must say that kit is perfect just perfect,,goes together very smoothly and helps you to build it very fast.The biggest problem was ,when i tryied to fit the resin CFT'S on the fuselage,but i must say that i've been expecting that more or less because the resin(copies) cft's it was made for hasegawa kit,but after lot of putty and sanding  finally made them look ok,,,anyway here are some more photos,.

Wheels and more



Parachute extension .before and after



Dryfit to check hot it goes together,,,just perfect

Fuselage glued



Air intake,,with a little bit of sanding and small ammount of putty i made it seamless




Cft's Drama,,lot of work here,, but i think the result is acceptable,


Lot of putty

After lot of sanding



And this is where we are right now,,the hardest part has been done,,Blask color has been sprayed on CFT'S  mostly to see how it look after sanding,,and also i spray some black for preshade .Still waiting the desal for the ZEUS version,, i hope im gonna have them in my hand soon.So we are almost ready for paint, i hope im gonna finish it in time,P.s. F 104 is ready for paint also tomorrow im gonna post some photos on the F-104 section also,, i hope you like it so far,,Thank you again.

Looking great!

I'm just waiting on delivery of a hasegawa 1/48 f-16d block 52 plus in Hellenic markings with the awesome over wing/fusalage long range tanks.
Be following this one closely

Thank you guys for your kind words,
Today's update for F-16
Model has been primed in black,,also i made some progress on exhaust nozzle and also the decals for the ZEUS  version arrived yesterday,,,so  i will push hard to paint the camo on the under side of the aircraft and on the uper surfaces,tonight...crossed fingers that everything is gonna be ok,,,P.S i must finish this baby until friday morning,,because my friend who asked me to build it is leaving for holidays and wants to take that bird at home before holidays,,,

Black primer,




Exhaust nozzle




And Decals arrived finally,,Not the best quality in the world,, but i hope the will do the job,,Also are made for kinetic kit so maybe they will need some extra work and care to make them fit properly,,fingers crossed,,again.

Gnarkill and Ted,,thank you so much guys,,More progress photos today,,i have spend yesterday evening and today morning to finish the paint job on the F-16.Sprayed the Ghost camo on the undersides and on top,,except from areas where the decall will be placed,I must say it went very well and i am satisfied with the result, Here are the photos,of the paint job.
P.S. The kit has been glossed just a few minutes ago,(no photos yet.. i can't touch it..),and now im waiting until tomorrow to dry up and start decalling.In meanwhile as im waiting the gloss coat on the F-16 to get dry,, im gonna grab the F-104 and finish the camo tonight,(i will post some photos hopefull tomorrow in the F-104 section),so tomorrow will be ready for a gloss coat also,,..So we getting close on both kits,just a few days left,,,Thank you aqain and i hope you like the work so far.

Hello again guys,Gnarkill and Fabian thank you so much guys,Fabian you are so right about the Batman's new ride,,it was the first thing it came in my mind when i saw it painted all in black,,[smile]
So,, here we are,after a big fight with decalls i must say that i can see a light in the end of the tunel,F-16 is almost ready for final semigloss coat ,,also some pieces must be glued ,like landing gear ,wheels etc and we are ready,, i think today i will finish it,,
So,,all decals in place,, i must say it was a bit pain to placed all those decals properly.first issue it was the allignment..the decal is designed for kinetic kit so the measurments is a bit different,and i had lot of issues to allign all those white and blue stripes properly,So i did my best to make it look as good as it could,still not perfect,,but there is nothing more i could do,And also it was thick like a news paper so i had to put lot of decalls solution to make them sit on the surface properly.
Here are the photos,,still needs some little touch ups and it's ready, i hope you like it,

Gloss coat dry and ready for decals


Decals.....
