This one was a cakewalk as I've grown quite familiar with building 1/32 F-16's! Basically it had to be backdated to a block 32 from the kit block 40. Small intake, P&W engine, Black Box cockpit, etc. I also had to scratchbuild a ACMI pod for the wingtip. It also needs a ALQ-188 pod, but so far I haven't acquired one for it.

Anyway, after shoehorning and beating the Black Box cockpit into the hull the rest was easy. She's painted in my usual Testors Model Master paints with Tamiyas for detailing. The ACMI pod was made by cutting up an old Hasagawa AIM-9L and reshaping it. Flat coating was my last using Humbrol flat, the shit just turns white too often for me. Besides, it smells horrible! Sorry Mark, but the Gunze flat is my new go to flat coat.

I haven't had a chance to take better pics of her but I will soon; these shots just suck. There is no green anywhere on this plane, it's all greys and blues! It won a second at Regionals last month, won't get dick at Nationals I'd wager. We'll see...
