    Hello Flu,
    Looks like your off to a good start!
    Do you build your models from prints made from scans or are you building from the actual model so that there is no turning back?
    I ask because of the F15.

    Hi Amazyah

    if I´m calm enough to wait for the scanning process.........:grin:
    I try to scan all models before working, like the F-15 but I forgot the formers...............
    And the F16 is build directly out of the kit.................

    Good start, Flu. The fit of the parts appears to be very good also. Although I wish the F-15 was still on the table. 8v)

    Flu...the F-16 Fighting Falcon is looking great. I like the idea of giving the model a bit of realism with the flaps. Nice work.

    Your F-16 is coming along beautifully. The view up the tailpipe reminded me of this photo I took of an F-16C at an airshow.

    [​IMG]

    Someone had chalked or painted "Just Married 7413" along with some stick figures in the center of the exhaust and the heat of the exhaust hadn't obliterated it. The heat in that area must be like a blast furnace!

    apparent mistake...........

    Hi folks,

    a friend of our german forum told me about a clear mistake (a designers mistake). For the center of rotation I used the marked piont at the fuselage. But, have a look at the original pic, the horizontal Tail ends nearly with the jet nozzle. I just improved the model..........................

    The original:
    [​IMG]

    and the changed model.......
