Sweet 16 - Episode XI
Well, I certainly didn't expect this build to drag out as long as it has. Now I'm up to my arm pits in decals, and I hate decals. I can only sit for so long, soaking decals and meticulously positioning them, and then repositioning them. It drives me nuts. To top it off, I guess I didn't put down a glossy enough coat so I'm dealing with a bit more silvering than I'd like to admit. Ugh. Perhaps the next gloss coat will tone it down a little. I can hope at least...
This quick update is just to show you that I've completed the aircraft specific decals for the 5th Air Force F-16 based out of Misawa, Japan. I happened to like the tail art of this unit, not to mention I have a buddy stationed out there.
The next step will be adding the generic F-16 decals, of which there are many. [sigh] But it must be done. Then markings will be added to the munitions and stores, and finally some touch ups before this is all said and done.
Thanks for looking!
