After working on the tank for a bit I needed a bit of lighter entertainment so I did this

Interested in what you guys think? Going to do the old style tail marking for the 117th Sqn too tomorrow. Next up I guess is the normal D Family model and then the Brakeet with the large spine which in turn wil evolve into a Sufa.

Looks pretty good so far. The proportions look great. Some quick details I noticed...you need to add cheek/inlet lights, wingtip lights, and a stinger light. Also, the AOA and static ports would look nice, as well as a gun and a touchup of the exhaust nozzle to get the feathers in there. Keep up the good work.

Nice job, and 2 comments:
1. The AIM-9 seem to be a bit short.
2. Israel doesn't have a "no-spine" D model.

This website should be able to supply all photos needed including the angles you request. Good luck.....


actually sir, here at luke only the DCC (and higher ranking ADCC on a D model) go on the canopy, the ADCC all have their names on the door. (inside of it and not the outside like in that one picture. i just put the names on my door but for some reason can't remember the name of the font.

Hi DeepSpace

Thanks for your comments! I scaled the AIM-9 by using measurements I got from the Raytheon (I believe it was) website and then calculated how long it should be in pixels compared to how long the airplane is in pixels. Perhaps I placed it too far back on the launcher or the whole launcher plus missile assembly is too far back. I will look at it over the weekend!

2. Yeah I know but I try to draw as many versions as I go along so I can do other paintscheme's too.

Another question: I want to draw some profiles of F-16CJ's and I'd like to add HARM's to those. Whenever I see pictures of HARM's I see a rectangular mounting bracket in between the missile and the pylon. What is that bracket called and does anyone have any good images of it?

...maybe work on a Block 52 / Thunderbird scheme with the latest carbon-fiber PW-229 'Turkey Feathers'?

The polished titanium Turkey Feathers always looked great and were fun to model, but like many things, technology/modernization has taken it's course, even with the T-birds. All of the Block 52/52+ aircraft have the PW-229 nozzle, as well as some Block 42s in the ANG.

Your projects all look great; Awesome work! :cheers:

Hi TEG! Thanks for the compliment :) I am trying to figure out how to portray the carbon-fiber turkey feathers realistically, I've tried some stuff but that didn't look too convincing :) I'd like to do a poster with all the current thunderbirds planes include the dual but I need all the names, might try getting in touch with the team via their website.

MiG Killer - 60 Years 322 Sqn commemorative paintscheme

This F-16AM was the machine Col. Tankink used to shoot down a Serbian AF MiG-29 using a AIM-120 missile. His kill was the first one by a RNLAF pilot since WW2. It is depicted here in it's special paintscheme to commemorate the 60th year in existance of 322nd RF Squadron, the oldest squadron in the RNLAF. It was established during WW2 comprising of mostly dutch pilot's in part due to support of HRH Prince Bernhard.

Hi people!

Recently I have drawn a number of aircraft from the RNLAF Training detachment currently based at Springfield, Ohio.
