As a modelist you are what parts of the f16 fusselage is the most complicate to reply in a model scale?. what points would you review in a model scale to give your approval? i refer to something you see that the others don't.

greets,
Pablo


I wouldn't know for sure. I don't make molds for F-16 models, I just build the kits. But my guess would be the canopy, as it has the most compound curves.

thanks Habu, for example for me i take special interest on sharper borders like the entry of the fuselage near the nose. Also the transition of the sharper border with root profile and other is the aft fuselage. they are some of details i want to replay.

Hi Pablo, looking good. Do you know a adres for those tiny screws? We need two different sizes I think. Have made no progress, other things to do.

Well at this step I guess my first model will be at the end of this year (with few months of tolerance :wink: ) ready to work on rc f16. But the time is not important for me if i want a good model with good fairing and realistic details on it. So I hope you and Gerald keep up with good work i use yours as a guide for mine :notworthy: .

Hi Pablo, this is also a site with little screws. www.microfastenings.com
Yesterday filled the underside again and it needed very little filler.
