Ah...well first I would have said to use the RoG kit. But that's ok, this is the second best kit to be sure. I don't like Hase's seat they put in this kit. Using one from a Hase F-15 kit, slightly modded of course would have worked better, or a resin seat, or gank one from a RoG kit. The rest of the cockpit looks just fine btw... Just dont' forget to put a WAR HUD on there. I know that's tough to do in 1/72 though. Your intake looks great too!

I have the RoG F-16B & ordered the RoG F-16C for future projects.
As for the hasegawa seat it look like it is overscaled but because the canopy will be in close position i don't mind.

Any suggestion for making the WAR HUD (Method,Materials...)?

Nice progress. I really like the engine.

Maybe try making the WAR HUD from thin sheets of plastic and clear ones for the glass sctions.

Eduard has a 1:72 PE set that includes a WAR HUD. I used it too on my Aviano bird that i made. That's another option.

But please keep us updated.

Like Mad said the Eduard set has the WAR HUD, but I think with really thin plastic card, it'll work. You can use the Eduard or even the Aires PE fret as a guide for what shape to cut it.

Coming out nicely! Just for future reference, Orion Models makes some laser cut scab plates in 1/72 and 1/48. Self adhesive too. For a future build maybe ;)

Nice work done soo far. The pieces are formed and fit with an amazing amount of precision and this turning it into a beautiful model. That really shows the amount of time you are spending on making this model. I m really looking forward to see the coplete model. Good Luck.. :)
