Hi again Jochem!!

Thank You for another kind comment!! The decals are "self composed" from various decal sheets - TwoBobs, Astra and Super Scale. I am currently awaiting the "Makos" inscribtion from one of my friends - a former "Mako" himself - who has custom made those decals for me.

All my F-16 scale models are Hasegawa 1/72 from the "good old" ones up to the newer Block-50 kits.

Greetings,

Henrik.

Thanks Yang - this one was quite hard in regard to "composing" the decals from a variety of sources.

Two AMDs on the wingtips eh? Interesting, not a usual loadout.

Habu - actually quite common in the 93rd FS when AMRAAMs are not monted on sta. 1/9!! Although operating after more or less the same doctrine nearly every US F-16 unit has a "unique unit fit" of training weaponry - when thinking of a certain unit I have a standard fit for almost every unit that so to speak "goes with the unit".

Another unit that often flies with AMDs on the wingtip stations is the 124th FS / 132nd FW in Des Moines, Iowa.

He-He, thanks buddy!! For me, model building is to show the model as close to the real thing as possible.
