Hoi Everyone,

Here's my Monogram (RofG) 1/72 F-16CJ built up as a Greek F-16C Block 30 shortly after delivery. All parts from out of the box. Had to splice the BAF parahousing onto the "C" tail, but i think that worked alright.

Decals from Zotz, Hasegawa, and Isradecal. A light wash with diluted Tamiya Smoke. Intake cover is aluminium foil (not easy to work with, but cleaning up that intake would have been worse :D ).

Not the best pictures, but here they are...

That's beautiful :D Thanks for making and sharing the pictures !!!

"Official" Aegean Ghost colors are:
FS 35237
FS 36251
FS 36307

(I think the Aegean Ghost was a USN aggressor color scheme for the F-16N or is it only superficially true ??)

Hoi,

Thanks guys. For the scheme i used the Model Master line. They have the three colors you've listed. I did try to lighten up the colors some... but it did not seem to have much affect.

The USN is supposed to have the same color scheme. I know the pattern is just about identical. But the USN colors always look very bleached out. Even the weathered HAF Vipers seem to retain more of their "color" than the USN Adversaries.

Correct! HAF officers saw the effectiveness of the USN scheme and requested from GD to apply it to the Greek F-16s also.

Hoi Guys,

Thanks for the compliments. When i figure out how to get the digital camera to focus on a deeper plain, i'll post a few more pictures of it. But that feat has escaped me so far.

Hoi,

It is made from aluminum foil. Not so easy to work with. But it does look the part. I should have primered it too, as the paint is prone to chip off of it.

I like the looks of it and it certainly serves it's purpose (to hide that darn RofG intake).

Hoi,

Tried some new pictures with a bigger camera. Now they look a bit too dark...

Still not happy with the depth of field/focus.

Hoi Habu,

With the first set of pictures, yeah pretty much. The second set are with a nice camera with a bazooka attached to it. But i'm am going to try it again with a smaller lens. That should work a bit better. So more to come. F-16.net does shrink the pics down a bit more than other sites do, i think.
