  • Just watched it, pilots outfits are next... but need a good reference picture for that.

    James, the name is pronounced as the actor “dick van dijke”, just add an ‘n’ add the end.

      Looks GREAT! I did the IAF scheme on my 70mm some time ago too. Looks very cool whether flying by or just looking awesome sitting around....cheers Kurt

          WT, Diggin' your livery. Invasion stripes and wave separation lines...all good. Great work, Sir. Best, LB

          • Finally completed the IAF scheme. Disappointed that the foam melted in some areas due to hot weather but the project turned out nice for a first time with airbrushing.

              Fsr045, Outstanding! Hard to believe this is your first 'airbrush' work: your IAF F-16 looks like the "real meal deal". Love the subtle weathering, too. Bravo Zulu, Sir. Best, LB

              • Moki38 waytooslow Impressively clean repaints, both of you. I'd love to have one of each in my hangar!

                Fsr045 Elbee is right, that's good work for a first time airbrusher! I am a sucker for IAF schemes. What brand of paints did you use? Did you use a readymade paint set for the IAF, or did you custom mix?

                    Very cool! Love it. Agreed, you should be very proud of your work. The IAF colour scheme is one of the most attractive camo schemes imho. Well done!

                      I used Vallejo Air paints for the camo and mission models for the light ghost gray parts. The weathering is a combo of raw umber and black.

                        Nice look! I decided mine will be painted like this prior to seeing yours. Not many with this livery out there. In fact, yours is the first I've seen.

                        ​​​​​​​I just ordered the graphics from Callie. It's going to take me some time but I think it'll be worth it in the end.

                            • Non-scale Thunderbirds #22 after smashing my beloved raptor to bits flying it into a tree. Successful remaiden this AM, flies as good as ever.

                              A little rough around the edges but looks the part in the air.

                                It is a 20mm diameter glass dome. You can find some on Ebay for example ...

                                    Now that's impressive. I love the varying density of the greens and browns, looks like the "real deal". Assume this was with an airbrush. The A-4 and Mig together make a sweet pair!
