F-16A Netz (Op. Opera)

Postby marcopreto » Sun Jun 10, 2018 20:50

Here are a few photos of the model I've just completed.

It's a F-16A of the IAF, one of the 8 F-16A used to bomb the Iraqui Nuclear reactor in 1981 (Operation Opera).
I've used Revell's F-16C kit. It includes all that is needed to model a A model.

I've built two Mk84 2000lbs bombs, using brass rod and brass sheet.

Here are a few photos of the completed model.

I hope you like it.
