Absolutely brilliant!! It can be easily mistaken for a 72nd scale one. Congratulations!

Best, Marek

Looks great - congratulations on this!

Smoked canopy looks good - what's your preferred technique for this?

That's one gorgeous F-16A. You would have cleaned up at our Aussie Model Expo last weekend with this little beauty. :mrgreen:

Thank you for all your kind comments!!

The panel lines were marked with a very thin technical pencil (0.3mm) with a soft lead (in retrospect, I should have used a slightly harder graphite lead over the lower fuselage to make the lines slightly less contrasting). My next project will be a white and I'll use this approach again and I'll try to be a bit more subtle.

My preferred method to darken transparent parts is to use Tamiya acrylic clear paints (smoke and their clear range of colours/inks), but on this model the canopy was not darkened. I guess it looks that way due to the reflex of the black background.

Cheers
