For an idea of what is eligible here is a good list, which will provide plenty of opportunities for a subject: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_military_operations
Note: even though some of those operations start before and/or finish after the above period, GB subject must have been deployed after start of August 1990 to be eligible, and it must be a combat zone where actual combat occurred, even if the subject did not actively participate i.e. patrol, recon, sentry, etc. If in doubt, check with the admins.
No part started kits, must be a new build. Please post a photo of the unstarted kit contents and a date reference as the first post in your build thread

I will be building the Tamiya 1/72 F-16C as a F-16C Block 30 Barak of 110 Squadron IDF/AF. This aircraft shot down an armed Hezbollah Ababil UAV drone and took part in bombing missions during the 2nd Lebanon War in July/August 2006.


The aircraft was painted in a new trial colour scheme (compare to the other aircraft behind wearing standard IAF F-16 camo).


Changes to the kit will be:
  • Tail fin extension taken from spare F-16 kit
  • Eduard Brassin JDAMs, Sidewinders and exhaust
  • ResKit Python IV and late F-16 wheels
  • Large 600 gallon underwing drop tanks taken from Hasegawa F-2
  • Master Models brass pitot and angle of attack sensors
  • IsraDecal decals

Looks promising Craig.

In the world of F-16 modelling how many Hase F-2 kits do you think got trashed as donors when 600Gal tanks and B 40 wheels were extracted?

I started building models, then I was collecting more than I built. Now I'm more of an archivist.

You could still build them in flight. But I have no desire to build an F-2, so I picked up a few when we were bringing in Hasegawa just for the tanks and then sold them cheaply
