Belgian F-16 in 1/72

Using Hasegawa's 1/72 F-16 kit, I constructed and painted this model in the mid-1980s while still in college... I found modeling to be a relaxing break from my studies. The model was painted with colors from Gunze Sangyo (excellent range of water based paints), Microscale decals depicting a Belgian F-16, along with a white metal ACES II seat casting from Aeroclub. The kit's pitot tube broke off, but I intend to fix it with a beautiful turned brass rendition from Fine Molds -- see pics. Plane was lightly weathered with Bragdon Powders (chalks). Navigation lights were painted with Tamiya clear blue, green, and red colors as appropriate.
