F-16 Cockpit – ESCI 1/12

Posted by Paul On May - 18 - 2009

I bought this model on Ebay. It was an open box and I got it cheap. I’m kind of a cheap guy so that was ok. The decals had mostly flaked off of the decal sheet and the pilots helmet visor was cracked inhalf. Nevertheless it was a fun build. I salvaged most all of the decals and built the pilots helmet with the visor retracted inside. It is a very cool kit that is fun to look at. It won a first place at the 2006 Fremont Hornet model show in the miscelaneous catagory by beating out several very nice looking beatles!

Here is a picture from the 2008 SVSM Kickoff Classic model show where it came in third in the misc. catagory. The model show was held at the Santa Clara Convention Center:
