1/48 Tamiya F-16C Riverside Rendezvous

Gallery Article by KJ  Lee on Dec 18 2013



This is my 1/48 Tamiya F-16C attached to a KC-135 refueling boom scratched by myself.  I had been thinking about my miniature F-16 flying without a stand which is infact impossible, but there is another way to display without a stand.  After seeing a picture of a refueling F-16, I discovered that if I can make a refueling boom, my F-16 can be connected to it.

The title 'riverside rendezvous' is from the song 'seaside rendezvous' by Queen, the legendary rock group.  Rendezvous means a kind of docking in the space as well as meeting. 

Notice the pilot gaze.....upward to the boom.
