The decals really bring it to life. Well done!

Strongly concur! Those markings are the cherry on top of a magnificent model!

Hi guys,

New project on the bench, the Academy KAI T-50 at 1/48.
I'll go for a "TA-50 like" version with some armement underwing and an engine change (SNECMA M88 :P)



And the loadout:



From left to right :
- MICA IR
- GBU-12 on TER
- drop tank
- Damocles targeting pod
- drop tank (not on the pic)
- AGM-65
- MICA IR (not on the pic).

Not sure about the paint scheme yet, so if you have suggestion your help is welcome and appreciated :smiley:

Hope you like it

Damien

Hi,

Thanks Greg :D

First paint colour applied:



The colour and scheme will be inspired by french Mirage F-1CT scheme:

Looking good.  You'll probably need s demarcation line of some kind to set off the radome, either a scribed line or a subtle shift in color to set it off.

Thanks for the remark. It's planned, the radome will be paint in a darker grey (Gunze H301/FS 36081 vs H305/FS36118 for the actual grey) once the scheme will have been fully applied.

One cold easily see this happening for real...though the pressure from the M346 would be high.

You're right Greg, I'm afraid we would never see a french KAI T-50 as replacement of Alphajet because of the M-346  :icon_crap:
I have planned to do a french T-50, but as I don't have the decals yet and the whole idea of what I want to do, it will be a fictionnal country from "Ace Combat" universe for this one  ;)

Some news on the paint, I managed to apply the second colour today. Masking was longer than expected so I spent the whole afternoon on it  :-[





Tomorrow, I'll start to work on different grey shade on the airframe (radome, wingtips) and loadout  :smiley:

It could have potentially happened if the ROKAF had selected the Rafale over the F-15K back in 2002 (reportedly the Rafale came out tops in the technical evaluation).  This could have led to a reciprocal deal whereby the Armée de l'Air acquire a M88 powered T-50F (for France) as a replacement for their Alpha Jets.  One could see this further developed to also offer a carrier based trainer version and even light attack versions similar to the TA/A/F-50 family.  Such a development might even provide an interesting option to replace French Sepecat Jaguars.

I totally agree with your idea Greg :smiley:

And looking what you said, I'm considering to switch country for a french one  :P
I have to check the spare decals.

Edit: after checking my spare decals, I found what to do an aircraft of the EC 4/30 "Artois" (formely 1/13 "Artois" on Mirage F-1CT)  8)
