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)

Thanks guys, I appreciate  :D

I made some more paint today:
- working the grey with various shade (A/C, pylon & drop tanks)
- GBU-12 and MICA done
- painting of the APU exhaust







Tomorrow, I'll start the washing and decal if I can. Hope to finish it for next week end for my next exhibition  :-*

Hi guys,

Update of the day:
- Washing done
- decals done



Starting from tomorrow, I will apply a satin varnish on the A/C and start to finish the paint on small part (seat, wheels, afterburner tunnel, etc...) before the final assembly.
I don't know if I will have time to update during the week, so my next post will probably be the finished model  :smiley:

Hi guys,

The TA-50F is done.

Thanks Greg to make me switch from my original idea to this new one  :smiley:


















Some photos are a bit dark, I will make new one once I will be back  ;)

Hope you like it.

About the only thing I would have done differently would be the placement of the fuselage roundel.  I note that you have gone for a similar placement to that on their Rafales:



wheels I might have gone something similar (i.e. more rearward) like that done for the Mirage 2000s and Mirage F-1s:




Personal preference though and not a criticism against your wonderful build. :smiley:

Thanks for yor feedback, I appreciate  :D

Greg, in fact, it was my first idea too. In LH side, it will have been OK but on the RH side, the APU exhaust will have been right under and I didn't found this good on my point of view. But after your intervention, I notice that I was too focused on the ROKAF roundel position and maybe if I had opted for a little bit more forward position (just in front of the APU inlet), it will have been good at the rear :-[
I still have a project for a french AF Alphajet replacement aircraft (so a strict trainer as the T-50 and not TA-50), so I keep your idea in mind for it  :smiley:

Everything is packed for this WE exhibition and I also take the box of what will be probably the next project: a ROCAF F-16B to go with my ROCAF F-5E done last year and one of the F-CK-1 I have in stash (the other one will be a what-if  :P)

Jolly nice buld!  :smiley:

For some reason, this angle made me think of the AMX immediately. Hmmmm, single-seat KAI T-50 with more fuel in place of the backseater? Either deciacted single-seater canopy (AMX) or same profile (Mitsubishi F-1/T-2 analogue)?

Cheers,

Thanks guys  :D

So far, good feedback from people at the exhibition (a lot of question from visitors not used to "what-if"), will next exhibition this week-end for more feedback. On the french forum Master194.com, good feedback too even if there are not fan of what-if :smiley:

The single seater does exist... at least on the drawing board as a proposal for the KF-X program :P

But your idea to replace the back seat by more fuel (or relocated electronics) sounds good to me (something similar to L-39 to L159 or even Mitsubishi T-2 to F-1  :-* )

I started to work on the F-16B last WE and... put it back in the box  ;D
Instead, I think I will go for something more exotic... a ROCAF AIDC F-CK-1C from FMK


https://www.scalemates.com/kits/freedom-model-kits-18005-f-ck-1c-ching-kuo--1070657

For the moment, I'm looking for some documentation for the cockpit, wheels bays and to confirm the paint chart given in the assembly guide.

Hi guys,

Looks like I forgot to post here my latest build... Sorry about that  :-[

So I finished a few weeks ago an MQ-47B of the JASDF in the 2 tones blue scheme:













Platz/Italeri in 1/72 scale.

Not sure yet about what will be my next build as I'm preparing my moving to a new apartment. So the only objective for this year will be to do a F-104 from Kinetic (challenge build with some friend).
