squadron and plane

2005年7月に設立された第57仮想敵戦術航空群(以下57ATG)は、第64仮想敵飛行隊(以下64AGRS)を含む7つの飛行隊を擁します。 敵機に打ち勝つため、64AGRSはアメリカ空軍と同盟国空軍に空戦訓練とその技能同様、クラスルーム訓練(訳者注:コンピューターを用いた机上の訓練等)をも提供します。 2016年8月5日、57ATGの指揮交代時に F-16C 85-1418 の新たなスキーム「スプリンター」迷彩が披露されました。

The 57th Adversary Tactics Group (ATG) was established in July 2005 consisting of seven components including the 64th Aggressor Squadron. The 64th AGRS provides USAF and allied aircrews with class room training as well as airborne training and techniques to overcome their adversaries. On August 5, 2016 to coincide with the change of command for the 57th ATG, F-16C 85-1418 was shown for the first time wearing the new “Splinter” paint scheme.

Good Points *Exact outline
*Antennas and probes are not omitted
*Accurate panel lines

*Landing gears can be removed easily for flying position
Bad Points *Engine nozzle: dullness mold and painting
*Pilot figure is not bad, but I wish it is more sharpness molding.

*The canopy can be displayed with opened or closed. But, the small protrusion under the canopy frame and a big hinge make this model like a toy.

Splinter Scheme Models

今回のレビューで取り上げたF-16Cのスプリンターペイントスキームは、スホーイSu-35に適用されているスキームを模したものです。 ホビーマスターは多くのアドバーサリー/アグレッサー機のモデルを手がけています。 その中でも、私はスプリンターペイントスキームモデルが好みです。 今後、コレクションに HA4556 を加える予定でいます。

The splinter paint scheme of this review's F-16C is meant to represent the scheme used on the Sukhoi Su-35. Hobby Master makes many Adversary or Aggressor diecast models. Among them, I love models wearing the splinter paint scheme. After this, I'll add HA4556 to my collection.
