Fuel cells instalation...
I used wood brackets to secure all cells - 2 saddles, 1 front main (on the bottom) and the smoke tank is installed using brackets glued on the saddles, like a rail.
All easily removable with screws.

Ziv,

I like your tank mounting system. Nicely done. Where did you put your ECU fuel pump and and smoke pump?

Hi Gary,

I placed the UAT, smoke pump and fuel pump on a triangular tray I built just behind the front trays.
You can see in the pics the location where its gonna be.
I have not received my turbine yet (Jetcat P300RX) so the fuel pump will be there also on a mounting tray.

Still lots of work, but now I have figured everything so I am moving forward quickly.

Cheers,
Ziv

Ziv, Great work on the fuel tank brackets. I am currently building the same 1/5th scale F-16. I will incorporate your simply yet serviceable brackets. Which tank are your using for your smoke tank?

Hi Rod,

Thanks..
I am using the top round tank for smoke.

In the meantime, I am working on my weathering. I realy like this process as the plane come to life...
Working on the rudder and fuselage now - the front part.

Some pics..

Nice weathering Ziv, looks fantastic. What paint did you use to do the weathering in the rivets?

Hi Craig,

I am using the TAMIYA acrylic paint. water based.
I am using matt black for the bright colors, and Sky Grey for the darker color to create contrast.
Dilute with water, brush it into the rivets. let dry for 2 minutes, wipe of the excess, and then water-sand it with 1000 grit foam based sanding paper until you get the desired effect.
Takes hours and hours - but the result is great.
If you want I can create a short video for you.

Cheers,
Ziv

Thanks for the info Ziv. Good to know. I was curious because many use oil based paints but that might be a problem if you ever have to paint over oil based with a solvent based paint for repairs. Water based....no issue. Yours looks fantastic. About to do my f14.

please do make a vid...always great to see what others do.

F-16 1/5 updated

We now supply kit with new equipment tray. If 1:5 F-16 owners want to get this equipment tray, it can be free and you only need to pay freight.,

A note on your setup ...
its not advisable to only drop the LE on the wing without dropping the flaperons too ...

When pulling elevator above 35%, the plane is in high alpha condition, the LE flaps are droped for preventing airflow seperating from up wing surface and inhance low speed performance.

Not accurate , flaps drop too along with LE .. otherwise you are actually flying at a lower AOA . lowering the LE without the flaperon is creating a pitch down force due to changing the airfoil cord incidence relative to thrust line . The reason for adding LE flap to a wing is to achieve a better CL max and AOA Capability of a wing always coupled with the wing TE flaps . Second is to achieve a better CL MAX of a wing without forcing the tilt of the entire aircraft thus blocking the pilot's view forward.

please check this video , it was second flight, this way will can make very flexible aerobatic, We had over 10 F16 1/5 in Taiwan , all customers like the Likai 's set up , because we test flight this way over hundred time with 3 F16 1/5 (included prototype) ., not theoretical only.,
