The Skymaster F-16 1/6 is very scale and fly's very good. The landing gear is awesome... Also the Aviation design seems to be very scale as well as the Avonds F-16.

What is not scale about it? I would like to know. Especially as it compares to other kits available in the market.

I HAVE SEEN BOTH THE TAMJETS AND SKYMASTER F16.
THERE ARE SMALL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM BUT BOTH LOOK GOOD.
AS FAR AS THE SCALE ASPECT, IF YOU WANT TO BE COMPETITIVE AT A TOP LEVEL IN SCALE THEN THESE
AIRFRAMES MAY NEED SOME RUBBING AND TUGGING, IF YOU JUST WANT A STAND OFF SCALE MODEL
THEN THESE WILL DO THE TRICK

Hi Andy,

Last weekend SA Nationals F16 1/6 came 3rd in F4J ahead of Airworld Hawk! It scored 1100 points for static. And this has got to do a lot with documentation.

Anton already is busy changing the nose to make it more scale. If you buy the basic white gelcoat model and marry it with good documentation, you will have a competitive model.

Regards

Morne

I just bought the Skymaster 1/6 F-16 Thunderbird. I thought it would be easier to see in flight and It matches my Boomerang Thunderbird scheme.

In the future Tam will also have a 1/6 scale. Brice has flown the model. But I am not sure how scale it is.

Actually , I believe Tam canned the 1/6th scale and Im pretty sure Brice flew the Skymaster 1/6th.
Bummed to hear Tam can the 1/6th.

I think its way too much money and work to get it done then have a factory rip off your design.

That 1/6 scale F-16 landing gear is expensive and You know they have cut it as low as they can.
And the Jet is just worthless without it.

Hi friends:


I like to much JetLegend. It's not so expensive as Skymaster and I think that is the same scale.


Regards from Spain.
