Right side in progress.

Rivet/screw detail left wing.



I think that the right side will go faster, just mirroring the left.

What an amazing job Peter! If you don't mind me asking, what material did you use to create the body under the aluminiun? was it wood ? I am not an expert atall, Ijust admire the work you guys do, and maybe I'll try to do a smaller version one day

Under the aluminium sits EPS foam than two layers epoxy glassing and epoxy filler. The bulkheads are a cheap wood.

Last things before the Airshow in Holland.

Right wing almost finished and the radome is painted.



The pitot is 258 mm long, thats why it is called the viagra boom .

Thanks Carlos .
I see on your site that there will be a F16 D in the future, If I can get some good 3d pictures or drawings I am going to make the back tanks also. Than my B will look like a D .

Greetings,
Peter

Peter:

I will make the D and Block 60 version from any kit. I have a Yellow F-16, but I no want spent my time in this little jet. Do you think sell your model ? Would be a interesting solution.

Really the 1:5 scale is excellent size, but I need a lot of money, too much money. The best option for my pocket is 1:6, more cheap.

Regards from Spain.

Carlos Márquez.

Carlos, details4scale has the 1/6th Block 60 conversion kit. I think you can get the completely retrofitted model for like $6K.

Hi:

I look the site of Details 4 scale and only find that in soon they will have 2 seats version, but nothing over block 60 version. Have you the web page ?

In any case I would be long enough to have a f-16.

BR.

Finally the bird is out of the cage , A lot of interest among the military personal. The aluminium looks different in daylight, very nice.

The first big panels on the belly are in place, real big gear doors . They are about 50 cm.





Also did some drawing, made the LAU 129 for the tips.

Yes, Danny's book shows a lot and sometimes it has just a detail which I forgot to make a picture of. Met him last Airshow at Leeuwarden Airbase taking a lot of pictures
Spent last wednesday 2.5 hours under a F16 to make pictures and measurements.... and missed a spot . Danny's book showed the panel.

The airco panel, the cover will be a extra item.

At 120 kg the piece, you'd need a pretty hefty engine to fly it.

4 x BF 300 , rocketing it sky high.

It took me some time to make the panel besides the intake. Visited again the base for more info and here is the result.











Got a tip from somebody about a real F16 bulkhead, it was fore sale. I bought it!! I think that I am going to use this for alu parts It is not used, has a milling fault.
I think that it's position is between the last fuel panels. But a contact on the base will look it up for me what the exact position is and wich alu it is made off.
