Nice job, Jamie. Wish I could have made it, but had to work. Maybe next time.

I bought it from BVM as a PNP.

(How's that for my best attempt at preventing this thread from becoming polluted!)

Awesome Jamie, my f-16 ships this week can't wait. Patty as usual does such a great job of keeping me informed on Its progress.
I love the thunderbird but love the on the mission look like yours. Mine is in the Montana guard scheme, will have to deck it out with Sean's goodies. Your lights look awesome. I noticed you have flap/ailerons, this has been debated allot.

Thanks for the comments, guys. I thought the lights and A/B ring looked pretty cool in the late afternoon.

I have been using flaps for takeoff and landing since maiden flight and have had good success with them. Dustin said to use them and so I have. I have not tried a landing without them so I can not really give a comparison. I have been mainly flying full ordnance but this past weekend I removed the tanks and HARM (left the rails on) just to see how it flew in that config. Honestly I don't think it flew too much different but I was less nervous about flying more aggressively ... I'm always scared I'm going to blow off a tank or something when fully loaded. It was about 33.75 lbs dry in the configuration in the videos.

I have landed it with flaps and without flaps. It lands pretty much the same other then more drag with the flaps down. I dont use any for takeoff.

Hey guys make sure you come down and fly with Jamie and the gang at his event near the end of October. As you can see the grass is very nice and the people there are awesome.

I am going to be there!

Very nice Jamie!
i lost a wing tank once in flight and didn't realize it until after I landed. Lol.
I usually fly with the wing tanks on and all the pylons. Haven't tried it with the belly tank yet, but hope to the next time I have a chance to fly from pavement. There isn't much clearance under it....but that's true to scale.

Hi Sean-
Any chance you are going to do your F-16 detail kit for the 1/5th SM ?
Thanks-Mike O.

Mike, I've had a number of requests for 1/5th parts but I recently saw a SM photo from the factory that included what looked like all or certainly most of the items I offer for the 1/6 scale f-16. I think this is good news for SM owners because the fit should be really good.

I was able to display my F-16 at McEntire SCANG base Family Day last Saturday. This is the base that I modeled my F-16 after. After the "Viper East" F-16 flight demo I got to fly mine. It was a true honor to be able to share a small part of our hobby with these heroes and their families.

From a while back with big brother...


Scenes from last Saturday ... they are changing their paint scheme over to the one displayed below.

We're a USAF family, so it's very cool to see pics of model and full scale together.

Thanks for your service and I agree! Very rewarding to be able to put it beside the full scale! What amazes me is how in awe the pilots and crew members are of the model while I'm in complete awe of them and the full scale.
