Hi Wellzy

To do a proper F-16N, you must have a GE engine - the kit you use have only the PW engine. Visually the difference is very noticable.

If you have a Hasegawa F-16C Block 30 or 50, you will have what you need, if not there are plenty of aftermarket alternatives available.

I believe it needs a different intake as well.

Edit: This should do. Linky Bit pricy though, especially is you need a new rear end.

The intake is correct, but the engines are different.

I've just checked. You are quite correct. The intake on F-16Ns is the small one, so Wellzy's kit is perfectly fine. It will still need the GE back end though.

So... basically the F-16N is a weird mutant! :lol: Should make an interesting model.

Wellzy,

I just dug my Academy kit out and put the Aires F-16C Block 20/40/50/60 can (The correct one for an F-16N) against it. It is almost a perfect fit, which isn't a surprise as the Academy fuselage is identical in size to the Hasegawa one (read what you like from that, a clone maybe). The Aires F-16N cockpit would also fit without any problems if you wanted to go that far. I'll post a picture later to show how close a fit that the exhaust is.

Easily do-able from the kit you have and I'm tempted to have a bash for this group build, if I get the other 2 done in time

Great start Wellzy,

As promised, picture of Aires exhaust on same kit as yours: -

With a little bit of sanding it will work perfectly. If anything it's an easier fit than on the Hasegawa.

I got the impression when I dry fitted mine together that filler would be a good friend for the build. Perseverence pays off though Wellzy and you're making good progress.
