  1. The F-16C is currently showing at £45 on back order and it's the same plastic as the A kit. All you would need are decals.
  2. Available for pre order on Jadlam for £53.95 including postage.
  3. There are two different upper rear fuselage parts on the sprue, one is for the A/B version and the other is for the C/D. The same sprue is included in both the A and C kits. The plastic in both boxes is the same, you simply choose the parts depending on whether you build the A or C versions.
  4. I bought both boxings at Telford for £50 each and another online from Hannants for £45.

  6. F-4G instructions here https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/9/6/8/1440968-46-instructions.pdf No strengthening strap on the lower surface but there is always https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/FLV48008?result-token=UyrH8 I notice that the kit has both the ALQ-119 and ALQ-131 pods included. During Desert Storm, the US based 561st TFS carried the long ALQ-184 pod https://www.dstorm.eu/pages/loadout/f-4.html which is not included although it is in the Tamiya 1/48 F-16 kits as well as the new Kinetic F-16AM &C and some of the first-generation Kinetic F-16 kits. In aftermarket it's been produced by Wolfpack Design and is also in Hasegawa Weapons set E.
  7. You mean you weren't able to glean that from the topic title where it says Hasegawa rebox?

  9. As I'm working on the kit, I can say unequivocally that the fit is excellent. So far, it's been as good as the Pucara. On the subject of the strengthening plates, I would like to point out that the Tamiya 1/48 kit F-16C/N does not include the plates which have to be purchased separately. If Kinetic had moulded these on to the kit, then they would have had to either tool fuselage/wing parts both with and without strengthening plates in different configurations as not all F-16 variants carried all the plates. This would have been cost prohibitive and would have run the risk of the moulding of the plates being decried as being too much! (eg the Tamiya F-35A RAM tape hoo-ha. Weapons/stores not included, again there has to be a limit to what can be included. to have every weapon/pod would have required a cost and there would have been complaints about too much or a waste of plastic. If you're a serious modeller of modern jets then you probably have spares you can dip into or there's always the aftermarket option.
  10. Great pictures, as always thanks for posting them.
  11. I've found an error in the instructions for the AM. In section 26 the instructions advise that Belgian and Dutch F-16s use the same tail extension parts which is incorrect. They should advise that the Norwegian and Dutch options use the same parts.
  12. I've found an error in the instructions about which tail extension to use for which nationality . In Section 26 the instructions specify the same extension for both the Belgian and Dutch aircraft when it should be the same one for the Dutch and Norwegian aircraft.
  13. The F-16ADF has differently shaped IFF antenna than the MLU. http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/planes/q0286b.shtml
