Dixit French forum Master194 while everybody is talking about the soon to release TamiyAMK Tomcats, Tamiya would have unveiled at the current at IPMS/USA Nationals a 1/48th LM F-16D two seats Viper sprue.
True or fake? Still waiting for a reliable source.

To be followed

It is very likely to be fake.

The opening for the rear cockpit is too short. The hinge for the canopy should be in line with the gun cover panel but it stops short. The hump should also end nearer the break in the fuselage but it is obviously too short as well. I'm pretty sure Tamiya would not make such huge dimensional errors.
