This is the third F-16, the F-16 D (Barak).

 

I built the F-16 D Block 40 "Barak 2" No. 687 from the Scorpion Squadron.

 

The kit in 1/48 is from Kinetik. Additional parts are from Aires (cockpit, wheel bay and exhaust), Dr. Pepper (Sidewinder), Isracast (fuel tank 600 gallons) and Eduard (masks and etched parts and the ladder).

 

External stores are:

Station 1/9: 2 AIM 9 L Sidewinder

Station 2/8: 2 Python 4

Station 3/7: 2 JADAM (GBU-31)

Station 4/6: 2 Fuel tank 600 Gallons

Station 5: 1 Fuel tank 300 Gallons

 

The original is from the book of Ofer Zidon „ Israeli Air Force Cutting Edge“on page 18. However, in the book the stations 2 and 8 are empty.

A nice build, always good to see Modern Jets in less typical schemes than the boring grays we too often see.
