Giorgio, not all is lost, there is a year long Group Build run by Enzo called 'They Also Serve' for those subjects that did not get through

 

 

Plus this one is automatically in next year's vote

@Giorgio N as the original GB "owner" and @Rabbit Leader as the "They Also Serve" Host of The Year 2020, please rule this these kits´ eligibility, please. They are the F-16:s I started some years ago in their STGB but miserably failed to finish (surprise, surprise!). Here are some pics of their current state. I have decals for Norwegian, Danish, Dutch, Belgian and Portuguese AM:s and shop for Italian B ADF decals, found in some Italeri kits. So, definitely "Yanks Abroad". They are all Revell 1:72 kits, 1 x A, 1 x B, 2 x MLU and 2 x C. I mixed up parts molded in various colours to get that "Matchbox feeling"  :thumbsup:.

Fuselage subassemblies started. All will be displayed "legs up".

This is not the only box of parts for these kits... Plus I have a Hasegawa weapons and pods set I need too. Best regards, V-P

Well "if" I was the host, I would declare all these F-16's as being well under the 25% eligibility rule. It would be great to see all these built up in NATO colours V.P. 

Cheers.. Dave (the non committing host)

Nice group @vppelt68 !

Knowing the Revell kit, these to me all look well below the 25% limit, as really there has been very little assembly done. And of course all subjects would be eligible as US designed/built aircraft in foreign service

The first two will also work for the Scandi GB ;) Plus, if you want a little longer, there's the option of working on them under the unofficial year-long 90s NATO section in the 'They Also Serve' GB :D

Let's not forget the Dutch F-16AM that shot down a Serbian MiG-29 in Bosnia, the first real AMRAAM kill anywhere I believe. Wasn' t that one of those Small Wars?
