Hi there HTH

The pylons have evolved a lot over the years and are known under different names. In recent years several other nations have adapted the pylon-based solution. Here´s a link to the producer's website: https://www.terma.com/media/362889/pylon_based_ew_solutions_letter.pdf

There's some info on p. 5 of this TERMA brochure,

 

https://www.terma.com/media/105013/integrated_electronic_warfare_self-protection_solutions_for_all_types_fo_aircraft_-_brochure.pdf

 

Also, see halfway here, under "Pylon Integrated Dispenser".

 

Cheers,

 

Andre 

Thanks Andre

 

Now I understand those were included on Revells F-16A/B Falcon in 1/72 scale

 

Best day

The earlier PIDS pylons are included, in all RoG new tool F-16 boxings, but not the later "warty"  ones in the TERMA brochure.

 

Cheers,

XF-1 is flat black so that would need to be glossed up a bit to represent one of the early blocks with the black nose.
XF-54 is close to FS36270 if I recall correctly. That could be an option for the later blocks. Again, tonal variation to the radomes ranged from deep grey to light grey. Here´s an example for ET-204. Same airframe in all the photos - yet multiple shades on the radome:

I do have Tamiya X-1, but I was expecting it to be too glossy for the nose. On closer inspection I do have XF-24 Dark grey as well as possible nose color. So many different nose cones, so much choice! :)

I can't find any info quickly on different types of wing fuel tanks on f-16.net, but I do have a Revell Belgian F-16 MLU (03905) for comparison, and Heller's fuel tanks are of equal size. So that either means both kits got the fuel tanks wrong, or they're the right ones. Heller's kit doesn't come with a centerline tank, but instead is supplied with an ECM pod, likely the ALQ-119 jammer.

 

Apologies, I was working from memory and should have checked my stash (or Scalemates). The large tanks (370 gal) in the Airfix kit are correct depictions of the production design. It's Italeri (and Testors) whose early F-16 kits include the FSD style. (I believe the original Revell kit - unrelated to the later Revell AG gem you have - also featured the early tanks).

Italeri later redid their molds to represent the production wing tanks. However, most kits (Italeri, Fujimi, Hasegawa) feature triangular aft fins - only the RoG mold has the correct cropped ones.
