It did in the last F-16 STGB but it’s up to Col. to make the ultimate decision. 

Will definitely build an F-16 regardless, but I keep eyeing off the Fine Molds 1/72 F-2 kits too. 🤔🤣

Cheers  Wellzy 

The two-seat machines have always looked so different to my eye over the single seat ones so it'll be good to see your choice take shape :thumbsup:

2025? I'm in. Have always had plans to depict a 'Banja Luka' F-16, good incentive to do so now.

You are indeed in :D

Yes it does Gerard, good point raising the question, go grab that Fine Molds kit ;)

I keep threatening myself with a 1:32 jet build. If this gets through, I'll treat myself. Another for the list :wink: 

Far be it from me to deny someone the chance to do a bit of stash augmentation :D

Somehow missed this - count me in, have a couple of Tamiya kits lurking about.

A change of mind - mind you, if I bring this little cutie with me?

 A perfect excuse to delay and not build this in the US Navy GB this year :giggle:. V-P

An aggressor or adversary machine will always be made most welcome in this GB V-P. Nice subject choice :speak_cool:

Would like to show up at the merge with a NAWDC / NSAWC Viper or the Top Gun Hotrod from a Tamiya 1/48 boxing. 🌞

Well, totday I am in the sign-up mood... Count me in here too.

 

It will be a USAFE Viper... either from Hahn AB or Ramstein AB...

 

In you come :speak_cool:

 

There's certainly plenty of schemes to choose from the continuing history of F-16 operations and the USAFE is a classic.

It would be rude not to.  :) 

 

Firstly, there is that wonderful camouflage.  Secondly, the fact that they regularly carry the CFTs changes the character of the F-16 considerably.

I'm really hoping we get a gallery showing everything from the initial YF-16 light-weight fighter concept through to the latest fully loaded versions from this GB.

I already have one in progress, unfortunately without CFTs, which in my opinion disturb the shape of the plane.

Yes it is. The first attempt was not successful, so the project is halt at the moment. It is a bit difficult to handle such large decals and their alignment is tricky. I bought a new set of decals, I will pell of the paint and start over again.
