F-16A Block 20 with "Sun God" totem and CBI insignia.

View images (37): | | List

The Sun God totem is an aboriginal totem of Amis people of Taiwan.
I have written an article that briefly describes the bulding process in my native language (traditional Chinese).

Google translate may help you.



This album is attached to project Lockheed/Martin F-16A Block 20 in Taiwan.

Tzonglin Wu Thank you all.
Please forgive me for my poor English.
This is my first time leaving my native language and joining an international community. Because the resources here are really rich.
In fact, this F-16A has been in progress for a while, almost 85% completion.
I will put the past photos here after they are found.
This model is an experiment for me. I used some techniques which were learned from Youtube. I think that it is very fun.

Patrick Hagelstein This is an international community and you're not the only one doubting his or her language skills. We all had our doubts one time or the other; you'll be fine! We are far more interested in model building skills and you posses a fair amount of those! :D Your F-16 looks splendid so far and the YouTube lessons paid off for sure! Looking forward to you progress. :)

Tzonglin Wu Patrick, thank you for your encouragement. It puts my mind at ease.

Tzonglin Wu Some earlier photos have been upload to this album. Please feel free to take a look.

Patrick Hagelstein The bare plastic pilot in the Revell kit could never thrill me that much, so I went for aftermarket pilots whenever I wanted an occupied cockpit. Looking at picture 6 and 7 though, that pilot really looks good when painted! I need to take that into consideration for my next Viper builds.

Patrick Hagelstein Oh! By the way, you're welcome! :)
11. September at 18:03:09

Patrick Hagelstein Like the 313 Viper as well! :D
30. September at 14:50:56
Patrick Hagelstein Good to see the progress Revell made with their new tooling.
30. September at 14:51:51
Tzonglin Wu Thank you, Patrick. 313 Viper and ROCAF are both F-16A block 20. Almost the same in the appearance. Taiwan will get F-16 C/D block 70 maybe in 2023. Although I don't like its "muscle feeling", I think that I will still make a 1/72 one in the future.

Patrick Hagelstein Almost..... ROCAF is unique in that it is the only Block 20 user worldwide. That 313 Sqn F-16A was a Block 15 at that time (before the MLU that made it a F-16AM) the only distinguishing feature between a Block 15 and a Block 20 is the panel right at the tip of the root of the vertical stabilizer; on the Blocks 5 up to 15 it is a trapezoid, on Block 20 it's an oval. The F-16C Block 25 had a bigger root that extended further forward and covered that panel. Just some details. ;)

Patrick Hagelstein F-16A/B Vertical Tail Set & (Kasl Hobby K48078, 1:48)
The Kasl Hobby update is specifically a Block 20. If you look closely at the fuselage plug, you'll see the oval panel.
