Jos Jansen Good and interesting story about the history of the F-16N series, thanks for sharing this...

Nathan Dempsey Great subject and a great article too. In the article I like the one painted tan and black.

Daniel F-16N - nice!
@Nathan: I agree, that looks somehow really elegant
9. August at 13:12:11
Nathan Dempsey @Daniel: Right? I almost want to buy one just to try and build that bird. I did buy and F-5F and will try and complete this one for the group build as well. Love those Florida aggressors from VFC-111.

Hans Robben Nice scheme!

Maciej Bellos A difficult one, especially with the walkways. I love it nonetheless.
27. August at 13:49:20
Sergej I Thanks, Hans.
Maciej, I haven't decided entirely on the walkways method, this being a 1:72, decals are still an option... but AK RC paints are a pleasure to work with, can take heavy taping and weathering without the lacquer protection so... let's see :)

Dejan Lukic Hello Sergej.. Just a heads up. If You intend to build BDU splinter keep in mind that is USAF Blk 30 bird and not USN F-16N. N version had small intake mouth, u will need big one for Blk 30. Any chance both intakes are in kit?
27. August at 19:50:25
Maciej Bellos I concur. Block 30s got the big mouth intake after 86-0262. Before that, all F-16s had the same intake later called NSI.
27. August at 20:21:13
Sergej I Thanks for the heads up, Dejan. Indeed the Hasegawa kit only includes the small intake, but for the Splinter F-16C I got the CMK 7053 Exterior set with large resin intake and some other parts.
I will also use the other parts for the F-16N, except the intake.
Have to study the nozzle aswel. The wa I understood is, that F-16N already had a stronger engine and nozzle like F-16C. Is that about right?
27. August at 20:28:27
Dejan Lukic Nozzle is ok for Blk30 General Electric F110 and 18th Aggressor squadron (AK). 64th Aggressors (WA) Block 32 F-16C's have the P&W F100-PW-220 engine and different nozzle.
27. August at 21:12:31
Sergej I Hvala Dejan! Thanks for clearing this :)
27. August at 21:44:03
Sergej I Just dumping both airframes to be built:

Also found out I will need to scratch improvise the RWR "beer can" antennas on the splinter aswel, Hasegawa model is a Block30C with antennas on the fuselage. Might rework the RWR's from intake and position them on front wing where the Block30D have them...
