Hi,
Lenght 2.5meters, this model may seem out of size here.

But I hope to get valued input from many scale experts about building a proper scale f-16 of this size.

This is no.1 a/c kit in single seater.

Hopefully I able to build the two seater w/spine model somewhere down the learning curve.

Cheers!

What are the specifics? Scratchbuilt, or kit built?

LEN : 2.4meters, WS :1.63meters.

scale down from the early A model, the early f/s lenght @ 14.52m rather the latest @ 15.**meters.
Anyone know where the latest increase lenght from?

Model is almost fully assembled.
to avoid the huge moulding works and space, those will probably take another 24 months back to get where now is. This will be the platform to up scale on.
Shall skip the R/C spec as it irrelevant here.

I was hoping you would give the specifics on the r/c setup and equipment.

Yeah, would be a bright model in the. So I take it's some what of an ARF kit?

BTW, it has the wrong tail dorsal, as it should be the smaller A/B type w/para brake, :)

This size of model need to be driven by a turbine jet and at least thrust o/p of 16kg >

Digital servos (Fly By Wire) for all control surfaces esp Elev.

Prefer powerbox with dual Rx for secure signal Tx/Rx.

Ok, making the new fin with chute housing in progress and show later.

any data on dorsal fins position? Does the underbelly outline look scale?

I brought another 1/6 model year ago and found the this part of belly was too fat.. I sold it away after found out this outline error.

Kind of hard to see the dorsal fins from that angle.

Nice models.I must say that this is one of the best models that I have seen in a long time.While the directions way understate the amount of time spent on making these models. It is turned out to be a beautiful models.
