Well, it looks like I am going to be able to get my hands on some Artic Aggressor decals, so now I need to know how to do the conversion.

I have read the posts here and on other forums, but I am a little confused.

I want to do the black/grey/white version of the aggressor F-16.

First, which is the best kit to get? On some post I have read the F-16 Thunderbirds, on others the current ket. I can get either (have already found sources).

On some of the post it sounds like people are swapping parts between those two kits. I would have a hard time justifying buying two kits to get one plane. So I am asking which is the better kit to start with, and what changes would need to be made. I am hoping these changes could be gotten through aftermarket parts, so if there are any specific recommendations for those that would be greatly appreciated as well.

OK, so I have read some reviews on the Thunderbirds kit, and they say it makes a Block 32. Is there anything that needs to be changed if I start with the Thunderbirds kit?
