"The Modern Viper Guide: The F-16C/D Exposed" The DACO book is good for what it is, but it's got a lot of problems. For starters, it does a lousy job of differentiating from one Block to the next. Through no fault of its own, it is also outdated. It doesn't even mention modern upgrades and/or weapons such as CUPID, CCIP, LITENING, Sniper, AIM-9X, JDAM, WCMD, etc.

That it doesn't Jake, but it's still the best we got for now. Though I've no doubt you can dethrone it.

Hello, I'd like to refresh this topic as I am coming back from the dark side of scale modeling where I spent past 15 years. I got this kit before the break and I'd like to build it as real as possible, so I am doing the research for this particular airframe. There's a picture in the gallery where was said that it's s/n 85-1446, but every other picture of that particular Viper has slightly different marking (red-black band on the tail fin, serial number on the aft fuselage, missing the text F-16C Block 40 No. 1, etc.). Some say it's not the same airframe. Would you please point me in the right direction for some sound data? Maybe some publication, magazine and such. Any other picture of this bird would be extremely helpful.


Night Falcon, or the F-16C #85-1446 which is an block 30 made to look like a block 40 as a demonstrator. Note the Lantirn pods on the chin stations. [LMTAS photo]

Thank you edpop, are you 100% sure it's the same airframe? There was some dispute under the picture here http://www.f-16.net/g3/f-16-photos/album38/album10/abu

According to this site 85-1446 is a block 30 that was shown at Farnborough as a Block 40/42 Night Falcon. See below.

Looking through one of my World Airpower Journals, dated Fall/Autumn 1995, they have a large article on F-16 variants. They have the same picture you have (top colored one) and under it says this is the first Block 40 Night Falcon made. Then they list all the serial numbers and the first official Block 40 Night Falcon is 87-0350. Hope some of this helps.

Thank you very much. Now if only I can find other pictures than the Aviano marking :) Thank you once again, I'm going to search for more pictures.
