Hi guys.Question for the experts-years ago I bought Hasegawa's V8-1/48 F-16 Night Falcon,to convert to a Block 50.............I never did anything with it,and now,of course,we have the new Tamiya CJ..............so,I believe V8 is actually a Block 30......does anyone have a suggestion on what to do with this thing?It's certainly a nice kit..........

Thanks! :D

Out of the box, you can make a Block 25 an early Block 30, or Block 32 out of it. It does not have the MCID intake for later Block 30s. But you can do any Block 32. Yeah, they still are pretty good kits, but their 24-year reign has finally come to an end with the release of the Tam kit.

Yeah-I decided to make a Block 32-looking at decals-I'm either gonna do a 64 Aggressor(Afterburner)-a 414 CTS(Two Bobs 48-001 F-16 C Fighting Fulcrums)or 194 FS( Two Bobs 48-098 F-16C Golden State Griffins).

Thanks Habu! :thanks:

There are a couple little things to remember when making a Block 25, which the TB sheet depicts. No scoop or vents on the tailbase.
