The F-16D showed a brown rectangle attachment on the starboard CFT.

Don't know about the starboard side, it's not visible in that photo. I do see a dark rectangle on the PORT CFT :wink: but I don't know what it represents...

What I did find out at about Hasegawa is that the fact that there is a distributor/importer in a particular country dictates what models will come out. F.i. a few years back hasegawa bought out versions of their models with Swiss decals. Some years there was no importer so no models with Swiss decals came out. Now there is one again and see the list: some three Swiss models have been announced.

So If we want a Greek or Singaporean version of the Hase Viper then the only hopes would be a good distributor/importer who can lobby. The Dutch airforce have been a regular subject and for your we ahve a good importer (Overbeek BV).

Now that Israel has a importer/distrubutor one can see lost of hasegawa models with Israeli decals.
Correct me if I'm wrong about this!!!

Bogey Dope, are you sure? That's rather far forward on the jet to mount a dispenser. Not to mention mounting pyrotechnics on a fuel tank...

We talked about this in the F-16I thread IIRC, its the ventilation for the gun.

Well, to be honest I didn't check the photo, but I assumed he was reffering to the flare/chaff dispenser. Ok, my fault.
