Hi all,

I've been wanting to build a large-scale Arctic Aggressor F-16 for a while now, and I've managed to pick up a 1/32 Hasegawa F-16A kit for cheap on eBay. simple question, what am I going to need to do to mod it into a C block 30?

Thanks!

Hmm, Probably not the best kit to purchase for building a Blk 30.

To build a C model Blk 30 You'll need alot of parts

1. Aftermarket F-16C cockpit
2. The larger C model tail
3. Large horizontal Stabs.
4 depending on serial # of the jet, May need to purchase a (MCID) Large mouth intake?
5. GE Exhaust nozzle
6. Aftermarket wheels
7. (RHAW) Antennas "Beer Cans" for the leading edge flaps
These are some that I can think off the top of my head. Honestly, I would look into buying an Academy 1/32 F-16 kit (Either the C/J or the New Blk 40 boxing) You will have the parts to pretty much any Blk F-16 that you want.
Gonna pass this link off to ya, It may help with your build?

Good luck http://zone-five.net/showthread.php?t=231

Agreed; not the best kit to consider building a Block F-16C from. You'd be much better off starting with a 32nd Hasegawa F-16C.

You'll need the CE MCID intake; good lcuk fidning one though as Its been OOP for quite some time.
