Can anyone identify the crest painted on the main gear cover in this photograph:

USAF F-16A block 1 #78-0002 from the 16th TFTS is parked on the tarmac at Hill AFB. Note the large crest on the landing gear door. [Er-Ning Chang collection]

I would like to find an image of it so that I can duplicate it on a scale model.

This jet is (at the time) assigned to the 57th TFW, Det 16 at Hill AFB, UT. This is the crest for the Multinational Operational Test & Evaluation unit which was made up of Personnel from the USAF and the three EPAF personnel. Microscale had a sheet with decal.
