Just curious, the 94-0047 current ACC F-16 demo jet named Venom is listed as HGV in here.
Was it HGV before got new paint or the new paint "Venom" is the HGV?

No, Venom is not a new paint scheme nor HG5. It is a special paint scheme derived from/building on the HG5 scheme playing on the Viper nickname of the F-16.

Basically the topside coating is the normal HG5 with Venom patern applied. The bottom side is a lighter gray (not HG5) but with the same Venom scheme applied to mirror the topside.

So 94-0047 has a one-off scheme that will not and is not carried by any other jets.

No, I didn't meant that the venom is new basic paint for the other F-16s. I surely know it is special paint.

Just wondering it is fully painted but can be called the HGV.
So it is based on the HGV, interesting.
