Chilean Air Force F-16
This is F-16 represents the 2-seater version that was sold to Chile as part of the Peace Puma program. I built it from the Academy F-16I Sufa kit. It’s a really nice kit that goes together well and fairly easily. It has some things going for it over the over-engineered Tamiya kit. I used many photographic references for it and I think it turned out pretty well. I used Eduard photo-etched seat belts and an Aires Exhaust nozzle. The landing parachute was made using Sculpy and some spare brass. I added some hydraulic lines and a few other details, but that’s about it. I built it because I really like the paint scheme. It, too was in FSM.
By the way, that’s the Tamiya engine.
