General Dynamics F 16A Mlu Tigermeet 09 by Teratophoneus General Dynamics F 16A Mlu Tigermeet 09 by Teratophoneus
Heres my second tigermeet f 16, this time an mlu of the belgium air force
Backround: I dont know that much about modern jets than about wwii aircraft but what I know is this:
Despite its modern and sleek appearence, the f 16 is actually a quite old aircraft and is now in service and produced since 1976. The Plane was developed by General Dynamics and is buiolt by GD and Lcokheed Martin. The F 16 replaced the F 104 Starfighter as an interceptor. The F 16 was intentionally planned as an intercepto but is used as a multirole g´fighter aircraft nowadays. Its top speed is 2160km/. The Fighting Falcon is also called viper. The prototype stood in competition with the YF17 which was then developed into the F18 Hornet. The F 16 is fast and offers good maneuvrability, it has a powerful engine and has a bubble canopy which offers excellent visibility. F 16 has seen action in many combats ans is one of the best and most often used fighter aircraft of the world. Several variants have been built . Its most distinctive features are the big canopy, its single engine and the huge air intake. F16s can carry a wide array of payload. F 16s are used in many states. Weapons include the succesful aim 9 sidewinder rocket, ASRAAM Rockets , HARM missiles, AGB Bombs, and many other. RAnge without external fuel tanks is 550 km.

The model: A revell model in 1/72.
Deatil: Nice details, the cockpit looks nice and the engine too. But I think it could have done a bit better
****
Fitting: Good,mostly, only the fuselage had a small gap but by using instant glue I could fuse it together easily.
****
Functions: None,but its a jet and those model kits dont come with any fuctions, so I will leave that point out
Decals: Awesome, the tigermeet looks awesome, I love it
*****
Extrapoints: A nice model kit, I like it, the rockets and missiles looks awesome on it and the plane itself looks awesome
****
Fazit: I can recommend it, a nice kit
****

Nice builds! I'm currently finishing an Italeri 1/72 SR-71A Blackbird "17975". It's been mostly enjoyable except for poor fit of the fuselage. Still with the decals finally going on it is starting to look awesome. I have only ever seen this aircraft once at the IAT many years ago. My biggest surprise is how big it is! Keep up your good work; I must get around to photographing my growing collection. I only started again this hobby a couple of years ago and am thoroughly enjoying it! Next build is possibly an Eduard 1/72 Il-2m3 Sturmovik.
