USAF F-16D "whiffer"

Trumpeter F-16B/D kit and decals.

Thanks to all the 1/144 accessory companies out there, because the Trumpeter kit does not come with any ordnance.

Maybe there should be an "ordinance" requiring model companies to include "ordnance" in their kits appropriate to the subject.
But then we might not have all these great accessory companies.

Rise144 "outstanding" accessories:
1. Dorsal spine (Poland version)
2. CFTs
3. BRU-57 dual bomb racks
4. GBU-39 SDBs

Here's a link to a picture I used to paint the SDBs

5. GBU-38s

Pit-road GBU-12s

AIM-9M SW 3D Workshop

AIM-120C Revell F-15E kit

LANTIRN pods Fox One IAF F-16I Sufa Weapon Set

ALQ-131 ECM pod-"spares" box (Rise144, Heroes Models and SW 3D Workshop makes them.)

Mission: Airborne alert CAS

I had previously built a F-16D "Wild Weasel" whiffer using the Fox One F-16D kit and wanted to do something different.

Brilliantly done. It’s certainly different looking but you have to look a moment to work out what it is. Very smart.

What a loadout :shock:
Beautifully done. Nice to see what is possible with this type of F-16. One of my favorite planes and now it is high on my 1/144 wish list.
Cheers!!!

That loadout is looking awsome!
Lots of work behind, I'm sure!

This is What Iffery at its best. Could an F-16D carry a payload as heavy as this? Please send all answers to the USAF on a self-addressed envelope ... :lol:
OTB ...
GB20 - Lavochkin La-7 (Mark I)
GB25 - Vickers Windsor (Anigrand), Curtiss P-40M Kittyhawk III (AFV Club)
SoS - Douglas C-47B Dakota (Minicraft) and several others :-(
