Never saw the F-16/J79, though; if I run across one, I'd definitely want it.

IIRC, the kit has stock F-16's intake, not the one supposedly modified for the reduced air inflow requirement of J79.
Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

Well they were one of the countries envisaged to get such a variant, and it is a Taiwanese company producing the kit...so in-box whiff!

Speaking of F-16/79 whiffs, here is a great one Falcon over on Britmodeller recently did:

I was going to post something about Falcon's conversion, but I couldn't remember who did it. BTW, he's selling copies of the conversion --- it's 1/72 scale though

I was just looking at this photo posted by Ben in another thread:



It would be interesting to see a Canadian F-16 in a similar pale grey and weathered state.

ISTR that at least one operator does so; don't remember who, though.

Cool!

Always liked the XL, seemed like a neat and effective idea.

Looks like they did something similar at the rear of the aircraft, too. ???
