Going twin, twinjet and twinfin. Two F-414 should be sufficient and would provide better endurance ???



Know that's a lot of weight and room added to the design, just to make room for a toilet and microwave (aka Sukhoi Platypus)  ;D

Well, before one of my writing partners and I had a falling-out, since she wrote a character who's an F-16 pilot I had conceptualized an F-16XL/IDF Sufa/JASDF F-2 "mixmaster," and while I've abandoned any further thought on the idea for obvious reasons I just thought I'd throw it out if anybody else wanted to play with it.

What would look really slick on that would be a butterfly type tail arrangement like the YF-23 had:

Thursday's confession:  I find the F-16 all but impossible to Whiff outside a revised paint scheme.   I have no idea why, but that's where it is.   ;D

Great idea! Here you go!  :)



I was too lazy to do the YF-23-style exhaust, though.  :P

That's plenty cool with or without YF-23 exhaust. I didn't actually envision it with any changes to the engine at all.

Another idea that hit me is to use an F-16 kit as the basis for an aircraft derived from the Rockwell HiMAT:

Another modification for V-tail Falcon: add  F-22 vector nozzle and bigger wings: maybe MiG-29 shape?

Muroc Models does one in 1/72

I have actually been after the 1/48 Stratosphere kit for a while but they are out of production.

That's a Muroc Models kit Greg, and they're very hard to get in contact with.
