This is a 1/48 Plastic F-16A/C Fighting Falcon Model Kit from Academy Plastics. It's for ages 10 and up.

One of the key factors in modern combat aircraft is versatility. A plane that can serve in a variety of roles can drastically reduce the cost of operations of any air force by limiting the number of components needed for maintenance. The nimble General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is just that machine. The F-16 has become one of the most successful combat planes in history.

Spotlight Review

"Good model Kit"
Matthew M. (Orofino Id)
I thought this kit was a good candidate to build either a Polish or Israeli F-16 so I'll have to decide but all the parts seem to fit alright but It don't hurt to dry fit before you glue it together . I do like that it comes with a pilot figure other than that I have to say it's a decent F-16 model and not all too hard to build just take your time It should turn out nice once finished .

"Academy 1/48 F-16A/C"
This kit is an old kit with 3 major issues: Basic cockpit to the extreme Major fit issues in the intakes Weak wheel bay design is not very good, so be careful. This kit would be among the lower rankings, but it's still suitable.

"Best Budget 1/48 F-16"
Ace Cobra
It's not the best F-16 kit in the 1/48th scale, but it is perfect for those who are looking for a kit below $30 or $20. It has enough detail for panel lines, an large array of weapons, and the choice to create either an A or C variant. The downside is that there is hardly any detail in the cockpit or wheel wells, very basic weapon design, and a crappy decal sheet. If anyone purchases this kit, I advise they look for a decal sheet in stores or online to go with it.

"Another great build from Academy"

Perfectly detail to make a great build, and realistic result.
