F-16A/C Falcon USAF

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

 
"Not the Best"
Chris R. (Jacksonville, Ar)
This kit was OK to build. No detail in the cockpit area. The landing gear is terrible to build (maybe it was the kit I bought) the struts were to short to connect to the wheel well inside the landing gear area. There were panel gaps connecting both halves of the plane. Wings were warped - 1 wing twisted up and the other wing twisted down. The decal sheet were terrible.

"Academy 1/48 F-16A/C Fighting Falcon"
mooniemac2000
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.

 
"Another great build from Academy"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
Perfectly detail to make a great build, and realistic result.

 
"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 .
