"Not what I am used to seeing from Academy kits"
johnsonkahilithe4th
If I could give 0 stars for this kit I would. The instructions and markings for this kit are contrary to the one displayed on the listing and on the box. The coloration is also quite vague due to the poor quality instruction set. The kit is also of much poorer quality then what I am used to seeing with academy kits. I am curious to know if this a re-branded kit. I have built the special edition P51D/Me262 kit as well as the F6 3/5 kit. I also have the B17F but did not start building. The quality on these Academy kits are good. The details such as cockpit, panel lining and undercarriage are poor in the F-16 kit in comparison to the other kits I have mentioned. I will not build this kit and it shall be donated to the activities department of the Veteran's Home I work at. If you must jump at the reasonable price just know this is not a high detail kit and you will need to invest time and money to spruce up the detail. Also if you desire to build a historically accurate piece it will need to be heavily researched because the instructions and images given are inaccurate to say the least.

"Worst Kit ever"
DylMcDaniel
I've built two of these and they are very bad. interior detail is lacking, Decals break very easily, the canopy isn't even close to what a F-16 canopy should look like and the nose cone is terribly misshaped. The only think that good about this kit is the engraved panel lines. Hands down worst kit that I've built.

Good kit at a good price parts fit well you will have a few extra decals when done but thats not a bad thing

 
"Good kit but could be better"
jeremy.s.michels1
This kit needs work while building. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. There was little flash on the parts, but some of the parts fit wasn't so great and required filler. The problems were mainly when joining the fuselage together and then the wings to the fuselage. The cockpit wasn't very detailed. Just plain plastic and then decals were used for the instrument panels. One nice thing about the kit is that it was pretty cheap compared to the complaints I have. I'd recommend this kit to anyone, but a more experienced modeler could really make this a great kit.
