Default 1/32 Tamiya F-16C Blk 30 181st. FW.

Hi guys, Started this project during the Viper Group build. Wasn't able to complete before the deadline due to a move to North Carolina.
Built from the Blk 50 C/J kit.
Added goodies included,
NSI smallmouth intake from the T-Bird kit, A partially closed resin GE nozzle donated to me from Pete Fleischmann, Resin PIDS pylon donated to me from Bryan "DurangoKid", CrossDelta stiffener plates, TER's, GBU-12's and the LITENING pod were leftover from an Academy F-16I Sufa kit. Decals from Afterburner and FoxOne.
Painted with Mr. Color paints
My photography skills are pretty lousy but, these are about the best photos I could cobble together.

WoW! Photoshop away the stand & you'd be hard press to tell the difference from the real thing!

Here's another one - this one was directly requested by Jim. Good call, buddy... this made for a great action angle!
