    Absolutely beautiful work! It's very realistic and as a matter of fact while viewing the pictures I thought for a second that the real photo was one of the model photos! Congratulations Nord!

    Nice work Nord!

    And, Glyn is right, the F-16 late blocks is very capable. Even the earliest blocks have negative stability making them very difficult adversaries. One tangles with an F-16 only with great respect for its capabilities.

    So, can you maybe teach me how to properly build one of these?

    The last one I made, an SR-71, didn't come out right because of a HUGE gap between the top frame and the bottom frame.

    This looks fantastic Nord,wonderful detail.:) I was watching the real thing today here in Michigan.The Michigan Air national Guard flying out of Selfridge ANG base just east of me had a couple up today.I remember the first day the ANG got to take them up after transitioning from the F-4.They were like kids in a candy shop.;) They put on quite a show.This is still one of my favorite modern aircraft.Great job.

Todays F-16 may look rather similar to the first Falcons to the uninformed, but under the skin it's a different story. New and improved radars, avionics, engines, conformal fuel tanks, range of weapons it can carry and everything else. It has been a story of continual improvement. The designers didn't hibernate after the prototype first took to the skies! I expect production to continue for some years yet.
    Indeed. This thang can still whip 95% of the world's front-line adversary aircraft.
