So I’m looking into doing one of their block 30 jets from around 92 into 93. Specifically either 85-1455 or 85-1458. I’m using the 1/72 Tamiya F-16 and I know most of the tweets that I need to do like add the lights to the main gear and delete them off of the nose gear, make a small mouth intake (hardest part) and swap out the later bulged MLG doors for the earlier one’s. but one thing I cant really find out is if those jet were fitted with the beer can RWR on the wing leading edge. I can’t remember if the block 30 had those standard from the factory or if they were a retro fit later on. Does any body know if they had them around this point?
One more thing too, did the 86 TFW use the shallow or deep ALQ-131?
Also so here’s a full list of tweaks that I have made is there anything else I should add?
-Fill two chaff and flare buckets on port side (not the ones right across from each other)
-Add lights to the main gear and delete them off NLG door
-Make a small mouth intake
-Use older style block 30 wheels
-Battery is blue
-Add actuator to NLG door
-Tail top beacon needs to be square?
-Early style main gear doors and actuators
-Smaller center line pylon off a Revell kit.
