1/48 F-16XL Skunkmodels workshop

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any info if Skunkmodels workshop will do a 1/48 F-16XL two seat version?

I thought Raymond said that if the sales of the single seat version were good, that they would release a two seat model?

Any news on this Raymond?

Yes the XL2 is planned. But not in 2016.

You know last 2 years is really a busy year for me. We had released 10 items since the harrier fa2. And I had not take any holiday since then. After release the f18? Now we back on the Rg31 mk5 and t harrier schedule for year end.

The XL2 is should be allocated in 2017

No need to release it. I am already in the process of converting the XL1 to the XL2.

How about a re-print of the single seater?? They're very hard to find for a reasonable price.

Yes, but I'm not willing to pay stupid money like they are asking for that kit. Yes, that is my choice to make. I don't need it "that" badly!

Unless you are planning to market your conversion, the need for a 2-seater is still there...

XL didn’t need CFTs. Between the fuselage stretch and the bigger wing the XL had something like 80% more internal fuel capacity and L/D increased something like 25% over the F-16A/B.

Glad to see this alive and coming later in the year. 

I'm with Dylan on including a spine and CFTs for optional builds, just as there were Whif decal options in the single seat version.  I think the 2 seater will look good with the spine and CFTs (and some of the other lumps/bumps out there).
