Resin air intake for Tamiya's F-16C 1:48

Recommended Posts

I am looking for any resin intake for F-16C Viper.

I know there are very good intakes for F/A-18 or F-4 available (XMM or Rhino), but what about F-16?

Do you know anything about such aftermarket?

I know that Phase Hanger is supposedly working on sets for both Hasegawa and Tamiya F-16s. No ETA announced as of yet.

Trying to get a build done for Nationals. After that I’ll get back to work on the intakes masters. 🙂

As I can see you have just issued intake for F-2A.

Nice, but I am affraid those outward intake cover looks a little bit more coarse then Hasegawa's one. Or maybe it is just picture?

Have you got maybe better picture of those parts?

I’m sorry, I don’t understand your question regarding the F-2 intakes.

I asked about external part of intake - the resin copy of kit's part (I think this is copy).

The photo is a resin copy of the master pattern. I still don’t understand the “outward intake cover” you mention as I didn’t make any intake covers (I don’t use intake covers in any of my builds BTW 😎).

Your set contains two main parts: inside intake part and outside part.

I asked about this second one which I believe is just a copy of Hasegawa's kit part.

I think it looks worse then Hasegawa's part, more coarse, so it could be nice to see it on better picture.

Oh I see. Those photos were of the test casts, the main intake and resin parts are smooth. Better photos will be shared (I didn’t take the latest photos LOL).

Is it possible to use your inside resin part together with Hasegawa's outside part?

You can, but you must modify both parts.

If you come out with intakes for the Tamiya Viper, you will probably be able to put your kids through college due to all the people that have them in their stash.
