Early F-16A horizontal tails

Recommended Posts

I seem to remember seeing replacement early F-16A horizontal tails for sale, but I'm not having any luck finding them.  I need them in 1/72nd scale.  Do they exist?

Came as extras in most Revell kits if somebody has spares. Failing that Quickboost has them in resin, 72196.

 

Barring both of the above, cut off the aft portion and resand to profile. 

 

Cheers,

Hoops

This is partially true for the retooled and nearly definitive F-16A/B by Revell/Monogram :

 

50% chances of finding them in box # 04612 (OOP) I did not manage to ever buy this boxing but my LHS many moons ago and when it was released had a opened box sample as people was afraid of getting previous overpriced crap offered by Monomatchbox

100% chances of finding them in box # 04633 (OOP) but you will not get the standard A tail fairings as those are included in any given Revell F-16C boxing but this one

100% chances of finding them in box # 04363 (OOP)

 

All the other F-16A/C Revell boxes B included, do come with late stabs, extra parts for the basic A tail and chances of having both A and C type pylons or just with C type pylons

 

Revell #04317 & #04318 only have a newer sprue for a drop tank, Aim-9s, late stabs and newer A tail with parachute/ECM housing that are not in anyway related to the parts contained on # 04612 boxing and upwards, rest of the kit is good enough for beginners and maybe as a starting point to scratch built the intake trunking on more serious kits

F-16A/B kits that TTBOMK have parts for the small horizontal stabs include early Revell, Monogram,  Airfix, Heller, MPC,  and some of the early Esci,  Italeri and Testors kits. 

 

All of the Hasegawa, Fujimi and later Revell Germany kits have the larger Block 15 stabs.
