Modelkeenfan Posted August 17, 2019 Share Posted August 17, 2019 Hi all I know I'm posting a bit on F16s. However it's the fast jet I know least about due to the many versions and small details which differ on version to version. I'm planning to convert a 1/32 Tamiya F16CJ to a F16N. So my plan is as follows Purchase the 1/32 GT resin small mouth intake for it Purchase the 1/32 avionix F16 block 30/32 cockpit wet Ommit the two small parts on the tail which create a small air intake Eliminate the gun and gun port on the F16 Put the landing lights on the main gear struts Buy the 1/32 SAC metal landing gear and put the small tyres from my Thunderbirds kit on it (does anyone know if the 1/32 SAC metal landing gear made for the Academy kit will fit the Tamiya kit? And is this SAC set the lightweight landing gear?) On the main landing gear wheel bay doors, I will sand off the humps on both doors so they are the flat doors used with the light weight landing gear. Put the relevent antennas on in the correct places and place an ACMI pod on the right wing tip Now can anyone tell me anything I've missed or anything I need to do to make the conversion? As I understand it, the airframe of the F16C block 30 is the same as the F16N airframe IE - tail and tail base is the same on both versions Any help with answering my questions on the 1/32 SAC landing gear would be appreciated or anything I've missed in making the conversion Thanks all for reading and if anyone can help in anyway.
