    Looks actually functional apart from the fact that I don't see how the wheels could fit inside the fuselage. Not a modeling issue but actually a General Dynamics design thing... I took a look at some other pics on reference sites.

    It seems the Kartowny model is a psuedo hybrid of a base F16C-F16D from what I can tell.

    I am amazed at how good the gear look on the Falcon. You are doing one heck of a bang-up job!

    Halinski F-16 C 1:33 Scale

    Beatiful build, FLU!
    I´m amazed at your pace - you´re a fast builder. Expert work - I´m particularly impressed with the LG and the beautiful round tires.

    Yeah i have often wondered if either flu is a Red Bull addict or he has a group of pixies helping. The other day I spent the whole day building a Currel V1 and still didn't even come close to finishing it.

    An "Exceptional Tank"

    FLU,
    Never sweat the small stuff. Keep up the good work. Even for those, where English is the only language, we can still break it.
