Jepe F16 Arrived!!!

As most you guys know I ordered a Jepe 2002 F16 kit about 4 months ago? Well I was in the hospital for a week and a half till yesterday and while I was in it came Yup it finnally showed up on my doorstep . Anyway I have not been able to open up the box and check out evreything but the box does not have a scratch on it. Jepe sends nice boxes So expect lots of pictures and a build along as this the first of his all molded F16's to have his new inlet and solid fan rotor. I will be online tomorrow at the EDF chat to talk so I will see you all later.

Joe,

You will find that the F-16 is even better than the A-4. What did I tell you? Be prepared for an airplane that flys like a guided dart.

Yippeeee!!!! You got it!!! Hope you feel better too! I'm sill not done with my A-10 yet, but it's ready for primer and I'll probably do that this week. Jepe kits are worth every penny you spent.

I know how you feel! I had waited about 6 months for my F-16. But it was worth it. The all molded version should build pretty easy but be sure to use an incidence meter on the wings.

Enjoy and get better soon!

Did you have problems with yours? Mine was straight with the wings lined up on the fuse and the card template holding the trailing edge.

Wing Alignment

No, But I think it's a good practice on this type of model and it's a little imbiguous aligning to the top surface of the fuselage root.
