f 16 het 90mm israeli camo scheme need some upgrades


hey guys
only dead posts for this one here?so i had no choice to create a new one


i was wondering if anybody found some scale struts for this one?
i 've flew mine all last year for a while and i 've decided to get it upgraded
i m done with the paint now as it is winter , no flight session for us at the moment
so i decided to give it a chance with some retract , i was launching it with a bunjee roller for the moment witch was 100% reliable but now we have a brand new tarmac field....
i've heard it is a pain in the a... to get a reliable landing gear , but let's try ...

also want to find a scale cockpit and pilots for it ,
here's some pics of the camo scheme ,this is the 101st squadron "brakeet" israeli air force

I found an oversized set at Hobbyking that might work.
It would take some mods, especially for the nose, but after a quick number crunch without actually having the model in front of me, it looked do-able.
Let me see if I can find that link...

those are pretty heavy and a bit big to fit in the small area this f 16 has
i have them already, with brake stuff
tried to find a way to make them fit but ... hard to do
the biggest problem is the front as the rear they need to rotate 90degrees on themselves to fit flat enough inside undercarriage area
if u have any pictures , it 'll maybe help me to see how u do yours..
thanks!

i will ask tamjet if he has something more scale

I just ordered the same retracts for the same purpose. I would really appreciate any info you care to post about your installation. I suspect the nosegear is going to be a challenge for us!

Thanks!

This is what I would do,
I would buy the smaller and expands the hole to 5 mm
And replaces the wheels
And it sits perfectly

those are pretty small for such an heavy plane
those are done for rc lander size witch is much smaller than het f 16
and the main problem will be the nose wheels retract , it has to be turned to 90degree when it get up
otherwise the nose wheels will stay outside the front undecarriage

i was thinking to find the same retract system as yellow aircraft does for their f 16
( i have a complete one ) , a bit smaller will be perfect for the het
but where to find or do it ever exist,?
