F 16 Scaled scratch Build


Hello everyone I started about a month ago on the quest to make a scaled F16 Falcon . with all the bells and whistles lighting , retracts leading edge functional slats etc .

She will be powered by a JP 105 mm 12 s EDF, Digital servo's and as close to scale as possible

Plans i used was Josh Harel's scaled down 55 percent I also upgraded some of the design more to scale etc

anyways here we go

Thank you i wanted to do something different then just regular hinges and being 105 mm i wanted no issues.
it worked excellent for first time ever trying it it was really easy As well it will look much better once i fill and sand the area 's
Still not sure how i plan on doing leading edge slats
