New F-16 build-This should be on H-J's F-16 Thread

Hi Hans,

Just to show my progess so far-Excuse photo quality but I used my phone to take the pics. Please note I have used 6mm depron for the inlet/main part of botton of fuselage for strength but to keep wieght down and to compensate I have removed small sections of the fuselage 'spine', centre of formers etc, also I will try and use 2mm depron for most of the upper fuse skin. Due to the strength of the 6mm depron (I formed the shape using heat gun) no formers were necessary and it has made the model very rigid.

Next challenge is the cannopy!! It looks like you incorporated a little anhedral on the rear elevators on your first T'Bird F-16. Is that correct or didn't you bother? Would putting anhedral (I hope that is correct term for the downward angle of elevators?) affect handling adversly or at all, or is it not worth the effort anyway? Thanks for giving me the inspiration to attempt this design.

Cool! Ive used 6mm Depron on the botton of the fuselage from F-16C, No. 3
for the minifan480 and mega 16/15/2. The use of a heat gun works very good.
Im forming the 3mm depron under hot water (~60C/~140F).
