This is a F-16D from the Bahrain Ameri Air Force. It
is one of the original twin seaters bought for the BAAF under Peace
Caravan I and later updated to Peace Caravan II standards. Modifications
include AMRAAM, the Lantrin Targeting Pod, and LGB capability.
My BAAF F-16D is made up from a Hasegawa 1/48 F-16B with parts added
from the Hasegawa 1/48 F-16C Block 50 kit.
I added the AMRAAMs, landing gear doors, wheels, LAU launchers, and 'big
mouth intake' from a F-16C that a friend was going to back date to an
early F-16C. The GBU's are from the Hasegawa weapons set and the Lantrin
Targeting pod is from the Hasegawa F-16C 'Night Attack' kit. I ''droped"
the guidance noses on the LGB's and scratch built an intake cover. Other
than that the model is built OOB's (out of boxes).
Decals are "Mike Grant Decals, Bahrain Ameri Air Force". I highly
recomend them and I have a review of them on my web site
The model was finished with Gunze paints applied
with an Aztek airbrush.
