Scramble Messageboard ? Information

Here's a couple very interesting Oklahoma ANG F-16s that I would definitely love to see. They are currently in Europe, possibly for the USAF deployment to Poland.



This seems to be painted in the F-35 "stealth paint"



Must be the boss bird.

I would love to collect all the ANG F-16 birds if Hm would commit to such. Waiting for the stingers, popping together a Code 3 Stinger in the next week when triple nickle arrives here.



180th Fighter Wing honors Ashleigh Hunt as Pilot for a Day

Honorary 2nd Lt. Ashleigh Hunt and U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Kathryn L. Dorhmann, a crew chief assigned to the 180th Fighter Wing, launch an F-16 Fighting Falcon May 26, 2016 during Pilot for a Day, a program supporting children and young adults who live with chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The Pilot for a Day program allows the 180FW to give back to the local community, whose enduring support for the Airmen makes the 180FW mission possible. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Staff Sgt. Shane Hughes)

Nothing this year so far, so I decided to make my own:



Probably going to do more of this as there are a few liveries I have really wanted by may not ever get done by HM.

The F-16 XL was an awesome aircraft, the specs were incredible. The only reason it was not produced was politics, it's performance envelopes were incredible.
Unfortunately, HM would need to make a new mould, so not happening. I would buy several otherwise.

Absolutely. And a NASA version too! But yeah, I was just being cheeky. I don't expect to see an F-16XL model. Nor would I expect to see a SFW/F-16.

I should not say only reason politics but it was hugely influential with MD and Boeing battling it out. But a bit of scuttlebutt in the industry about Boeing putting the pressure for the ETF contract at the time. The XL was a fantastic aircraft and the original F-16 had shaken procurers in the USAF with the "deal of the century". 27 hard points on it. It would have been interesting if both this and the mudhen had been produced side by side.

Well, still no luck for a stinger F-16 after all this time although HM is popping out ANG F-16's now. I will be convert a Minnesota model for the update 180th block 50 birds they are now flying.

Fall is here in Ohio:

I haven't checked to see if this one has already been mentioned (and can't believe it hasn't TBH), but seeing as it's such a classic:

The newest member to the Falcon family would be a great choice, as it is a completely different camo scheme. Romania will sadly say goodbye to their MiG-21s, but these are pretty cool:



This one is a hybrid though. Romanian camo but still wearing the Portuguese AF serial in the tail.

And still lacking the Romanian AF insignia. That ended up painted on the tail, and it's rather bright...

The Romanian camo is nice, I've seen pics in magazines as well as the one posted above and think it's very attractive in and of itself, as well as being something a bit different and interesting in that regard too.

Ever once asked William about 2 seaters euro 1.
They will plan & consider for longer term.
Besides, the 1 seater euro 1 is not selling that well.
I can still find it in my local stall.

F-16's from former 147FW from Houston, TX. Texan logo or not. I really like the Texas Flag, and how it's shaped like a lighting bolt. I'd love an opportunity for one in color and in low vis colors.

The Stingers, Texans, Wolfpack and Aggressors are all great picks.
Calibre is looking to make a new F-16 model in 1:72, so if HM is unable to make these, Calibre can start producing what we are looking for.

Witty did do the AK black/grey/white camo, but I would prefer an HM made one. Less overspray...

Since I have lived in Houston for the last 43 years, I sure would like to find an F-16 147th FIG.

I would love to see a VT ANG, Green Mountain Boys from HM. If you ever fly into Burlington, you get to see them across the runway. I believe they were also the first ones airborne on 9/11. Plus, they're getting the F-35 in another year or two...so, add that to the wish list too, HM!
