Default Subjects: US Navy, Norwegian, Dutch, Greek F-16s

I think these four F-16s are very worth making profitably by either calibre or HM:

1. 2-seater, so probably only HM: The Norwegian falcon that was at RIAT 2019 in WW2 livery:

can't see this not being popular. Downside: decals may not be available yet from a 3rd party for HM to "borrow" from.

2. Classic: Full-teat RNLAF Dirty Diana

Pretty impossible to find from the old decent witty mould. HM RNLAF F-16s have all thoroughly sold out so there is demand. Should be popular if HM does the artwork correctly (plenty of good decals are available) and doesn't make the poor job of it that it has in the past with previous female images (hello Micky T* Chi F-105). As the artwork is on the tail (easier to manufacture) and Witty made a very good go of it ages ago, this should be doable.

3. Some US Navy F-16s

Again, dragon and witty did these, but they are hard to find now. These should be reasonably popular for US Navy type completists, of which there are many.

4. Zeus

There have been several interations of the 'Zeus' livery F16s in Greek service. HM probably should want to do one. Sure, there' s a herpa (or is it a JC) out there, but there's plenty of room still for HM to sell an attractive version.

I join you FS about F-16 from US navy.
Especially F-16N version from aggressor squadron and especially the 2 seaters version :










About Norwegian F-16/spitfire... a must have would be for sure.
Syhart decals has planned to release decals for belgian 75th d day anniversary...



About Hellenic, i have the Herpa Zeus, clearly a beauty, but it's my first Herpa and probably the last... accessories hard to fit and ... heavy price.
But i'm crazy about Helleinc vipers...

The first HM Norwegian F16 was a cracker of a release,...but if I recall it was a tad slow to sell. But I loved it and the RIAT Viper would be added to my collection for sure.

You would think HM would give "Dirty Diana" a run?? It would be a perfect matching pair with the MIGKilling RNLAF Viper that HM has already released.

I picked up both D-Day sets for BAF vipers at the weekend from RIAT, Just trying to get some donors now to make a start.
The Norwegian one I would buy in a heartbeat, best one of the lot in my opinion.
