Thanks for sharing, it’s a quality effort. I do like the removable engine , and how they set up the gear up/down options. On the Hobby Master F-16s , you cannot display them in flight with centerline stores. Calibre Wings’ solution is as elegant as it is simple.

glad i pre-ordered the USAF version. That said, I can't see buying anywhere nearly as many of these as I have of the Tomcats, as between HM and even older Witty's I'm pretty full-up on Falcons. that said, i'd definitely go for these:

- US Navy aggressors versions of all types. I'd buy every one they make.
- RNLAF "Dirty Diana" (yellow tail, showing the girl - "huntress teat" in or out i'm not bothered either is fine). Just a great livery. Witty examples rightly sell for a bundle these days.

but ultimately I'm much more keen on their "new" moulds: Su-22 and B-57.

They are making a B-57?? Or was that just a typo? I got really excited, but I am pretty sure you meant the Hustler

Totally agree. Just pre-ordered one. This could be THE best die-cast ever produced so far.

i agree with you there, USN and USMC aggressor units use many interesting aircrafts; sadly a few models are totally untochable (damn top gun movie....), way too expensive.
i am going to preorder this f16 too, it's not much more expensive then other models and the removable engine is a nice addition.

I've got a F-16 yet, but this reason may be good to get another one
