Up for sale is a brand new 1:72 scale USAF GENERAL DYNAMICS F-16/101 75-0745 (HA3896) by Hobby Master.
The F-16 Fighting Falcon was originally produced by General Dynamics which become Lockheed Martin. The F-16 is relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain so the U.S. and 25 other countries added it to their inventory. The Fighting Falcon is referred to by its pilots as the “Viper” and will remain in USAF service until 2025.
General Electric F-101 turbofan engines were developed for the Rockwell B-1A Lancer that was cancelled in 1977. GE re-engineered the engines for fighter aircraft under the Derivative Fighter Engine (DFE) program. The new F-101X DFE engine was fitted to the first full-scale development (FSD) F-16A (75-0745) which was known as F-16/101. This aircraft made 58 test flights during 75 hours flight time before the project was cancelled in 1981. The F101X DFE engine was not used in F-16s but was used to develop the GE F-110 engine first used in Block 30 aircraft.
This model air-plane is made from die-cast metal and plastic and include extensive detailing. It is similar in quality to Century Wings, Calibre Wings and Forces of Valor.
Includes display stand.
