Default Indiana ANG Block 30 F-16C OIF / OEF combat deployments?

Howdy, y'all!

1/48 Tamiya
(With regard to OIF & OEF)
I know INANG doesn't fly Vipers now. I don't usually build USAF jets, however, I've always been an admirer of the Viper. Who has pics/intel on any big or small mouth GE powered block 30 163rd and/or 113th FS? Any dates with whichever blocks or S/N would be nice, as well. I'm having trouble compiling the intel think I need to accurately build one of these 'lil Tamiya Vipers I've heard so much awesomeness about lately. I have some old Fox One & Superscale decals that I can fiddle with if I need to get the correct markings for one or two birds. I'm thinking about ordering a couple SHG sheets that are prolly a lot better I reckon. I think there a few dudes on here that have intimate knowledge of the INANG Vipers that might be able to assist. Thanks!

Semper Fi,
Masterguns

There's a few of us who have a lot of IN goods. Mike Reed is a Hoosier and has built quite a few INANG Vipers, he's on here off and on still. I think most of his old builds were on Photobucket so they are gone for the most part. Dave Cook posts once in a while and he was a DCC at Terre Haute forever. If you have specific questions just shout or send me a PM and I'll try to help out. There are a lot of books too as well as old articles. We'll get ya what you need

Default OWS?

Hey, Dave. Thanks much. Are those some from OWS? I know they technically flew the last mission. Anyway, thanks for the time to post the awesome pics & some pretty neat loadouts. Your a great source of info on the bird so I have you on 911 when I need INANG post-haste. Take easy dude brah!

Post script:
I’m sorry such a doggone freakn’ outstanding guard unit changed missions Anan an intelligence wing. Nothing like those boys in the S-2 getting together & assigning us some good missions to find this a bad guy, shoot ‘em in the face & put him down down for a nice long nice dirt nap.

About 6 of the Block 25's had the HF on the tails before we officially gained the TH tail code, the HF jets were Hahn jets,our Block 25's came from Shaw AFB and Hahn AB.

If that's 85-1567, I was an ACC on that jet in 89 when it was a Misawa jet with the 14th AMU. She still flying? We have some of her sister jets; 85 1560, 1547, and 1551 still flying here at Edwards.

Your right,I keep forgetting about 567,the unit received it after I retired. 567 was a replacement for my aircraft which was lost in a mid-air on May 17,2004,470 was the replacement for 555.

567'S nickname was "Christine"
