maybe you want say Block 60, so if you wanna make a F-16 F Block 60 you need of a big mouth air intak with a GE exhaust nozzle.

The UAE jets have a lot of unique lumps and bumps on em. They also have a non-standard radome, etc. There's a lot of internet refs out there, all in all it sounds like a cool project, just not many built so far. Can't wait to see what you do.

The F-16 E/F Bk.60, how the F-16 I Sufa and the Bk.52/ 52+ have the front wheel with increase section, due to the increase in weight you have with addition of the CFT Conformal Fuel Tanks.
Looking forward to see your UAE Viper. : Sė1:

Yes, with the appropriate changes and with the extra that you already have.
But unfortunately the Academy kit has a standard front wheel, so you'll have to increase the section or use a new aftermarket resin wheels specific for the Academy Sufa kit.
Hope that help

I appreciate everyone's inputs. One of these days I'll learn to look around and see what is lurking in my stash. Seems that I also have the IsraCast F-16F Block 60 conversion set which supplies all I need... when will I ever learn

So now in the future you will have to take a closer look at your aftermarket stash before. Sė1:

Lots of problems with the build, exhausts, canopy mostly. Didn't get it finished for the nats but there are lots of contests in the Georgia area so it will get a showing.

Nice work Bruce. I know it's a tough build.

It was nice to meet up with you again at the Nationals.

Update...BEWARE kit instructions for the intake and exhausts if you aren't replacing the kit parts with aftermarket parts! Both the SUFA and Korean D model kit instructions call out parts for the small mouth intakes and exhausts not the large mouth option of parts!
They DO NOT address the large mouth parts in the instructions. Thats how I fouled up my exhausts and am fixing them now. The single seat kit shows exactly what parts are what.

The Sufa and the KF-16 are both PW powered with small mouth inlets so the instructions are correct for the versions the kit is advertised to depict.
