Marcus Nicholls Previews Tamiya's forthcoming 1/72 scale F-16CJ, unveiled last week at Nuremberg:

Tamiya 1:72 F-16CJ (Block50) Fighting Falcon – please note, photos show test-shot and kit is subject to change.

 

 

Tamiya has announced the addition of the F-16CJ (Block50) Fighting Falcon to the 1:72 War Bird Series. The aircraft was developed in the mid-1970s by the General Dynamics company to be relatively low- cost, and a lightweight design featuring innovations such as wing/fuselage blending proved such a success that the aircraft has stayed in production even today with various updates and modifications. Some 4,500 have been manufactured.
