I hope you'll make the European AM/BM MLU versions (Belgium/Portugal/Netherlands/Norway/Denmark/Romania).
And for the Norway with the anti ship Penguin Missile ;-)
Romainia is already available for P3D.

Couldn't ID this one at first, needed a bit of Twitter help but it's a USAF Bk 30 from the 93rd FS. It has the bird slicers Kevin! So some older ones seem to have them now.

Yeah they are all slowly getting brought up to CCIP standards, so outwardly its basically a Block 50 as far as we are concerned.
For our modelling purposes CCIP seems to be Block 50/52.

Anywho....
For those times when you asked nicely, and that pesky ship still won't go away.
Popeye Have Lite - 60cm shorter and lighter than the standard Popeye (for F-16 carriage).

See now we're getting into the specialized weapons..... starting to get fun again! :smt003

Adding the loadouts to the models is always my favorite part.

Nothing else to do this year, Liverpool is shit this season.....

Yes they are!

The 4 Sufa Squadron tails...
Couldn't use the 32 bit textures, too many changes since the FS9 version.

Thanks Mike...
Had to redo ONE POLY on the stbd side spine also.
Little glitch that ony shows up in P3D, and ONLY noticeable if the aircraft isnt a shade of grey.
So there was a grey single pixel line between the tail part of the spine and the start of the next part of the spine (remember it starts as 3 seperate parts).
By going to the last poly of the stbd side tail part of the spine and reducing the x size by one, it fixed it.
Just as well I can reuse it for the Barak D's!

Good lord that's enough to drive you to drinking.....

Meanwhile I probably went a little overboard for an AI weapon but what the hell, it's 2021 the CPU's can handle the extra polygons these days. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

Still needs a little work on the tail area but should have it done in the next few days.

Nice.
Slightly different subject -

Sufa - Seems to use Amarillo (close enough) for serial numbers.
Barak - ????????????????????????? Almost a wide RAF font, no idea.

No idea on that, might have to search through the plastic modelers forums for that info or F16.net

That's a large piece of kit to be toting around. Reminds me of RAF Typhoons with Storm Shadows.

Thought about trying to do the XL version. Would be a lot of work though.

Me too, same conclusion.
It was stretched slightly in two places....
Just forward and rear of where the wings join the fuselage.
The rear section was also angled up to prevent tail strikes.

So leaving the whole center section as is means not having to redo the main gear animation!

Wow !! The F-16 CCV / AFTI.


With the same drag chute and spin but two seater you can also make F-16 VISTA (and with his new colors but without drag chute)

AFTI will come in 5 options...

Main differences are spin chute fitted, multi sensor nose probe, canards, and various lumps and bumps.
1 model with the changes controlled by XML based on the date in the aircraft title.

1st pic a is closer look at the 2000 version, with the others in the background.

2nd pic front to rear (rough years) -
1989
