F-16 Fighting Falcon

I've always wanted to give an F-16 a shot. I know there is one on one of the old add ons, but its probably outdated.

Yeah maybe a tiny bit eh?

The blueprints I am using are right on the money so far, which is shocking. Its gonna be patterned after the 1/6 scale BVM jet and probably gonna go with the orange and black scheme in the pic.

For some reason I can't help but think of the F-16XF Grifalcan from Ace Combat 3.

That could be made into a variant brields.

I went through my fuselage and cleaned up the mesh quite a bit, its at 4,000 triangles but I could reduce it more later if needed. Time for me to start on the wings.

Got the wings and tail pieces put together. I noticed on some F-16's the part that extends out past the rudder is shorter. I decided to go with the shorter version. Triangles are @4769 so I should have enough tris leftover for landing gear and cockpit interior.
