DL:

That F-16 has some very interesting lines. The design looks solid to me. Consider it a prototype and finish it. Then build a second one with the changes you mentioned. I have done a few "prototypes" myself. My current rendition of the F-16 is to gain some experience on this particular model then improve on the following Fleet clones. I may end up replacing this one later. I think you are on the right track on improving the looks of the original.

I see many "jet fighter" inspired models there: an F-4, F-18, F-104, the F-16, F-15, an F-8 (I think) and others. Cool collection back then. Do any others have survived to today? The upscale undecaled Pegasus caught my eye as I just finished a 1:1 Estes Pegasus (#0805) with some custom decals... no motor mount as it is a shelf queen for now.

Your rendition of the F-18 looks cool as well as the F-104. I have slowed down a little with my build. still experimenting with 3D printed doodads (missiles, fuel pods, bombs...)

The picture of the Mach-10s on a table was taken by a friend of mine. My Mach-10 is the unpainted one. It was not ready to paint when we decided to go up to northern Maryland for a day of flying rockets at our favorite, recently plowed and poohed, hay field... I miss those days.

RR,

The Tomcat Swing-Wing Glider no longer exist due to one wing not swinging into glide position and it cork screwed into the ground and exploded, smashing the N/C and the windshield.

The A-10 glider got crushed by somebody's unwatched child while I was launching a rocket.

I still have all the rest are still in my fleet.

I'm not sure which you think is an F-8 unless your confused about my A-7 Corsair II.
It's grey and white with a larger version above it on the top of the couch.

The F-18 is my design and the F-104 is a downsized Fatcat rocket.
Both are documented on this forum.

If your interested in cloning any of them, I'll help any way I can.

Daniel
