I don't really know why, but I was half expecting to see the wings from the F-16XL ... d'oh!   :unsure:  Oh, well - maybe someone will do one.  Not me - I don't have any F-16s in the SSR*, far less the XL version.

Why limit yourself to wings - these are MiG 29 vertical tails.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

How about a stealthy F-104?

With that howling J-79 and the mega-smoky exhaust it's a difficult concept to grasp.  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Easy.  Just mount a "Cloaking Device" on one of the hardpoints and Robert is your Mother's brother.

Extra cold-air intakes around the rear to 'hide' the hot exhast in a tunnel of cold air ...  You could always just use a marker to draw on a series of NACA inlets ...  ;)
