This one is not a drawing (with Corel Draw) but a modified photograph (with Corel Photopaint): <_<

Thanks. Yes, I found at http://web.mit.edu/btyung/www/nickname.html that the F-16 has for nicknames Electric Jet, Lawn Dart, Lttle Hammer, Viper.

And today I have added to my web site http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/f16ofil.htm 17 pictures including one of mine: <_<

This evening, I have been glad to find in a forgotten book I had the "unknown" unbuilt plane that was looking like a F-16: not a cousin from another company but the General Dynamics E7. Tomorrow I will update my site with the E-2 to E-6 that I have found now on SecretProjects.co.uk  <_<

Don't think that'll buff out...

Do combat aircraft have airbags?

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

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

This photo is very intriguing. If a person could merge the two fuselages together as you move from rear to front it might resemble an F-14 or F-15. Side by side cockpit but what to do with the intakes?

Uh? No I just made a mirror copy, lateral, letting front and rear at their place, I Don't understand what you mean.

I was thinking of how hard would it be to keep the rear half of that photo the same and blend the two cockpits into one and the two noses into one. And then how to do this with two model kits. Maybe I can draw it tomorrow and take a picture of it. I don’t think my words are making sense even to me.

Today I have added a single F-16, an UAV, different from the "true" built one and the "true" project as well: <_<

Then I remembered that the awfully ugly Boeing 707-385C is named Phalcon and that needed a supersonic Fighting Phalcon derivativel: <_<
