Have you tried blending F-16 with Rockwell HiMAT?
The F-16 HiMAT looks good, whatever classification.
I forgot that our friend CamNut built one F-16 HiMAT-like 3 years ago: https://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php?topic=44704.0  :wub:

The Vickers 559 project does not look like a F-16 completely but may inspire missing links: <_<

The mix F-16/Alouette 2 was not a helicopter but featured a panoramic canopy (for subsonic flight only): <_<

Thanks! And maybe, ericr, you are the inspiration of this drawing above, putting an helicopter cockpit/nose on your airplane models, once or twice I don't remember ;D

Now, "more seriously", here are two VTOL Falcons, inspired by the Yak-141 Freestyle: <_<

Yes, I am happy these two are (supersonic) twin-boomers! ;)

Fairchild did design several transports for the Saturn rocket, a reduced scale one could have been loaded on a special F-16:  <_<

I have made the drawing of a short F-16 without tailplanes then I saw that perttime did almost the same a long time ago. Anyway they are a little different, enriching the family:  <_<
