The result looks good, but the Corsair wings appear a little too large for my personal taste (esp. in the view from above)?  :o

Found this morning. I believe it’s a photo from the secret fledgling hatch site deep in the Arizona Desert.



I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

That'll be the F-1.6 I think.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Keeping up with all the new stuff has been kicking me arse.  ;D    Lots of creativity being unleashed. I hate to have to spin a positive light on the current negative situation..... but......      ::::gestures broadly to all the new what if builds appearing in greater numbers::::::

Yes, it is a nice Photoshop "improvement".
I found it a few days ago on another part of Facebook and immediately added it to my F-16 what-if encyclopedia at http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/f16ofil.htm

I thought that shortened F-16 looked familiar. If I've seen it before, it was probably years ago.

Years ago, I made a couple of F-16XS drawings: https://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php?topic=34783.msg552226#msg552226

Yes, the 3 of them are featured on my site http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/f16ofil.htm (in chapter 3C) with your name. Google found them during my search. Congratulations to you! :thumbsup:

Wonderfull.  I have the urge to build one of these.

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