There may also be a tail like on the Bristol 188 as long as it is a T-tail: <_<


That would make such a fantastic scalorama subject  :thumbsup:
Decals my @r$e!

Thanks a lot!

Now a rocket-engined F-16, like a modern Me-163B Komet: <_<

There was a test project of Staggerwing F-15 in 1977, and I imagine the same with a F-16: <_<

Yesterday I found on the web the Convair (General Dynamics) ADF Config 772: the US basis of the Lavi. This '772 is what-if as unbuilt (scale 1). I put that today on my F-16 what-if site http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/f16ofil.htm, after cleaning the picture to feature the silhouette. <_<

The first F-16 had a parasol wing like its ancestor Catalina (Consolidated became Convair that became General Dynamics): <_<

And a twin-boomer (tailplane hold only by lateral booms) looking like triplex-boom (seen from above or below): <_<

It seems the F-16F program had several versions, this one without apex at all: <_<
