I would like to present pride of Polish Air Force - Lockheed Martin F-16D Block 52+ "Jastrzab".

I used the Hasegawa F-16B kit as the base upgraded to standard F-16D Block 52+ with the Aires resin cockpit, exhaust nozzle typical for  Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-229 engine, wheel bays and the most important thing - CMK resin conversion set. My model is painted with acrylic Gunze C paints in Polish markings. Decals are from Two Bobs http://twobobs.net/. Twinseat plane number 4079 like all Polish F-16's is in service at 31 Tactical Air Base Poznan - Krzesiny.

Underwing weapons include 2xGBU-12 and 2xAGM-65 G2 Maverick on TER's and  AN/AAQ-33 SNIPER/PANTERA ( resin set from shull.24 ) targeting pod under right side of intake. On the end of wings is ready to use in self defence AIM-120 C5 AMRAAM missiles.
I hope you like it !
Best wishes:
Artur
