The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-seat air-combat fighter airplane, which was originally developed for the US Air Force by General Dynamics. From being a lightweight and daytime fighter, the aircraft has then evolved to assume a highly successful multirole image. More than 4,400 aircraft have already been built as soon as its production has started in 1976. Featuring a frameless bubble canopy and advanced aerodynamics, the Fighting Falcon is one of the first designed aircraft that have a relaxed static ability or a fly-by-wire system that enables it to pull maneuvers of 9g and achieve speeds that are higher than Mach 2. Nicknamed as ‘Viper’ by its pilots, the F-16 is regarded as one of Cold Wars’ most successfully designed aircraft.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
