Mastercraft Collection: F-16 Falcon "VA Ang"..
Wingspan: 8 inches
Length: 12 inches
The F-16 Fighting Falcon first appeared when a need for a more lightweight and less expensive multirole fighter aircraft similar to the F-15 arose. The F-16 Falcon, with its monster single engine and advanced electronics and controls, was considered to be one of the best aircraft designs that flew the skies during the Cold War. Outfitted with a frameless bubble canopy, the F-16 Fighting Falcon affords its pilot good visibility for the front, sides, and rear. Often called the “electric jet”, this highly maneuverable aircraft used by the Virginia Air National Guard (VA ANG) was designed to accommodate new technological improvements as they came along. For this reason, many electric jets that are being used today are integrated with the latest in equipment, such as radars and missiles. Until today, it continues to be in demand, and it is being used in at least 15 countries.
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!
