F-16 XL Research and test

In the eigthies General Dynamics came with a proposal to explore an efficient supersonic wing for cruising and at the same time improved maneuvreability. The SCAMP program saw a radical re-designed F-16 with longer fuselage and a complete different wing. Two F-16 XL aircraft were built and here the single seat s/n 75-0749 is seen. The program lasted a few years and this aircraft was later used for laminar flow testing. It is now on loan from the USAF museum and on display at Edwards AFB.

More than 150 detail pictures!


Many many models of the F-16 have appeared in scale plastic. Too many too list, but in 1/72 the Revell kit is very good, in 1/48 the Hasegawa kit. In 1/32 the Academy kit is good for both a F-16C and two seater F-16D. The Tamiya F-16C kit in 1/32 is very detailed but expensive.
