    Tamjet 1/8 F16 MakeOver!!

    Picked this project up. Pretty rough but was advertised as such.

    Kids want to get into a scale jet. Whole different ball of wax so figured this would be a good one for them.

    Calls for an 60-80N turbine. Will target a 100N install to keep this fun!

    Project is going to be a complete strip, rebuild some key structures and then a full repaint.

    Got it all stripped down to just airframe components

    This is the main structure and common to all F16ís. Holds main gear and turbine.

    First project will be to rebuild this whole area. Not strong as is and ugly ugly!!

    This is the scheme I'm going to do... the Alaskan Aggressor scheme.

    Always been my favorite for the F16's.

    Re: Tamjet 1/8 F16 MakeOver!!

    So this is where that plane ended up! lol. I was going to buy it(Fantastic Price no matter the cosmetics or slight repairs) but then remembered I have a half built Byron of the same size to finish up, so I didn't bother to make an offer. Nice to see it in good hands.. I'm sure she'll be a real head turner when finished. I did read that they'll fly around pretty good on a 60 (nice and light) but your right.. for sure slap at 100 in there(to start )

    If you do not have the time to do it right, where do you get the time to do it over?

    Ya ya! Happy News Year’s

    Congrats on the Byron, Trev!

    Made a deal on a Jet Central Rabbit tonight for this one! Should push this around with authority, LOL. Structure will be beefed up accordingly

    Before and after.... strong and clean now!!

    Full rebuild. Saved part of the back former as a reference so that new structure is exact and square.
