Heritage F-16

Evening.

Not sure if anyone's seen this latest US Heritage scheme. An F-16 given the treatment this time and I think it looks great :thumb:

Before I saw the pic I thought "naw, that's never going to look right", but it does, suits the 'frame. All it needs is hi-viz star and bar and white tailcode to complete the image. :pop:

Look a little closer...? Small, but perfectly formed!

I think you'll find, if you look at the rear and situated in the usual F16 position, you'll find one!

As it's based on their F-4s, which had black tailcodes, I think it's about right!
I should probably change my name to EGCC again.
