The F-16 Fighting Falcon was designed as a lightweight multi-role fighter for the USAF. The F-16 is highly agile and was the first fighter designed to cope with 9g turns. It can carry a wide variety of ordnance and is equally good at attacking ground or air targets. It has been constantly upgraded to keep it at the forefront of military aviation and is in service with over 25 different Air Forces, making it one of the most common jet fighters.
The F-16 has seen action with the Israeli Air Force as well as the Air Forces of Pakistan and Turkey. Several European Air Forces provided F-16's to patrol over Bosnia and Kosovo and the USAF has used them in both Gulf Wars and Libya.

The F-16C entered production in 1984 and features upgraded radar and avionics to use the AIM-7 Sparrow and AIM-120 AMRAAM missiles. The F-16D is the 2 seat version of the C.
Hobby Boss are a relatively new company to us in Western Europe. They are from China and are connected with Trumpeter. Hobby Boss are known for producing well engineered kits with a good level of detail. This particular kit is a simplified kit ideal for children and people without much modelling experience. It does however, have some very nice detailing with fine engraved panel lines. The only thing lacking is any ordnance, if you want to modelled a 'bombed up' F-16, you will need to get the ordnance from other sources. That said, it is almost certainly a vast improvement on the older Airfix, Matchbox and Revell/Monogram kits.
There are markings for 2 USAF aircraft.
