I would think that most individuals are somewhat familiar with the prolific F-16 family and if not, please feel free to read one of the numerous articles on this site.
Matchbox offers the option of either the single or two-seat version of this small fighter. This is accomplished by having separate upper fuselage inserts and canopies. A total of 84 silver almost flash free parts make up the main kit with two clear canopies completing the plastic parts. There are few panel lines and but these are rather petit and look good; just too few. The simple cockpits consist of one or two tubs that have the side instrument consoles molded in place. Both cockpit inserts have the pilotís instrument coaming with the two-seater having the additional one at mid-station. Basic seat(s) and well sculptured aircrew complete the cockpit.

There is little one can recommend about this kit. If one wants a quick build 1/72 F-16, then I would recommend the old, but very nice ESCI kit.
