Cutting Edge F-16C Parapack tail






Any 1/32 F-16C


Scott Van Aken

Moving on to the bigger scales, here is the F-16C Parapack tail conversion set. This is designed for any 1/32 F-16C kit, which at this writing means the very nice ones from Academy and Tamiya. It is a simple conversion that just requires replacing the kit tail with this one from Cutting Edge.

Parts include a fin base, fin and rudder as separate pieces. A clear anti-collision light is given as well. On a separate sprue are the fin tip, pitot tip (broken on mine despite a cardboard cover), UHF antenna and two bits for the parapack; a parachute and an electronics package.

A neat and easy conversion for those seeking something a bit different.
