THUNDER GOD 'VIPER'

Toby Page builds Hasegawa’s seasoned 1/48 F-16C kit, producing a display aircraft with a distinctly Greek flavour.

With staged upgrades, the F-16C Block 52+ arrived in Hellenic Air Force service around 2005 and is notable for the upper fuselage-mounted conformal fuel tanks (CFTs), which increase the aircraft’s fuel capacity... plus engine, radar, avionics and weaponry upgrades.
