FirstLook

 

These stabilators have been nicely moulded by cutting edge in both 1/32 scale and 1/48 scale. They are designed as a direct replacement for any 1/32 scale or 1/48 scale kit for those who wish to backdate an F-16C kit.

The stabilators are a direct replacement of the kit parts with no cutting required but the modeller will have to carefully cut off the resin casting blocks. The detail on the resin parts is very subtle but nicely done.

The 1/48 scale stabilators (pictured below) have the static wick mounting bases moulded on and require some stretched sprue to be added for the static wicks while the 1/32 scale stabilators (pictured at the top of the page) have the static wicks with the mounting blocks cast as a separate item.

 



The F-16A Stabilators are smaller and a slightly different shape from those of the F-16C.
Although there is some minor cutting of the resin parts from the casting blocks a novice modeller should be able to install this set.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Meteor Productions for the review sample.
