I got myself into a little bit of a jamb .

I have sold 3 Hinds on ebay and the first sell is getting a little ansy and open a case on it so some of my money has been frozen .

The Sdkfz reboot was a little disappointing so I need to push the fuel tanks.

I will spend the whole weekend making molds and considering only 2 molds are needed for this project , these will be made.

So if there is still interest , come on !!!!!!

Here are some photos of F-16s with CFT (Conformal Fuel Tanks) added. These were all American F-16s. From what I read the Air Force won't adopt the tanks. The powers to be say they have enough tanker planes on station at any given time during a conflict, therefore no need for additional tanks. The CFT's have been relegated to the foreign market for know, however the way things are going that may change. The tanks give the F-16 a whole different look.
