Default Classics Never Get Old: Phase3 F-16

Well gang, I knew it was just a matter of time before I built another one of these. I blame AnglerHi for the addiction! When I saw his for the first time I knew I would have one.

Long story short: I bought one of the RR kits on sale and for several years she was my favorite plane. I'm a dummy and crashed it, but I loved it so much I had to have another. The receiver ready kits are discontinued (I think) so when the body-only kits went on sale for $39 shipped I just couldn't resist.

Anywho; I am going for the Edwards safety scheme.
E-flite Delta V 480 with the stock fan.
60 amp ESC
3 cell 1800 ~ 2200 mAh battery.

There have been many build threads on this model so I won't type what has already been published. But I did take pictures.

Here is what I have completed so far.

Default Maiden Flight Ready.

She is finished. I found some roughly 1/15 scale decals and printed them on regular paper. They are just cut out and glued on.

If anyone knows of a good way to seal these paper markings on I'm open for suggestions.

I reckon she won't win any contests but I am pleased with the final product.

No pictures of the bottom. It's not scale at all. I'm pretty much using the stock Phase3 decals because they provide an excellent visual contrast to the top.

This little bird is tiny and PDQ. Contrast is good.

Here are the rest of the pictures.
