Default True vertical view of F16 line drawing

I have a 70mm EDF F16 that I am rebuilding after given by a pal. He used the tail feathers as material for another model ... I only have the all-flying mounts left.

I've been trying to find a true outline line drawing looking vertically down on a F16 - so I can fashion the correct outline shape tail feathers.

Help ?

Cheers - goes well with another site I found ...

It's not so easy to fimd true outline - plenty of artists line stuff - but real ?

Now I'm home, will get to work to put this bird back in the air.

Nigel,

I would first ask which of the multiple configurations of the F-16 you are wanting a decent artist
rendering of before I direct you to a collection with which you "must" mean out inconsistancies...
between each artist's opinion of what it looks like...

Manufacturers have no use for composite drawings since 1:1 aircraft are assembled at the parts
to sub-assembly level then sub-assemblies brought together to form a group of airframe sections
forming the serviceable whole.

Since the F-16 has been in constant evolution since it first rolled out with designs for international
customers as well as domestic DoD requirements, you must state year~model which will probably
be best defined by the aircraft BuNo of the aircraft you are replicating.

The site earlier posted and one I found have all I need to rebuild the EDF model in my den.
Various photos', renditions match the model - so I'm a happy chappy !

I understand what you say about various versions / years etc. - look at the Harrier and others ... same problem.

Cheers
Nigel
