Cobra Company has released, or perhaps re-release is more accurate, the High Flight 1/48 scale F100 engine nozzle for Pratt-powered F-16s. This set will work with all F-16A/B kits in 1/48 as well as Block 25/30/32/42/52 F-16C/D kits.
This is one of the simplest resin sets I can recall every using - simply file the back off of the nozzle casting, paint the nozzle and afterburner chamber, glue the nozzle to the chamber, and replace the corresponding parts in the Hasegawa F-16 kits. These can be adapted to work with virtually any 1/48 Pratt-powered F-16 kit on the market.
My sincere thanks to Cobra Company for this review sample!
