I decided to go with a modern era airplane rocker and chose the F16 for this design. It went together pretty quick and had a uniqueness of its own. The long body with short winspan made for better pitch rocking and not so much for side-to-side action. The “cockpit” was cut more for the smaller pilot, but very secure. The people to whom I sold this airplane painted the Montana Air National Guard livery. They, in turn, gave it to their friend a MANG F16 pilot as a gift for his son. I was told he really enjoyed it, but I would make a few changes to the design if I ever built another one.
