The cockpit is glued shut with pilot/crew figures inside. The wing and fuselage attachments such as missiles and fuel tanks are already glued in place. The model already comes assembled and painted. There is nothing to do, what you see in the photos is what the model will look like when you take it out of the box.

This is not a toy, it's a display model. Recommended for 14 and older.

The F-16I is a two-seat variant of the Block 52 developed for the Israeli Defense Force – Air Force (IDF/AF). Israel issued a requirement in September 1997 and selected the F-16 in preference to the F-15I in July 1999. An initial "Peace Marble V" contract was signed on 14 January 2000 with a follow-on contract signed on 19 December 2001, for a total procurement of 102 aircraft. The F-16I, which is called Sufa (Storm) by the IDF/AF, first flew on 23 December 2003, and deliveries to the IDF/AF began on 19 February 2004. The F-16I has an estimated unit cost of approximately US$70 million (2006).
