This is a limited edition model with a total of 500 pieces. A card similar to a credit card is included which displays the particular number (of the pieces produced) of the model.
Some assembly is required to place the landing gear and/or wheel well covers in place, as well as the weapons on the wings and fuselage. This is quite simple, but one needs to be very careful and patient.
The cockpit canopy can open and close to allow for placement of the pilot figurine, however, one also needs to be very careful when moving the canopy as it is very fragile and the movement is barely enough to insert the pilot in place.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The box measures 10 inches by 10 inches by 4 inches.
The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,500 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta.
