This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
This YF-16A was the second F-16 built and was used to evaluate the characteristics of the new type. One of the important factors of the evaluation of a combat machine is in the determining of a proper color scheme to help conceal the plane from the eyes of the enemy pilots.
The markings on this model of the YF-16A represent one of the interesting color patterns used to determine the effectiveness of the camouflage.
Eventually a scheme of all gray shades was adopted, but it is interesting to note that the latest French camouflage schemes for their new fighters is almost identical to this scheme.
