F-16CJ Fighting Falcon
1/32 scale plastic assembly kit of the F-16CJ Falcon.
The box is about the same size as other Tamiya 1/32 scale jets.
There are 10 plastic bags in the box with 13 sprues inside them.
But there is even more sprue letters listed in instructions - thatís because some of smaller individually named sprues are molded together and make up de-facto larger sprues.
Everything we expect from the modern kit and more!
