Each year, the NATO "Tiger Meet" gives member nations an opportunity to train together in simulated battle over the skies of Europe. 2003 marked the second ever "Tiger Meet of the Americas", hosted by the "Cougars" of the 120th Fighter Squadron, Colorado Air National Guard and taking place at Buckley AFB. Heading up the home team was the Cougars' flagship, F-16C #87-0284, adorned with a striking all over tiger-stripe paint scheme.

Lockheed F-16C Fighting Falcon

Designed by General Dynamics as a lightweight, daytime USAF air-combat fighter, the F-16 was first flown on January 20th, 1974. This single-engine, supersonic aircraft has, over the years, evolved into a multirole aircraft. It has a frameless bubble canopy-giving its pilot superior visibility-and it uses advanced aerodynamics. The F-16 was one of the first designs to use a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire system, which helps it pull 9-g maneuvers and achieve speeds of more than Mach 2. Called "Viper" by its pilots, the F-16 is considered one of the most successful aircraft designs of the Cold War, with 4,400+ aircraft built since 1976.

Gemini's 1:72 scale F-16 is constructed of solid diecast metal. Very few plastic parts are used, yet the finer points—detailed landing gear, engine exhaust, cockpit interior and panel lines and rivet details—are reminiscent of those usually only found on plastic models. Even subtle details have been included, such as radar warning antenna "beer cans," static discharge wicks and angle of attack vanes. This model is highly configurable, with movable stabilators, positionable rudder, a hinged canopy with extending and retracting actuator and a variety of different weapons configurations.
