Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Lockheed Martin F-16D Fighting Falcon – 029, 335 Mira, Hellenic Air Force (Greece), November 2017

1:72 Scale.  Length: 8.25".  Wingspan: 5.5"



Limited production of approximately 600 models worldwide


Formed on October 10, 1941, the 335th Mira (call sign “Tigers”) is the oldest active squadron in the Hellenic Air Force. The unit is part of the 116 Combat Wing stationed at Araxos Air Base and in 1993 after the first Gulf War, received 62 surplus A-7H Corsairs. The Corsairs were used until 2008 when the 335th Mira began receiving new F-16D Fighting Falcons and became operational in 2010 as a multi-role squadron. In 1972 they became a member of the NATO Tiger Association and are called “Aegean Tigers”.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine fighter aircraft built by General Dynamics, that later became Lockheed Martin. Originally designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multi-role aircraft that can perform various kinds of missions. First flown on January 20, 1974, the F-16 entered operational service with the USAF in January of 1979. It has an internal M61 Vulcan 20mm cannon and multiple locations for mounting missiles, bombs and other mission equipment. Although it is no longer being purchased by the USAF, improved versions of the F-16 are still being produced for export customers. Over 4,500 F-16s have been built for the U.S. Air Force and the air forces of twenty-five other nations.
