Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Lockheed Martin F-16BM Fighting Falcon – 691/FN-K, Royal Norwegian Air Force, Bodo, Norway, 2019

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



Limited production of approximately 500 models worldwide


Royal Norwegian Air Force (Luftforsvaret) F-16 Fighting Falcon 691/FN-K was received in early 1983 by the 331st skvadron (331 skv) “Lion” located at Bodo. In 2019 it received a special paint scheme wearing the colors the 331 Squadron Spitfires used during the Normandy invasion. The registration represents Spitfire PL258 FN-K of the 331st (Norwegian) Squadron assigned to the RAF during WWII. PL258 ended its operational life when it belly-landed in December 1944 in the Netherlands. 691/FN-K also marks the 75th Anniversary of the Royal Norwegian Air Force.

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.
