Incredible Orange F-16

Aug 27, 2013 10 Comments by

The biannual Jet World Masters is taking place now in Meringen, Switzerland, and you can bet there are some amazing models in the air! One of them is Gerald Rutten’s F-16, featured in his video below. Gerald notes that he placed second in static judging with this jet at the 2011 event, and the model wasn’t even finished! His video gives a sneak peek inside his workshop as he continues work on his incredible F-16, which features the scheme of the Netherlands Royal Air Force F-16 “Orange” demonstration team.
