Product Info

KIN-SW48026
1/48 F-16XL Experimental Fighter
Status: Temp Out
E.T.A.: Unknown
Manufactured By: Kinetic

Description:
Made by Skunk Model Workshop

The F-16XL is a derivative of the F-16, with a cranked-arrow delta wing. It was originally conceived as a technology demonstrator. Later entered into the United States' Air Force's Enhanced Tactical Fighter (ETF) competition but lost to the F-15E. Several years after the prototypes were shelved, they were turned over to NASA for additional aeronautical research.

The F-16XL could carry twice the ordnance of the F-16 and deliver it 40% farther. The enlarged wing allowed a total of 27 hardpoints.

In 2007, NASA requested a study into the feasibility and cost of returning F-16XL #1 to flight status and upgrading it with many of the improvements found in the USAF's F-16 Block 40. This was studied while F-16XL #1 was taxi tested at Dryden and given system checks. However, both F-16XL's were retired in 2009 and stored at Edwards AFB.
