This is Dan Savage's Spirit Jets Sweet 16 modeled after the YF-16 with
the Paris Air Show paint scheme. These pictures were taken prior to test
flight. This model features a fiberglass fuselage with balsa sheeted foam
core wings. The lettering were custom generated and the stars and bars
came from the hobby store clearance basket. The YF-16 has full flow ducting
with much of the jet being scratch built and engineered by Dan. .
