The basic form of the AMT/Italerie/ESCI cockpit. A really nice, detailed model, but for my purposes most of it won't be seen.

To prep for the new cockpit I cut away the kit's seat back with a sharp blade.

I reshaped the tail area, and described the panel lines that were lost in the process. Unfortunately, these will be lost in the glassing and final finishing.

The tail, mechanical openings are filled with either balsa or green florists foam, sanded then glassed over.

The original wing (left) and the revised wing. The exposed foam becomes pretty fragile at this point.

Because this is foam, the leading and trailing edges are thick. Photos of the real F-16 look like you could shave with those wings. Sanding process started.

To make the model more sturdy, I'll cover it with glass cloth and this Minwax Polycrylic. It is water-based, and does not smell. Easy application and cleanup.

Some of the reference books I'll be using.

The cockpit is not currently available, but I was able to find one on eBay. There is an old resin pilot, but it is very hard to find. I will make one using this guy as a starting point.

Towards the tailcone. Some of the this will be filled or cut off. Locations for the horizontal tail fins and nozzle mechanisms.

The embossing is pretty heavy handed, but will help later on. You can see some of the pebbly texture of the foam. I intend to deal with that in a bit.
