Product Description

 Hobby Master  F-16C  Block 40 555th Fighter Squadron, 31st Fighter Wing  Aviano AB Italy   1/72 diecast metal and plastic parts. Fully assembled. HA3505

The F-16 Fighting Falcon was produced by General Dynamics who became Lockheed who then merged with Martin Marietta to become Lockheed Martin. The F-16 entered service in January 1979 as a multi-role jet fighter that evolved into an all-weather multi-role aircraft capable of sustaining 9-g turns. The F-16 is relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain so the U.S. and 25 other countries added it to their inventory. The Fighting Falcon is referred to by its pilots as the "Viper"; and will remain in USAF service until 2025.
 
The 555th TFS story began in November 1942 as the 555th Bombardment Squadron, Medium. In November 1945 the squadron was de-activated and re-activated in January 1964. From 1965 until 1973 the 555th flew F-4s in Vietnam and shot down 39 MiGs, earning them the motto "World's Largest Distributor of MiG Parts". The 555th returned to the U.S. in 1974 and in 1994 transitioned to the F-16 when transferred to the Aviano Air Base in Italy. F-16 89-2016 was delivered to the military on July 1990.
