Accessories don't come much easier than Cutting Edge's replacement exhaust nozzle for Hasegawa's F-16 kits. Simply cut the nozzle off the block, attach to the kit and voila! An accurate and well detailed exhaust nozzle.

The casting block looks quite imposing but is actually very simple to remove with careful application of a razor saw. Take your time with the cut though - you won't get a second chance.

Although this pack is labelled fit the F-16, the same style of nozzle with turkey feathers is also used on the F-15 Eagle and Strike Eagle. Cutting Edge market a pair of these identical resin nozzles for the F-15 at USD$15.99 (set number CEC48331). If you are planning to build more than one Fighting Falcon, you might want to consider buying the F-15 set instead and saving yourself a few dollars.

Recommended.
