The main gear bay on both kits got extra detail using rod, stretched sprue and some of the Eduard etched metal parts. Also, the battery was added made from card.

F-16A MLU

also note the opened up rear engine bay hatch.


Radar
The radar nose was choosen to be set open on the F-16A MLU. Parts from the Tamiya F-16 kit were used here, but with some small adjustment. Also the avionics bay next to the radar cone was opened up. 

       first steps... and subsequent detailling....
MLU


For the hinge, a small piece of spare etched metal was used, bended and glued in place with super glue to add strength. 
 


Avionics bays
Additional details were added on the F-16 MLU in the opened up avionic bays at the right side of the aircraft. Check with the DACO book and also I used some of my own pictures, as can be seen here....
.


and the end result...

The anti collision light was made using spare lights left overs from the Academy F-16 kit and were given the right colour (left Red, right Blue) using Tamiya clear acryllic paint.
