I lived on an Air Force base all my life with my Father being in the United States Air Force, I've watched the Thunderbirds perform many times and I love them, I went on this site looking for a really good Thunderbirds skin for the F-16, yet could not find one, so I took it upon myself to make it.
Here's what I have so Far:

Welp, here's a little update, the nose is proving to be a pain, but I'd say the bird on the bottom is coming along nicely

Nice My grandpa was in the USAF during Vietnam. He made it through thank god but he sadly passed away in 2012 the last family trip we took was to see the Thunderbirds.

What do you plan to do with these planes will they have the smoke effect, And will the Pylons be removed

Thanks! Yeah My father was in the USAF for 10 years, so I grew a love for the Thunderbirds, as far as the mod goes, I am attempting to add a smoke effect, not sure how and the pylons, in the weapon menu there's a clean option that should get rid of the pylons it does besides 1 pylon I've tried contacting the creator with no luck, I also plan on adding all numbers including the solos and having a little menu that let's you select which number

Wish I could give an exact date, but I'm constantly busy now and have little time to work, and well I also need to figure out how to remove that last pylon and how to add a smoke trail

Well guys an update :
With the recent addition of the F-16D from Firewills F-16 mod I took advantage and also started skinning for the F-16D, the templates are almost the exact same luckily obviously the D model is only going to contain the Number 7 while ther C model is going to have 1-6 here's what I have, finally got around to working on the nose a bit more, what do you guys and gals think?

Thanks mate! Between work and college it's hard to find time to work on it, right now I'm working on the bird some more, it's proving to be quite a pain with the way the template is none the less I'm expecting it to be ready Late February early march hopefully

Hey guys! I know this thread went silent and here's why. The mod creator Firewill told me a few years back he planned on updating the F-16 model (I wasn't expecting it to take this long) so I decided I'd stop working on this project until it was updated. Well a few days ago he updated it and provided a new 4k template (previous was 2k). I must say though I'm glad I waited. I've started completely from scratch and have to say this new bird is turning out better.
Here's a picture of the old plane (Only screenshot I still have)

And here's some of the new one.
