  1. I agree entirely VC. The Esci F-5A kit is still the best early F-5 even all these years later. This DreamModel kit looks like a re-hash of the HobbyBoss effort to me, even down to the short windscreen. Those bombs look way too fat as well. I'll save my coin and hope that Wolfpack deliver the goods. I still have plenty of Italeri Tigers in the stash, enough to last me a few years yet.
  2. Any help with colour call outs would be appreciated too. http://www.makettinfo.hu/forum/image.php?img_url=upload%2F201101%2F44f_usn_f-5e_160793_544_fighter_weapons_school_1987.jpg
  3. Thanks Barzin. I will try to get my hands on some of those.
  4. I've read that Iranian F-5E & F-5F Tigers use Martin-Baker IRQ-7A ejection seats. Can any F-5 experts out there confirm this? Also does anyone know if a 1:72 resin example is available? Thanks in advance.
  5. Excellent progress on your Farmer. I'm building an East German example at the moment and I had the same problem with the instructions and air scoops. Good to know it's not just me.
  6. You've hit the nail on the head there Wez. I've just built the Airfix MiG-17F and whilst I'm a little disappointed with the lack of interior, wrong seat and other mistakes it is still the best Fresco out there. Scale wise it is spot on, some details missing and others a little clunky. I found fit around the nose was terrible but that could just be me. Overall I'm happy it is finished but I won't buy another.
  7. Could this kit be used to build a South African Air Force MR.3?
  8. That is a stunning build. The weathering is spot on as is the load out and finish. I'm gonna have to get me one of those Tamiya kits.
