  6. Good afternoon Andre Best of luck with the Carpena decals I think that you already know that they don't have a very good reputation ... Hopefully with the release of these SH kits in a few weeks/months we will see also the release of more decals sheets .. Best Regards Patrice

  10. Good afternoon Craig If you can find the Modeldecal sheet it would be perfect but if not don't worry too much because I have a plan B with an Usaaf aircraft https://i.pinimg.com/originals/9b/ff/c4/9bffc442f01c1164b45b194427737f7b.jpg Best Regards Patrice
  11. Thank you very much .. I guess I will have to find another subject as I wanted to build an F 5A in NMF or simply live with the inaccuraties of the decals ... It seems that you work with the Vingtor company wich produced this decals sheet https://www.scalemates.com/kits/vingtor-decals-72-009-northrop-f-5-freedom-fighter--191394 but I guess that it is no more available ?

  15. Good evening Chris I agree with you it is not easy to tell from the photo but the Esci building notice says to paint the kit in Humbrol Silver 11 I have found some photos on the net that show a NMF overall paint and I think that I will use an Humbrol Metalcote paint ... Best Regards Patrice
  16. Good evening Today I glued the nose and the wings to the fuselage (as you can see I had to do some sanding and use some filler ) Best Regards Patrice
  17. Bonsoir Jean Thank you for your comment .. With the release of the Italeri reboxe of the Esci kit I think that you will be able to get one and maybe build it for this Gb ... Best Regards Patrice
  18. Thank you Craig Yes it goes together quickly but the front / rear fuselage ''joint'' will need some work and the use of some putty to obtain a good result , maybe I should have glued the front and rear half fuselage together before closing them together .. Best Regards Patrice
  19. Thank you very much for your comment Steve .. Best Regards Patrice
  20. Good evening Today I put some weight in the nose , I closed the 2 front fuselage halves and I also glued the front and rear fuselage I will have to use some putty because the fit between the front and rear fuselage parts is not great .. Best regards Patrice
