  1. Good job ! Can't wait to see final result ! Cheers, Nenad
  2. Hello guys, I can't get enough of HAF birds so, I started another one. Previously, I had some trouble with PM Model kit in 1/72 scale but it turned out great for me at the end. But this project will be a little bit harder. First of all, because of the scale - of course, F-5A is not big if I compare it with MiG-25/F-15 or something else. Second this kit is really bad - it comes with literally no cockpit at all, only with something that looks like an ejection seat that was designed and built by 10 year old's. Anyway, pictures will talk better than me, for sure. Gun bay will be opened, some electronics at the other side. I'm fully armed with patience and steel nerves. At the moment, everything looks just like this : And, yes, one question for all - where I can find Icarus decals for F-5A in 1/48 ? At least, stencils will do most of the work, probably 70%... thanks ! Seat was made from scratch with a little assistance from Italeri's F-4E ( which will also be in HAF markings ) And everything together : That's it for now, new update will be for a few months, I hope... Cheers, Nenad
  3. Hi guys, Finished almost a year ago, but I've decided to take new pictures - definitely better that the first ones ! PM Model 1/72 scale, I gave my best to finish this bird under 3 weeks last summer and somehow, I did it. Complete re-scribing job on panels, add some rivets, full scratch in the cockpit, resin seat and clear parts from HB F-5. Decals are home-made variant and I know they're old because there's no name of company. Hope you like it and all the best ! Have a good day ! Cheers, Nenad
  4. First, I would like to apologize for bad pictures... it's time for new camera, a real one, not from mobile phone. Just can't do it better right now... Great kit, I had really good time doing this one ! Hope you like it ! Cheers, Nenad
  5. Thanks ! Ejection seat is from L&M Resin, Mr. Likso from Croatia... Small update...
  6. Right, I'm masochist when it comes to kits... But in the other hand, today's kits are boring and they should be called puzzles, everything is detailed and super precise... I just can't find anything exciting there. From time to time, I do quality kits, just to relax myself from projects like this... Scribing is really an easy job, you just need patience and steady hands and on the first place, good plan. Usually, I do that when parts are not glued yet in order to to some corrections if it's needed but I made an exception this time. First, you need to find good and precise blueprints in scale. The easiest way to scribe panel lines is to draw them first on the plastic and then do the job. You also asked how I translate positions of the lines from a drawing onto the model's surface - well, if everything is in scale and main parts are matching with your blueprints, then, I do it with a ruler by measuring the distance of each panel. Raised lines are useful if you are a beginner in scribing and it can definitely help you. I use to do that few years ago and it works. Cockpit is almost done... Cheers, Nenad
  7. And now, the cockpit... not finished, still a lot details to do... Cheers, Nenad
  8. Thank you ! I'm using one from Trumpeter, home made knife and simple needle... Almost finished !
  9. Long time no see ! I really want to finish this little kit so it's time for some serious work !
  10. Good evening to you guys ! Just a simple and fast build from me, well known Academy kit. Pictures are not the best, I know that, but can't do any better than this... Syrian Air Force, this aircraft was captured by FSA few months ago in Al-Tabqa Air Base, 2014... Hope you like it ! Cheers, Nenad
