  3. Doyusha is to repop in October 2020 the HobbyBoss 1/72nd Northrop F--5E Tiger II - ref. 401439 Release in October 2020 Source: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10725401 V.P.
  4. A bit of a mini theme this month with two US Dissimilar Air Combat Training aircraft, the Italeri F-21 Lion (Kfir C1) and Airfix F-5E Tiger II. Two very different styles of kits, with the Airfix kit rather chunky compared with the relatively nice Italeri one. My 3-tone greys were a bit of a nightmare and took some time to try and blend in, whilst the F-5's brown and sand didn't quite come out the way I intended - with everything shut down and me isolated at home, I ended up using the paint I had rather than the paint I wanted!
  5. More from the 65th FWS (pre-1983) and 65th Aggressor Squadron (1983 and after) S/n 74-1529, April 1982. Looks like I missed this one looking for blue bort numbers, so this is a second one appearing at this time. 74-1530, April 1981. Old Lizard scheme. 74-1530, June 1983. I think this is supposed to be the Sand pattern. The fuselage matches well, but the vertical tail not so much. 74-1536, April 1981. Old Ghost scheme. 74-1538, April 1981. Old Ghost scheme. 74-1538, May 1981. Grey 2 scheme. 74-1546, April
  6. This project has been running in the background of a number of other builds over the last couple of years. I'm afraid there are no pictures of the early stages of assembly, but we can pick things up now as I start to prepare and apply the paint. I've not done much modelling over the last few months due to work and other things, but I have some spare cycles now to finish the Sabre 4 (repair) and progress this and the Vosper. The IRIAF or the Islamic Republic Iranian Air Force, and prior to that the IIAF, or Imperial Iranian Airforce, has always fascinated me in terms of both aircraf
  7. This is the ejection seat called out in the 1/48 AFV Club Iranian Saeqeh-80 version of their F-5E kit painted according to the kit instructions. It was on a kit specific sprue with the twin tails unique to this version. The standard F-5E seats are in the kit, but this is the one called out in the instructions. I'd like to replace it with a resin one, but have no idea what it's supposed to represent and I haven't found any clear photos of one of Iran's Saeqeh's to identify what it should be.
  8. The final touches were completed today, and I present my Airfix 1/72 F-5E finished in IRIAF markings. This started as a background project some time ago, but lately took on a life of it's own. The basic kit is Airfix, with Hi-Decal markings for a fairly up to date Iranian Airforce Example. Resin seat came from the True Detail set TD 72404 for the F-5E, Sidewinders from Eduard and Mk.82 Snakeyes from Kora, although I had to get a replacement set from Hannant's as the first batch were really rough. The second batch were better, but they still needed a lot of work to get them resembl
  9. Some Navy F-5s of the Navy Fighter Weapons School (Top Gun). 159879, Nellis AFB, January 1981 159880 Nellis AFB, January 1981 159881, Nellis AFB, January 1981. Heart and diamond in the camouflage scheme beneath the canopy? 159882, Nellis AFB transient ramp, November 1980. Probably there to coordinate support for the NFWS detachment in January 1981. 159882, NAS Miramar, March 1983 160794, Nellis AFB transient ramp, January 1981. 160964, Nellis AFB, January
  10. F-5E Update sets, Seatbelts & Masks 1:32 Eduard for Kitty Hawk Kit The new tool F-5E from Kitty Hawk was welcomed in this scale. Eduard are now along with some sets for it. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Interior Set (32930) This set has two pre-painted frets, and one brass one. You get cockpit details, i
  11. My next Hobby Boss kit. I like USN aircraft and I especially like all things Northrop so I gonna give this one a go. Box art. Paint schemes. I am going to do the USN scheme Decals. Bits. Thanks for stopping by and having a look. Stephen
  12. F-5E adversaries with the 527th Aggressor Squadron, RAF Alconbury, 1986-87. 74-1532 74-1534 74-1544 74-1545 74-1549 74-1553 A bit fuzzy, but a decent study of the camo scheme... 74-1554 74-1560 74-1566 Thanks for looking, Sven
  13. F-5E tiger II (KH32018) 1:32 Kitty Hawk The original F-5 design was lead at Northrop by Edgar Schmued who previously at North American had been the Chief designer of the P-51 and F-86. The F-5 was designed to reverse the trend of bigger and heavier fighters to produce a small, agile, high performance aircraft. It was also recognised that life cycle costs, and the ability to upgrade the design needed to be thought out at the beginning. Thus after winning the International Fighter Aircraft Competition in 1970 to provide a low cost effective fighter to America's alli
  14. A few F-5Es from the 64th Fighter Weapons Squadron. s/n 71-1635, June 1981. I think this was supposed to be the "Frog" scheme, but that brown just doesn't look right. 72-1388, April 1981. 73-0882, February 1981. Snake scheme. Note the 2 in the bort number looks like an inverted 5. 73-0847, May 1981. Pumpkin scheme. 73-0847 again, June 1981. Pumpkin scheme, but looks like someone found a different shade of tan/brown. 73-0865, June 1981. Don't know what scheme this was supposed to be. Many of u
  15. All from the 65th Fighter Weapons Squadron at Nellis. S/n 72-1386, February 1981. Vietnamese Air Force scheme. 71-0846, May 1981. Pumpkin scheme. 73-0846, June 1983. Pumpkin scheme. 73-0866, October 1981. Pumpkin scheme and a replacement rudder. 73-0897, April 1981. Frog scheme. 74-1509, April 1981. Old Ghost scheme. 74-1512, February 1981. Old Ghost scheme. 74-1516, April 1981. Old Ghost scheme. 74-1529, November 1980. Old Lizard scheme Thanks for looking,
  16. More from the 64th Fighter Weapons Squadron at Nellis. S/n 74-1511, April 1981. 74-1514, April 1981. New Ghost 2 scheme. 74-1515, April 1981. Old Ghost scheme. 74-1519, April 1981. Old Ghost scheme. 74-1519, July 1984. New Ghost 1 scheme. 74-1528, April 1981. Old Lizard scheme. 74-1528, November 1981. Grey 1 scheme. 74-1531, February 1981. Grape scheme. 74-1537, May 1981. Grey 2 scheme. 74-1537, February 1984. Looks like a variation of the old Blue scheme?
  17. Just a few images of Northrop flight test operations at Edwards AFB in the 1980s... F-5E, USAF s/n 71-1418, seen in 1983 with YAPS test nose boom fitted: Test missions without the nose boom in 1984: RF-5E, s/n 71-1420 I know its fuzzy, but it shows the placement of the camera aperture covers. Tiger motif on the vertical tail... Was it Airfix that did an RF-5E in 1/72? RF-5E, s/n 80-0334, in Malaysian markings. Ready to take Runway 22... RF-5E, s/n 84-0199, with
  18. This was finished many months ago but has been gathering dust due to mojo fail. Surprising as it's the best model I have managed to create with my meagre skills so far. WIP is here. Eduard etch IP for the Italeri F-5E used, Quickboost seat and Mr Color paints. Masking was with the very wonderful Panzer putty as shown in the WIP. Decals OOB, worked perfectly except where I was stingy with the Alclad Aqua gloss. Let the show begin: Eduard IP for Italeri F-5e with interesting paint wipe technique from ARC Quickboost seat Seriously pointy pitot made with Albion Alloys m
  19. Just recently I started a 1/72 F-5E Tiger and intend to build one of the Aggressors based at Alconbury. I'm slowly going through building Cold War jets based in East Anglia. I've got the Heller kit which includes airframe 01535 "black 35 in the blue/grey scheme. The thing is, the yellow on the sheet has been printed out of register. This is important as the large black numerals are bordered by yellow. Now did Heller notice this and correct the misprint or are all these sheets out of register? If anybody can help out with sparing the decals that would be great. Also can
  20. My new project is the Northrop F-5E Freedom Fighter and I'll be using the Hobby Boss kit. This is the first time I'll build a Hobby Boss kit I'll represent an aircraft from the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) of the 1st/14th Fighter Squadron, Pampa Squadron, based in Canoas Air Base located in Canoas, Rio Grande do Sul. I'll try to make the FAB 4865 as it receive a commemorative painting scheme celebrating the 53rd Anniversary of the Squadron creation in 2000. Profile by Marcelo Ribeiro F-5E FAB 4865 in Canoas, RS Brazil circa 2000 The different paint schemes for the 1/14 Gav.
  21. This was a deadline fail for the F-5 STGB and rather than send it to the shelf of doom, I’ve decided to finish it as normal WIP. Here she is, first colour on. New stuff for me: Panzer putty. It is some kind of silly putty clone and apparently is the answer to our camo problems. As this is a 3 colour scheme, it seems like the perfect alternative to endless tape masks. Now for a blast of Mr Color 337 and see if this works without lifting the previous paint. Beautiful stuff, no paint lift and lovely clean edges. Panzerputty? Ja! A day of drying , some micromeshing of the overspray
  22. Please vote for your preference - F-14 GB III or Topgun/NFWS GB Right, with the upcoming release by AMK and Tamiya of two new tool 1/48 F-14 Tomcats, I would like to propose the F-14 Tomcat III GB for 2018. If there is not enough interest, with Fightertown's recent releases of the excellent Topgun movie stars decals, who would be up for a Topgun GB, where any NFWS aircraft is fair game - F-14, F-16N, A-4E, F-5E, F-21 Kfir - you name it, as long as it was a Topgun/Navy Fighter Weapons School aircraft, it's on! No Airforce aggressors I'm afraid... Edit: 2018 instead of 2017
  23. With two GBs under my belt, I fearlessly stumble in to my third. As I want to practise three colour camo and doing weird stuff with Panzer Putty, it will be in in the Marines Aggressor camo. I’ve got a nice resin seat that I will no doubt manage to make look like a mangled jellybean with my customary skill and ineptitude. Some nice Italeri fit etch that will be tormented into fitting with a trusty Tamiya etch file. Or not. Colours will be a mix of Mr Hobby & Mr Color with their wonderful levelling thinner. Scotch will be Laphroaig Quarter Cask for good days and Bells floor polish gra
  24. Detail set for almost forgotten by other manufacturers of aftermarket model of Northrop F-5E Tiger II produced by Hasegawa in 1/32. Includes airbrakes, auxiliary air intakes, boundary layer flow fence in air intakes and braking parachute hatch.
