  1. Ressurecting this one from the archives AND the shelf of doom.... I lost some of the original "in progress" pics during the "Photobucket Scam," but did manage to recover most of them. The starting point was a Hasegawa F-20.... The original starting point photo was one of those lost... so here's a photo of the seat just to fill in the gap... from a Revell AG F-16 with some spare pfotoetch belts...(little blurry....) Should be finishing this one up soon....
  2. Old Viper Tester

    Tigershark Test Drives

    In 1983, Northrop was on a sales drive to sell their F-20 Tigershark while flight test was continuing at Edwards AFB. What better way to end a sales pitch than with a flight in the aircraft - complete with prospective national markings for photos suitable for framing. The sales flights were chased by the the Northrop F-5F crewed by Northrop test/instructor pilots... Jordan, 26 Jan 83 Pakistan, 7 Feb 83 Philippines, 10 Feb 83 Kuwait, 14 Feb 83 UAE, 18 Feb 83 Turkey, 22 Feb 83 Luftwaffe, 11 Oct 83 There were probably others, but I had my own test programs to tend to... Thanks for looking Sven

    US Navy F-20N Centennial Scheme

  4. Singapore Tigersharks (F-20) 1:48 Miliverse In a programme spanning two decades and costing $1.2 billion, Northrop's F-20 was perhaps one of their most expensive failures, mostly due to policy changes and political pressure. They were looking for a replacement to the lightweight and low-cost F-5 Freedom Fighter that would keep costs low while giving much improved performance to keep pace with the Mig-21s that were being exported to Soviet aligned nations at the time. Eschewing the twin engine format of the original, it had a large GE F404 engine installed in a suitably reshaped rear fuselage, while the wings, forward fuselage and empennage stayed very similar to the original. Under the Carter regime it was decided that leading edge technology shouldn't be included to prevent it from falling into Soviet hands, but after the Reagan administration took over, policy soon changed to giving allies modified versions of the F-16 and even the F-15, which rapidly eroded its market. Add to that the total lack of interest in selling the aircraft by the Government, and the customer base dwindled away until in 1986 the project was finally cancelled whilst circling the drain. As an aircraft? It was well-liked, well-tested and although two of the prototypes crashed killing their pilots, it was found that both were due to the pilots losing consciousness from excessive G-forces, leaving the aircraft's reputation unblemished. With one prototype left intact and another only partially completed, the remainder was shipped off on cancellation to Los Angeles where it hangs in the California Science Centre. It seems to have been yet another Cold War Warrior that got the first three of the four dimensions right, but fell foul of the important fourth politics. These decals from Singapore based Miliverse give an actual scheme for Singapore applied to the real F-20, as well as an interesting insight into potential users of the F-20 in the ASEAN region if it had been produced. As well as markings for multiple Singaporean aircraft in different schemes; they have included markings for Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia & The Philippines. There is one major sheet shown on the left, 3 smaller sheets shown on the right; and a small sheet of numbers which is not shown. The decals look excellent, well printed, colour dense and with minimal carrier film. Conclusion These decals will help the modeller make a good looking, believable F-20. Highly Recommended.

  6. Over the last 12 months I've managed to acquire 3 of the old LS 1/144 F-20 kits. They're great little kits that need a few corrections but no major surgery I'll be finishing 82-0062 in it's grey scheme and N3986B in both grey and anthracite schemes.
