  1. I have just completed this today for the F-5 STGB and there were times when I wondered if I was going to make it. Construction went well and I scratch built some of the agricultural looking equipment seen behind the fin on these aircraft along with the smoke generator pipework and a couple of the more prominent aerials. I also replaced the nose pitot with some micro tubing. I also used a couple of Pavla seats and a Quickboost set that replaces the ducts above and below the rear fuselage. I had decided to use the AirDecal sheet for the Turkish Stars markings but, after failing to find a near match for the red colour in my paint assortment, I took the decision to mask for the majority of the red - including the bird design on the underside. I used Frisket to create the masks using a scan of the decals as the pattern and then sprayed the red over white. I removed the masks only to find that I was left with a sticky residue over all the areas I had just sprayed. A tip from fellow Britmodeller Azureglo helped to resolve the problem - WD40 carefully wiped over the area removed the residue (if using this test on an inconspicuous area first). Then I had some paint creep on the canopies and had to polish the inside to remove that the best way that I could. So I was tempted to test the kits aerodynamic qualities on a couple of occasions but in the end produced this, I hope you like it. Link to build is here NF-5B for those who are interested.
