1/48 AFV Club Northrop F-5F Iranian Air Force

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

This is my latest completed model the excellent F-5F by AFV Club. This really is a fantastic kit and has lots of detail straight from the box and I only added a few extra bits in the cockpits and replaced the kit seats with resin Martin Baker seats as fitted to iranian F-5's and scratch built the extra canopy breakers which are fitted to the front seats.

I really enjoyed building this kit with one exception, the decals! They are very good at shattering and that's about all they are good for.

I built this as part on the ongoing F-5 Group Build and here is a link to my build thread:-

You really should pop along and have a look at the great builds on this iconic aircraft. Anyway here are the pictures....

Hi Craig,

Wonderful work you have done on this Tiger! Congratulations !

Re shattering decals - do you mean the AFV ones or the aftermarket set ?

I hope the TFB markings I sent you worked OK.

Greetings

Diego
