NATO fighter/bomber NF-5 - 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hi and Happy New Year,

 

Please find my latest completion, the NF-F5 freedom fighter. The kit is from Tiger Hobbies and has its problems, Shape issues and very deep panel lines. Nevertheless, for £13.60 (incl shipping) I had tremendous fun building it.

Panel lines were filled in and re-scribed where necessary. The only after market items were the masters pitot-tube and gun barrels and the NF-5/F86 DutchDecal sheet.

The kit is not for the purist in the hobby, I hope Kinetic will re-issue the f-5a soon again.

 

Paint and clear coats by Mr Color and home made wash and tamiya weathering powder/pastels.

 

Apologies for the photography,  I only have an iphone and 2 desk lamps.

 

In the "work in progress" section on Britmodeler I have listed the build. (Since I am a newbie, I haven't figured out to insert the link in  this field)  :-)

 

Continuing with my f-15D from academy, hopefully a little more accurate in outline and detail.

 

Hope you like it.

Thanks Tony, If Kinetic does a re-issue I may be tempted to do the other f-5 schemes as well. So far I am tiger hobbied out 🙂 Thanks for your comment.
