What if - RSAF F-20 Tigershark


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, my first post here and first kit after a long long time so be gentle please🙃.

Kit is mainly OOB with addition of some scratchbuilt details (door bays and landing gear, ejection seat, gun barrels).

The idea was what if Republic of Singapore Airforce acquired F-20 Tigershark to replace it's F-5 Tigers🤔.

 

Kit: 1/72 Hasegawa F-20 Tigershark

Decals: Aztecmodels decals, Republic of Singapore Airforce, 141 Sqn

Paint: Vallejo primer and Ammo Mig acrylics & varnish

Weathering: Ammo Mig washes and Oilbrushers, AK Interactive weathering pencils

Extra's: Hasegawa weapons set

I remember building this kit several years ago as another "what if" and putting it in Netherlands AF markings in an F-16 style camouflage. Your build brought that back to my memory. Of course, my build wasn't nearly as nice as yours and didn't have the weapons fit yours has. I think you'll agree, it's a great kit; easy build and it just looks right. Thanks for showing your model. Great work!

The Tigershark is really nice and if the F16s weren't around during that time,the F20 would have been a popular purchase.Singapore ( in fact some of the South Asian F5 users too ) was keen on it.Love the weathering but honestly it's a well known fact that RSAF won't allow their planes to be that shabby!
