Hi folks,

Not my usual pace, but I am trying to speed build this for a local g/b featuring f-5 at the local hobby shop. Don't know if it can be finished by the 20/10 but am trying.

The bench is in a mess, did not clean anything and just started the f-5

This is the box art....one of my kits which made it from my first venture into scale Modelling long long time ago.....really interested to do the box art version but the decals are shot beyond use.....so most likely a Malaysian bird then.....as I have ready decals

Scribing going well so far, I am only doing a basic job....based on the kit lines.......hope to start on the BB pit and assembly by next week.....if all goes well

Rgds to all

Brian

Cheers guys

 

Filippo unless I can source some aggressor decals asap, it will most likely be a Malaysia bird.......

 

Mark ...........nice one !!! ....its a right mess.............but .....will tend to it once I finish the F-5 and a little mirage as well.............

 

Cheers and happy modelling

I have this kit on the SOD. Watching your build just may motivate me to get back to it.

Good start on this project. I have been considering building an F-5 or T-38 since my day job is working with their engines (J-85-5/21).

Thanks alot guys much appreciated.

 

The hasegawa f-5e is a good kit considering its age. Still looks the part...........and blends in well

 

Very curious as to how the Kitty Hawk one will look

Cheers Mike

 

I am sure it will be familiar to you.....:) thanks for selling it to me..........

 

Yes I was trying to complete it for an upcoming local event on this Saturday but I gave up to rush it yesterday as by factoring my outstation trip on the 18th till the 20th , looks a little hard to achieve....nevertheless.............it should be done hopefully by end of the month...............
