KH Northrop F-5N Tiger II WIP

Recommended Posts

Ok guy's, time for a update. I was a little in doubt, whether or not to open de gun bay area's. Finally, why not, let's give it a try, and i'm quit happy with the result.:D

 

For the gun bay area's i used some Eduard pe, not much, but enough to make the difference.

After everything was glued and ready for painting, i used the new AK real color black which i received together with the Tirpitz book i ordered from AK directly. A nice present, so i give it a try and i was very pleased with the result.

Next thing to do, giving the gun bay it's grey base color.

Details are painted with a mix of Alclad, MRP and Vallejo colors.

Finally a wash was added, for this i used the Tamiya brown panel line wash.

That looks awesome, Danny!

Thank's Ray. I was in doubt to open up the gun bay's, because of the rather heavy appearance of the kit's ammo belt. I had the Eduard pe ammo belt from the Big Ed set, but this one was way to short to use this in a proper way so i had to stick with the kit's belt. After all was painted i was happy i did.

I have just seen this thread, a great start.  I have the kit in my stash and there is a problem with the tail decals for the scheme that you have chosen.  Look closely at the sun burst the black AF insignia, the one on the right is mirrored and clearly wrong.  It is not something easy to put right.

I'm not gonna use the kit decals Barry. For this build i all ready have the Furball Top Gun decal sheet. I also decided which color scheme i'm gonna use.

At the moment i'm waiting for the colors to arrive, but for now, i'm working to some details which are need to removed to get the proper configuration for a 80's bird.
