Hey Folks.

This is the Kitty Hawk F-5E. Ok it is not the best kit and I recommend you to have great research before you begin.

Dont do like me and build one of the examples in the box.. You will see that Kitty Hawk failed badly.

I didnt have the time to correct all the errors for my interpretation of a IRIAF F-5. So " see is what you get".

The most obvious are the wrong canopy, the fins on the exhaust and the sharkfin on the spine.

But otherwise the build went just fine.


I have used:

Gunze Paints

Eduard Photoetch exterior and interior.

Eduard Masks

SAC landing gears

F.O.D Scratched

Thanks for all the comments.

The build was not easy at all. Please check out Chuck Sawyers build here on LSP and there you see many obstacles that you will encounter.

You can NOT go for Kitty Hawks Instructions at all, Basically I have ignored it in total. It is wrong.

Kitty Hawk have forgot a lot of things both in the mold and in the instructions.

Like the seat cushion, It is not there. There is a incomprehensible plastic thing that looks like a bent samsonite suitcase.

Cushion have to be scratched.  Please rule out the gunbarrels in box. They almost looks like a tube for a vaccum cleaner.  Use Brass instead.

I do hope my Mirage 2000 is better...


Here is a couple of WIP pics.
