VnAF F-5A ‘Freedom Fighter’
February 19, 2017 in Aviation
Hey folks, my most recent (two hours ago) completed project – The 1:48 Kinetic F-5A/C ‘Freedom Fighter’.
Mostly the kit was an easy and rewarding build – I say mostly as the fit of the intakes was laughable, not so much as a gap at the rear, more of a ‘yawning chasm’ – however, I’ve wanted a 1:48 F-5 in this exact scheme since I saw a 1:72 model at the UK Nationals when it was held in Stoneleigh !!, yes I’m that patient.
On the shelf it looks very comfortable alongside my other Vietnam builds and I’m really pleased with the final result. Would I build another ??, well probably a two-seater with a full load of three drop tanks like we used to see at the Mildenhall shows back in the day. Please feel free to ask any questions, make any comments or criticisms.
AFN, next something in 1:72.
