Hobby Boss 1/72 Northrop F-5E Tiger II

November 29, 2017 in Aviation

This F-5E Tiger has been built for some months although , life has gotten in the way and I have only just got around to posting it.
Its a very inexpensive kit with 4 nice decals schemes including my favorite for the USMC VMFT 401 ‘the snipers’.
The aggressor camo was formed using white tack although I had a false start when I discovered that some Tamiya grays are exactly the same colour even though they have different numbers!
The kit is showing its age a bit but it goes together well and is fun to build. It is OOB.
Paints are Tamiya and mixed by eye, Nice decals very thin, but can be a bit grabby ask me how I know!
Best to all Dave

  1. Looks good David, nice colors, well done.

  2. Nicely done, David. The F-5 is an under-appreciated aircraft, in many ways.

  3. Nice job, nice aircraft, might be time to add one to my stash.

  4. Looks very neat, Dave, a model not often seen for some reason. You could enter this into the Year of the Cat group build – Tiger – get it?

  5. Excellent work, sir….love it!

  6. David, I always enjoy a well done 1/72 scale build, and that’s what we have here, Looks really nice !

  7. Looks great David! This is the same kit I have on hand for the companion Sundowners aggressor in tan scheme to go with the one I recently posted for the Cat build. I’m glad to hear it went together well.
