F-5a-2000 “turkish air force” kinetic 1/48

This aircraft is a member of 133. squadron, 3. Main Jet Base Group Command, KONYA-TURKEY.
This is an upgraded jet training aircraft before F-16 AND F-4 Squadrons. Fuselage same with classic F-5 but cockpit and avionics mostly different. Konya is the one of the sunny area of Turkey. Thats why the color of the F-5s are damaged by sun.
I used Aires F-5E detail set for upgraded cockpit but not meet the requirement for new F-5-2000 cockpit.
Landing gear bays are Aires F-5E detail set. I also added some hydraulic line from some wire.
Pilot from PJ Production.
New F-5 seat MARTIN BAKER MK16 is scratch build.
SUU-20 training pod is from Hasegawa.
Kinetic kit is nice. Almost no building problem.
All colors from Vallejo.

Best regards
