Swiss F-5F Tiger II – Italeri 1/72 + scratch
I made this kit as an offer to my good friend Peter. His parents are from Switzerland and he keeps a strong bond to the country so, as I knew he likes planes in swiss colors…
The Kit is from Italeri and it’s not very impressive… The instructions are the worst: some small mistakes but a lot of omissions: lots of pieces and decals are not drawn, so I figured where to put them by photos.
(Thanks Internet for all the photos)
As some parts don’t even exist (the arch between the two canopies, for instance) I’ve made some scratchbuild as l Like 🙂 and some improvements (like the exausts on the sidewinders or small parts on the cockpit)
As they are really awesome, I include some photos of the real plane.
As usual, opinions, questions, comments or advices are welcomed
Thanks for your time
