F-20 Tigershark

Got another one under my belt recently, I completed this kit a few weeks ago. Kept it simple and straightforward as it was the first time I spraying with Vallejo Air Paints – following the kit instructions for paint identification and FS #'s.

I was lucky with the decals – they did have some yellowing and needed to be convinced to be separated from the sheet. A few times I had to slip a blade under a few of the decals as they were suborn to fully separate. All decals adhered well with the help of using Micro Set/Sol solutions. Some black decal trim was used on the missiles and the rear tail fin section to ensure a straight sharp lines.

  1. Nice! I have this same kit, though I stole the centerline tank for my Malaysian TigerEye. Came out looking nice.

  2. Great job, George.
    Always have been a fan of this a model.
    You made this one look like real.

  3. Nice build of a great vintage kit. When I was in college in the 1980’s I was hoping that the F-20 would go into production. But alas. . .

  4. The Tigershark was one of the best looking that never was.

    Quite a nice model of it.

  5. Nicely done! Always liked this plane, I think originally it was to be designated the F-5G.

  6. Looks good George.

  7. Great job, George, on this model of the sleekest/sexiest a/c ever, IMHO.

  8. Agree with the above gents, George.
    This is an excellent work of a very beloved plane.
