2nd Build of 'The MiG' (F-5E), Italeri 1/72
Well...the Cowboys just lost in overtime on Thanksgiving, so I thought I'd make a post to cheer me up a bit.
Not exactly 100% completed as the pilot has yet to be assigned - review pending.
I liked the first 'Top Gun MiG' from June enough to make a second build - this time I'm keeping it on my shelf.
This Italeri Kit No.136 was a much nicer build with a nicely detailed cockpit and a great Aggressor decal sheet.
With nicely raised panel lines, the kit was easy enough to build.
One issue was that the plastic was a bit to brittle and some plastic did chip off in some spots when cutting from the tree and I ended up with one broken wingtip rail.
Sprayed with matt black enamel from a rattle can, pledge used for the insignia, then coated with Micro Satin.
Glad I kept an extra copy of the base sticker for this build.
