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 instruct[...]
From 1973 a systematic analysis of the aircraft market and evaluation of several types took place.
At an early stage, the Federal Council decided to focus the evaluation on one aircraft, the Tiger F-5E.
After thorough testing, the Federal Counci[...]
Tiger F-5E Swiss Air Force Staffel 19 Airbase Sion Wallis Schweiz,
Kit: AFV CLUB 1:48, Decals
This is my first of 2 entries for the Year of the Cat group build. I already had this on my 2017 build plan, so was happy about that!
This is an older kit that was recently reboxed with new art and the Sundowners aggressor decals (among options[...]

Here's my just completed, fresh baked, F-5E Photo Recon, an Italeri 1/48 kit. I read some reviews of this kit after I bought it and before I started it that had me worried, but it really went together good. I'm glad I didn't read them before I b[...]
Here is my 1/48 Kinetic F-5A Freedom fighter with the markings of Turkish Air Force circa 1971. This was finished few months ago.

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[...]
I have always loved the lines of the Northrop F-5A. Sleek and elegant with that great area-ruled fuselage, it is a real classic. This model is the one that was built concurrent with my Iraqi MiG-21MF. The kit is the ancient Testors (ex-Hawk?)[...]
