Small and highly aerodynamic, focusing on performance and a low cost of maintenance, smaller and simpler than its contemporaries, it is not surprising that the F-5 is quite a few times referred as “the F-16 f its time”.

This is my take on the Mysterious Mig seen in that movie, It's a neat little kit with few hang ups. Most of the decals came from the kit , the yellow circles on the tail were kit bashed. The running joke at the museum that I volunteer at [...]

Mostly the kit was an easy and rewarding build - I say mostly as the fit of the intakes was laughable, not so much as a gap at the [...]
Here is one of my completions this year. I have quite a few of these kits earmarked to be USN Adversary aircraft.
I built up the exhaust cans and intakes, using photos of the real things. While my compressor fans look a bit rough in the [...]
