AFV Club 1/48 F-5F Tiger II

14 posts in this topic

Built for the 2016 Special Schemes SIG display at Telford. A lovely kit to build.

 

decals are from Two Bobs , the FOD covers are from Steel Beach, seats from Quickboost, the AIM-9M from the spares box with Airwaves seeker cover. The ACMI pod was scratchbuilt as the kit item was replaced by an updated version in 2011-2012. Wheels are from Royale Resin

Beautiful!  I have this kit and am happy to hear how nice it is.  I only hope mine comes out nearly as nice as yours did when I build it.

 

Bravo!

These are great kits, just a joy to build. I have a half dozen in the stash. I wish AFV Club would up scale these to 1/32, and with the new 1/32 Furball F-5E Topgun Tiger decals it would sell like hot cakes!

 

Fabulous build, love the subdued weathering. Great job on it.

Now you should search PJ productions, CMK, Aerobonus, etc. for a sitting 1/48 Santa figur!!! Next step: join a model show!

(Btw. you did everything right, also with AM. And so you came out with a really nice family model Tiger!)
