Marine Sniper...they flying type

Recommended Posts

1/48 AVF F-5F with Two Bobs markings.  Great kit, very small pieces.  I actually built this kit to about 85% 6 months ago then lost one of the horizontal stabs.  Few weeks ago AVF sent me an entire tree with a replacement stab.  So after my disaster with my Tamiya Tomcat...I pulled this back down and finished this today.  OOB build but I made milliput seatbelts. 

 

Great kit....go buy one and build it if you can find/afford them.

Cheers

Collin

Outstanding seatbelts! Do you have any pix of them being constructed?

The vid I used to learn and try my hand at it.  I also used it on my F-4 Phantom build.  One thing I need to improve on is making them a tab thinner.

 

 

Here are my Phantom results"

Nice looking model - I normally use Tamyia tape for my seat belts, but I like the way the putty can be used to bend to make the belts look real.  I'm going to try this on my next one - thanks for the tip!
