jesTer Posted October 4, 2021 Share Posted October 4, 2021 Build 8 for 2021 is Shin Kazama's F-5E Tiger II from the manga/anime Area 88. Kazama pilots the Tiger II from Chp 5-10. This is the first aircraft he flies that sports the iconic flaming haired Unicorn on its tail. The kit is from Hobbyboss which fits OK but is not quite accurate in the details. Markings and the Shin Kazama figure are from the Hasegawa F-8E Area 88 kit. Construction was straightforward and I added modified F-16 missile rails for the AIM-7 Sparrow missiles and an additional pair of AIM-9s for a 6 missile loadout. Painting and Finishing however had problems so I'm not 100% satisfied with the result. Painted with acrylics with only a little weathering.
