Hello all

As I have not posted much I thought I would put s few pics up of my latest project. I started this late last year and as I am not a quick builder I thought I would put my (slow) progress up.

The kit is the Kinetic F-5B and will be finished as an Hellenic Air Force F-5B in the 'Aegean Blue' scheme



Not the best kit I have built but not the worst. The test dry fit looked good.



Got the Kinetic Etch set for the cockpit, which was nice, but you have to either file it down or file the inside of the fuselage to make it close.







Then I had a look at the wing tanks. In the original they supplied 2 left tanks, then when it was noticed subsequent releases had a right hand tank. Unfortunately the new tank was too thin so I had to bulk it out with a bit of plasticard.



I have now pieced it all together and put an undercoat on it.




More soon

Thanks
Simon

Simon,
Speed is not my best trait as a modeler but the important thing is your enjoyment Vs available time to do scale modeling. Thanks for posting these images. very nice work--love to see more when you can post it.

Its not a bad kit Dave, but its no Tamiya. I am enjoying it though, and it will be good practice for the Aegean Ghost camo as I now intend to do a Phantom.

Done some pre shading, not sure if it will work but I like testing things out. (Must try Salt Weathering sometime  -keep putting that one off)

Will try to start the camo over the weekend

Thanks
Simon

This is looking very nice. Like the white preshading, never thought of that. The grey has great color variations! Going to try this next time :-)

Thanks Fabian, I had tried before with no result but it was because I put the top layer on too dark.

Hopefully when its done it will work this time. 2nd colour going on tonight.

Got all the colours on but when I peeled all the masking tape off not sure if I like it, hmmmmm. 

The two greys look very similar, but then when I look at photos some almost blend together! 

Think I will leave it a day and see what I think then if I don't like it I might strip it down and start again (if I have time)

Getting there with this (hopefully finished soon so I can start my Sci Fi GB)

Finished the seats, sometimes I hate using etch. I t looks nice but for some reason I struggle with it.

[F-5%2019_zpstidoiaov] 

Also started the decals, anyone got any tips for moving a decal after its dried on? one of the black line decals is slightly off position and was wondering if I can move it. It was the last decal i placed last night and i thought it was ok but this morning I noticed it was not right.

Simon

Almost on the home stretch now

Decided to add some dirt as those Greek birds always seem dirty, just a few bits left to do.
