An interesting addition to our first page comes from, George Sarris presenting an F-5B, in Jordanian colours and HAF markings. Masterly painted, beautifully detaild and properly weathered, is an aggresive model of this agile fighter. (Comments by Thomas Sandros)

HISTORY

The Northrop F-5A and F-5B Freedom Fighter and the F-5E and F-5F Tiger II are part of a supersonic light fighter family, initially designed in the late 1950s by Northrop Corporation. Being smaller and simpler than contemporaries such as the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, the F-5 cost less to both procure and operate, making it a popular export aircraft. The F-5 started life as a privately funded light fighter program by Northrop in the 1950s. 1930669_10208617035924781_5448994513159714194_n   1_zps1ek3n3s3

The design team wrapped a small, highly aerodynamic fighter around two compact and high-thrust General Electric J85 engines, focusing on performance and low cost of maintenance. Though primarily designed for the day air superiority role, the aircraft is also a capable ground-attack platform. The F-5A entered service in the early 1960s. During the Cold War, over 800 were produced through 1972 for U.S. allies.

KIT

CONSTRUCTION

The kit has several fitting problems but an experienced modeller can find solutions. The colours I used for the comouflage are Humbrol 148/121, 50/50 for the tan, 118 for the brown and 149 for the green. For the lower surfaces I used Humbrol 28. After I applied several filters and washes with painting oils, I reached the following result.
