Looks great Tom. How's the intakes on this kit?

Are you going to add some weathering? It looks pretty clean right now.

Thanks Ray. The intakes on this one aren't too bad. The kit has raised panel detail all over though and if it were mine i'd have rescribed to be honest. This one was built for a commision and was to be out of box from the start and relatively clean overall.

Maybe someone in the forum can help me with a question ... Those 'old' Swiss Air Force Tiger's are changing relatively often their squadrons in the USA, also the Numbers. Can someone explain why ?

Muuuuhhh - welcome in the land of milk and chocolate

Great work! I wish I had the time to do such things. The F-5 has always a great looking aircraft, to my eye. When I was a boy, I used to build models all of the time. I used to like to create 'what-if's', example of aircraft that may have been, had events went a certain way.

One example was an F-15A in RAF colors. The RAF had evaluated the F-15 in the 80's and opted to develop the Tornado ADV instead.
