Just added some work in progress photos - The basic camo is finished. Work is taking time due to details.
The underside is almost done, on the top I need to rework the intake cover and add dirt, wear and some paint chipping.

Well, I decided to call it a day! The F-5A is finished. Would I build another Kinetic kit ? No, I do not think so.
Still this is a satisfying result, as it is my first post ww2 jet!

It's getting hard to tell which we're pictures of the real one from the model. Excellent work

And I thought it was not allowed to show images of the original and pretend that should be the model!

Love it ! Very nice pictures also. Congrats !!!

Aghis Barberopoulos
Many thanks to each and every one for all your kind words!
@Holger: Be prepared for some putty and sanding sessions. Make sure you have some fine grit sanding papers, as Kinetic's plastic is very soft and requires polishing after every touch...
@Augie: Special thanks, glad you like it!

I love the F-5

Excellent job.

Aghis Barberopoulos
Thank you guys. The F-5 is such a good design, it still looks good today - Imagine what a nice aircraft F-20 would be...unfortunately it was dumped I suspect due to the F-16A...

Dave Flitton
That is correct! The USAF wanted F-16s, they did not like the cost efficient model of the F-5 or its derivatives. That is why they retired the A-10 for a faster less efficient design (F-35).

Hi Aghis, I am most impressed with your build and, all the others you have posted here in you album stack.
You see, What I am doing is I am visiting all the mates on my "Mates list" checking out all their albums so I have a better idea of who it is and what they do when they visit my builds and leave comments.
It is a great way to see just what you like to do in the way of subject matter and from what I have seen of your albums so far I am most impressed with. !
The one I do like a great deal and the one you have put a great deal of work into is the Marder III Ausf.H 1/35 Tristar.
The detail you squeezed in there is amazing.
I hope you didn't mind my "Hit and Run" but I have a lot of other mates to visit, but I am glad to say "Hello" I love your work.
Cheers Aghis. 🙂

Not exactly Kerry, we have all kinda seasons and climates, just a couple of hours drive from Athens you can get to ski resorts in the winter!
