Still Star-fighting I see... But coming to some decisive finalization steps and looking great on the way..!

Did I mention there should be a medal for applying all the stencils to 4-104´s at the same time..? ;)
1. January, 15:09
Erik Leijdens
Ah yes Slavo, slowly working on them! There are a lot of stencils on the 104. From the Dutch Starfighter foundation I received 4 sets of stencils, additions for the duals are on their way too..! A hell of a job, so for the sake of not getting mad I'll started a Tempest kit too :)

Will you be painting the underside aluminum?
17. January 2019, 15:08
Erik Leijdens
Good to hear that! Yes, bare aluminium undersides as per KNIL painting instructions.

Added some pics of the cowling with the filled air bubbles. I also have enlarged the resin flaps since they are 2,5mm too short..

Hi Erik, Is this kit on hold again ? I built the Hobbycraft P-36 A kit recently and I was interested to see what you did with yours. Looks promising !
27. October 2020, 17:15
Erik Leijdens
Hi Boris yes unfortunately this is on hold for a while now. I have to make the cooling flaps on the cowl but they have to be thin and follow the rounding and that's were I suffer a "BSOD" every time I try to make something. So this is on hold until the day I have a sudden flash of inspiration :)

Arjan Ouwendijk
Erik, a little late I know but you made a truly beautiful model....I also like this camouflage. There is however a small mistake in the kit and that is the nose gear leg. Kinetic supplied 2 nose gear legs but only the F-5A leg is correct for that type......the made up CF-5/NF-5 leg is incorrect. Originally the first generation F-5's used the leg that was installed vertical under the nose area and the fork section angles back a few degrees. On the CF-5A and NF-5A they installed a nose leg that had the fork in a straight line with the main leg body but the whole gear was angled forward. This leg was later installed on the second generation F-5 namely the F-5E/F. It had also the hike/de-hike provision built in. I still remember doing retraction tests of a hiked nose landing gear and we always had to watch the retraction sequence closely as sometimes the gear retracted before it was fully de-hiked.....which causes a big mess ofcourse :)
Another thing I'd like to point out is that the leading edge flaps only had 2 positions.......the manoeuvring flaps position was built in on the trailing edge flaps and had 3 positions. I don't know why everyone is always talking about the 3 position leading edge flaps but this is not correct.
Once again, a gorgeous model!!

Regards, Arjan
3. August 2020, 19:48
Erik Leijdens
Hi Arjan! Thanks for your comment! And a nice on too, never noticed that the fork should be in a straight line! Something to keep in mind when building another NF-5A :)
10. August 2020, 20:20
Jos Jansen
Me too Anne, Erik NF-5A is probably one of the most finest Northrop I ever saw...and that's a compliment mate 8). After finishing my F-14, it's NF-5A time...!
