1/72 Italeri F-5E Swiss Tiger 

by Bill Bunting



This is the Italeri kit with the kit decals.  I built it for the ARC Tigermeet group build a couple of years ago.  It is 'out of the box'.  The paints were a combination of Tamiya and Gunze acrylics and Testor's 'Burnt Iron' for the jet exhaust area.

The paint scheme is not as complicated as it looks at first.  It's yellow over white and the rest is decals.  the kit decals were excellent to use and settled well using "Mr Mark Softer".  This was a joy to build and it really stands out on the shelf.
