Now that I get used a bit into building scale models again, I have some What-if planes on my schedule.

"Live" building progress can always be seen on my Scale Model Cam http://www.german-navy.de/webcam/scale.html (Some none what-ifs might be there as well and it could be dark there when we have night in Germany  ;D)




Here is the current one, a Northrop F-5, used by a what-if customer.

The kit I want to use is 1/72 by PM-Models, a very basic one. But I want to try a camo technique for it, so a basic kit is ok for it.

Here is the kit I use for it:

I have a free day today, so instead of thinking in the office, I can do a bit work on the F-5.



It looks like a F-5 - not surprising. As its a very basic kit, most parts are fit together, now I am sanding and sanding to close all gaps. Camo painting will be next.

Two of the three green camo color are now airbrushed, waiting for the thrid color to arrive next week.

I hope the third color will be bright pink or yellow, to be fully what-if... ;)

The three camo colors are now painted - sorry, no pink or yellow (hmm, but yellow gave me another idea for something else....)
The color scheme should be like the Luftwaffe "Norm 83" - so this plane will be one of the early 1980s.


Hope that the pic is not too dark this time.

It needs some additional color work at the nose and then landing gear and weapons can be fitted.

Most of the basic paint job is now done, and the F-5 stands on its own legs.



This will get a Luftwaffe F-5, equipped for CAS, set in the early 1980s.

Everything is made so far, the Luftwaffe F-5 is now waiting for the glossy finish, decals and the final overall finsih.



Have to work out the story behind it now....

You could say it was Provided to the Luftwaffe by a Concerned Germany Citizen with Enough money to Try and Support Germany by giving it a Plane Well Suited to CAS Duties! does that Help? Keep up the Great Work :thumbsup: :cheers: :cheers: Dan

I'm not a fan of the F5 or F20 but it's looking good in that Scheme

Nicely done. What is the white panel behind the cockpit?

As for the backstory, maybe the Germans decided to go with F-5 instead of Starfighter when the Lockheed bribery came to light?

That's looking good :thumbsup:
 and If they'd ordered the Two seat version (T-38)
as well for the O.C.U. They might have been tempted to form an Aerobatic team,
Called..... The Donnervögel  ;D

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

Well, in real-life, the Luftwaffe own several T-38s. Altough they are flying with American markings, those planes are owned by the Luftwaffe and used for jet pilot training of Luftwaffe pilots in the USA.

While searching for some other model parts, I run accross this thing, which is waiting to be completed for several years now:



This is a old Revell kit, I wonder what to do from it ...
