I like them both but the camo on the Viggen does look very good, both are gorgeous things! :wub:

Well, I couldn't meet the deadline - but I got this far. Correcting paint issues and troubleshooting took too much time  :banghead: :






I'll keep at it and it'll be done soon.

Well you're getting two great-looking models out of it , so it's still a win. :thumbsup:

Well guys, thanks for the encouragement. The JA-37ST will have to go back to the paintshop. I'm just not happy with it.

On the other hand, the F-20S is finally done. I have a club meeting today, so please excuse the car it's on and the office buildings in the background. So in this reality Singapore liked the F-20 enough to fund partial development and got the first batches to replace their F-5s (which they sold to Thailand and the Phillipines), and bought the F-16 anyway. The F-20's fast scramble time, small size and similarity to the F-5 made it ideal for deploying rapidly from highway strips (awesome video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBMD4QTSyqM <-HERE!)

Anyway I've built it for a mid-2000's model, with AMRAAM capability. Pretty much what the current F-5S standards are. Nicked the refuelling probe from a Hobbyboss F-5, AMRAAMs and Sidewinder rails from an Italeri F-16, and Sidewinders from the Revell Typhoon which I'm currently battling. I'll take better pictures when I'm home and have time to clear a space.

I now the deadline is passed but it's good to see a build concluded through this thread.  Had been toying with moving my build to one of the regular threads but no, I'll keep it here.

Very pretty F-20, BTW (:thumbsup:), looking forward to the Viggen.

I think it's well known I'm not a fan of this family of aircraft but that is one nice model  :bow:

Looks like she's flying low over the Hyundai Sea  :thumbsup:

Great work ST. I love the F-5 and all her family....such a sleek and sexy aeroplane. Great job on this one. Love the updates you've made, and the weapons load looks perfect for a scramble fighter. The hook is a nice touch as well, really brings the underside to life.

 :cheers: :tornado: :wub:
