Here's one I just finished for a GB over on BTS.

Here's what I started with, the Hasagawa 1/72 F-20.

After basic assembly, I cut off part of the wings and added a new trapezoidal wing. Filled in the underside flush with the original wing. This gave me a good solid base for the new wing and I didn't have to mess with the wheel wells or landing gear. I did remember to put plenty of weight in the nose.

All blended in and PSR completed and a coat of MR Surfacer primer.

Finished F-20K in Philippine AF markings.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.


That's looking good, reminds me a little of some FB-22 designs?


Wow! Great F-20XL! :wub:
And thanks for celebrating the Philippines, country from where my wife comes. :thumbsup:

Just what I was thinking too, a superb job there Ed.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)



Nice!!!  I can totally dig it.  :mellow: :mellow:

Really sharp, I like this a lot!  The Philippine AF markings are a great touch!

Best regards,


Definitely reminiscent of the FB-22 designs.  Very nice!!   :thumbsup:
So I got that going for me...which is nice....



- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
