Post by: Nils on August 12, 2019, 01:58:34 am
repost, as the original post was placed in the wrong forum section  :rolleyes:

this is the first of a series of Area 88 themed models in 1/144 scale.
there are more on the go, starting with another F-5E (original manga/ova version) and F-20 Tigershark.

imalso using new tools and techinques for these builds, including better masking, maskol and airbrushing.

this is the first to be finished, Shin Kazama's F-5E Tiger II from the 2004 Anime.

kit: Revell 1/144 F-5E Tiger II
decals: kit + DIY

That really is nice work, Nils.  The decals seem to have come out nicely.  Iíve had trouble getting the various markings to print nicely, so Iíve redrawn them all as vector graphics and am thinking about trying to get them printed properly. Let me know if youíre interested.  I may do both 1/144 and 1/72.
