Before the twin-boom F-5OV came to life (and to tremendous export success ;) ), the tailless XF-5V was rejected because not stable enough: :-\

Thanks!
Well, if I had known I would truncate that much the F-5 basis... I could have made it twin...

Thanks to paint, the grey & dirty-white compound is becoming one...
Happy new year to everyone!

Thanks!
(Maybe I should explain the color I chose... Usually I paint all my models sky blue with enamel paint, cleaning brush with white spirit (I had a little pot of it remaining), but my 7 year old son did hurt the white spirit pot not saying it and all was gone in the air, smelling bad, before we knew it, so... no more white spirit, no immediate use of enamel paint, so I took a little pot of water based blue given by revell with their 1/144 F-16, and it is a rather dark blue, not US Navy black-blue of the 1940s but a little dark, yes. This is not a full decision of myself but the result of family "adventures"...)

The tiny Tigco seems finished (according to my poor standards), just remains the Bronger to be done. For this one I will have a hard time with the thermoformed canopy, even if 2 copies are included, and maybe I will replace it with putty and black paint (requiring sky-blue background again, white spirit again...)

After the Tigco, the little Bronger is taking shape, not exactly as planned...

The Tigco and now Bronger are now finished (my way) ;)
I am glad the thermoformed canopy handling was not a complete failure.
