    I just had to get away from my Brewster Buffalo project for a while...

    The link I've got from Furman for this free F-5 made me do it... :twisted:

    I reduced the size to (give and take...) 1/144 and started cutting :-D

    Ok...it's pretty ugly, but I wanted to see it finished before the end of the evening :roll:

    I also used very thick paper and didn't bother to spend time making gluestrips myself...

    I must say the parts all fit perfectly :)

    I don't like the bottom and the color scheme that much but I must say this is a very nice kit.
    Although some landing gear would be nice...:roll:

    I'm pretty sure I'll be building this model again with some more patience...O btw...volunteers for a re-paint ? :-D

    ...Back to my Brewster Buffalo...
