1/48 Revell Northrop F-5E Tiger II

Gallery Article by Juan Carlos Gómez Y Sarzotti on Feb 10 2021



Here I present my Revell 1/48 scale F-5E Tiger II in an aggressor scheme. The model was built OOB, with no resin or photoetched aftermarket items. I used it mainly to drill my technic on a 3 camo a/c. It has a very good interior but the joint in some places was not so good, for example, between the top and bottom of the fuselage, besides, one of the out wing rails was a little warped. Kit decals were fine, except for 2 or 3 of them, which, once applied, refused to move.

Paints used were from Vallejo, acrylics water based ones, which performed nicely, The model was painted with a cheap chinese airbrush with a 0.2mm needle.

I decided not to weather it, as most of the pics I´ve seen of aggressors F-5´s were in pristine condition. Just a little into the wheel wells with Ammo panel liners. It is a very simple kit, recommended if you want to drill some of your modelling skills or practise new technics.
