Call this Freedom Fighter done.
I’ve really enjoyed this kit. It’s not perfectly engineered, but if you are patient, test fit, and make a few adjustments here and there, Kinetic’s 1/48 F-5A goes together very nicely. The end result is, I think, a very good looking model.
I will be building another one of these sometime. The sleek lines of this jet just really speak to me, in the same way the Spitfire’s shape does when it comes to piston engined fighters.
