This one has been in-work for several years now. Once the F-5E aggressor was done I decided to remove it from the shelf of waiting (no, not doom) and decided it was high time to finish it BEFORE starting another one.

The panel wash and weathering is done...or almost so. Let me know what your thoughts are on it.

Beautiful model, don't get me wrong. But, the tailplanes have dihedral. Not anhedral like on an F-4.

Rest of the model? FABULOUS!!

... makes me want to pull out my Hasegawa kit and get started. There is something about the shape of the slender forward fuselage that really appeals to me.
