Kit: 1/144 Revell F-5E Tiger II, modified with Russian weapons. unfortunatly, i only had one R-73 missile left, the rest is reserved for other projects.
decals: 1/144 academy Mig-23

the project was inspired by seeing video and pictures of a Soviet captured F-5E.

Nice work, nils. I like the reporting name "Fishfork". Fits neatly into the current listing of Russian fighters. How someone at NATO arrived at "Fishbed" or "Frogfoot" is anyone's guess. And "Flatpack" should surely have been reserved for the latest Swedish fighter ... :P

Good idea!
It is fun to think that no one has ever made a model of that before.
