That's an absolutely superb shot. I have a library of real F-20 pics but I haven't seen that one before.

Cheers. Paddy.

I DUNNO, It's a pretty hot looking plane LEE.

What covering material did you use?

Cheers. Patrick.

Why thank-you Patrick!

I used the tape that comes in the kit. Polyproplene tape i think.
The fuse needed two layers to darken the red tape so that there was very little colour variation.

Patrick... may I just send my planes over to you to build.... Jeez what nice work!!!!!

Guillaume... The F5 is quite a bit different animal from the F20. There are similarities, but the F20 is really special. It would be cool for you to start a new thread though. Just my opinion.

Attached are a couple of pics of my F20-60 Dave Garwood shot at the 2003 PSS fest and they got into Model Airplane news... that was cool....

Patrick,

Thanks, I was going to paint the Solartex, but it did look good in white... So, my feeling is, if they'd been manufactured NASA would have had some white ones...

You are right Steve.

BTW I am going to photograph mine again when I have detailed it some more and put the scale Sidewinders on the wingtips.

When the "Short Kit" arrived and I had glued the pieces together, I thoroughly cut and sanded them, then sliced them down the middle in order to arrange all the electronic gubbins inside.





Unfortunately I never took a shot of the halves with the stuff inside.

Oh Well!!! Can't win em all!!

Cheers. Patrick.
