    Looking at Mr. Bizer designs I decided to have a go at doing one myself.
    Having solved the problem with nose-cones and giving models a "cartoonish" look he inspired me to start this project.

    I'm starting with these drawings :

    After some copy-paste and some drawing in paint :

    The first results :

    This is what I have so far, I still have to "fine-tune" some parts and then start on painting the model.

    This is what I have in mind :

    It's a Gatekeeper at Gilze-Rijen (Netherlands), although it has the number K-3066 it is original the K-3003.
    Having seen these planes a lot as a kid it is my favorite and there are not so much models around.

    I'm going to have a busy weekend so updates will follow after...:thumb:

    Thanks Dragos !

    I've been following you guys silently for some time now... sign1

    I love what Paragon does and I also have seen your home-page :thumb:

    Buying new cartridges for my printer broke the silense and got me back in bussiness !

    (btw, building paragons f-86 sabre right now :twisted: )

    O, and I'll be sure to make a uncoloured version for you so you can paint it anyway you like ! :mrgreen:

    Yes, it will be a free model and I will include a white version.
    I'm planning on starting a website for my models, but I have to get into that...

    Ok, the weekend is over so it's back to work !

    Step 1:

    I rotated the sideview in order to connect it with the topview :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Step 2 :

    The intakes, copied from the sideview :

    [​IMG]

    Step 3:

    The wings, the most easy part I guess :

    [​IMG]

    Step 4:

    "Cleaning" the parts panel lines, the picture on the right is the bottomview and will only be used a reference for the panel lines

    Triop,

    Maybe you could separate the windshield-cockpit and fuselage top extension from the lower-main fuselage and give the former part a more round shape to achieve even better result in realism for the final model. Just a suggestion....

    I've been thinking about it, and I'm working on it :

    [​IMG]

    Don't know what to do about it yet....

    I've been building test version #4 today...and it "crashed" during the photo session ........wall1 :cry:

    [​IMG]

    The parts almost fits perfect now and the coloring needs some changes.

    [​IMG]

    Btw, the photo session was a complete disaster :

    I don't have more time this week, so I think the next update will be in/after the weekend.

    (............did anybody noticed that the color-scheme on the original photo is inverted ????....................:mrgreen:

    Ok, next update :

    I've made some changes in the model and made a different version.
    All I need to do now is re-draw the nosegear and then it is ready for upload.
    (I hope to do that before friday) :mrgreen:

    With Triop's permission I have re-coloured his F-5 in line with the Swiss Air Force "Patrouille Suisse".

    Simple colour design but very effective.

    DSCF1793.jpg

    DSCF1794.jpg

    DSCF1792.jpg

    I have kept the detail very very small and only used 4 colours, red, white, blue and grey.

    I have made some more adjustments since this build which should improve the back end.

    Cheers JTF
