1/48 F-20A Tigershark (Freedom Models) WIP
Posted by Wolfman_63 on Thursday, June 07, 2018 3:53 PM

This is the Freedom Models 1/48 scale F-20A Tigershark. Built by Northrop (before they became Northrop Grumman). I started on the cockpit. The dash board was painted to match photos of the actual aircraft. To create the realistic multi-function displays I painted them a chrome silver and use Tamiya clear green on top. The screens look like real displays as the light reflects light from different angles.

Great job on the cockpit so far!  With this plane anything you can do to pep it up is a good thing, that 2 tone gray paint is a killer.   I did the same thing to my cockpit.  I did this Hasegawa 1/72 version about 3 years ago.

Continuing work on the 1/48 Freedom Models F-20A. Cockpit installed, exhaust installed, and now assembling the fuselage. The fit of the parts is very good. Just had a small section on the spine that needed a little putty. Also added a little weight to the nose to keep it from being tail heavy. More photos at

Looking great! Love the look of the F-5 series. It is too bad the Tigershark was never adopted by anyone. Keep it up!

Continuing the work on the Freedom Models 1/48 scale F-20A Tigershark. Fuselage assembled, painted, and decals applied. Working on the missiles and the canopy details now. Getting close to completion. All the build photos are on my blog at https://davidsscalemodels.com/build-log/1-48-f-20a-tigershark/

The Freedom Models F-20A Tigershark in Prototype 2 scheme is now complete! This was a fun kit to build. Instructions have some minor issues but not bad. Also am using a different camera so the completed photos represent the color much better and the photos look better.
You can see all the completed photos in my blog gallery: https://davidsscalemodels.com/gallery/1-48-f-20a-tigershark/
