Hello HundertDampf and Tango,


Thanks a lot for the good infos and beautiful pictures!

I worked on it this afternoon and the skin is still in WIP...

(I see now, there is still a lot of work!) :D


If you have any comments, do not hesitate to let me know...

After the loss of our friend Kizir_77 (RIP buddy) I will continue the work on our Swiss Air Force F-5E Tiger skins.


My bucket list

  • Skins in 4K instead of 2K
  • Difference between the early scheme (1976 to ~1998 ) and the later scheme (~1998 - current)
  • Custom weapon and fuel tank skins per skin


The early paint scheme was similar to the USAF F-15’s of the time. The original colors are F9453 Medium Grey and F9452 Light Grey, produced by the company Walter Mäder AG in Switzerland. With the introduction of the F/A18 Hornet in 1998, the colors were harmonized with FS 36320 Dark Ghost Grey and FS 36375 Light Ghost Grey.


Attached you'll find a WIP of two brand new 4K skins. The plane in front is the current scheme, while the plane in the back is the early scheme.

Top notch work! Can't wait to have them :thumbup:


Thanks :thumbup:


In the meantime I finished the custom AIM-9B missile so it can show the early swiss CATM-9 colors together with J-3001 from 1979. It was one of Northrop built Tigers for Switzerland.

How are the skins coming along?


Also..do you plan on doing the yellow edge on the canopy frames as per photo?


They are coming along good but I have to finish the whole pack before releasing it. Otherwise some skins will look very bad because they are cross-linked.


Unfortunately I don't find a close up shot of the canopy frame.
