Super - Tiger 1:48 Scale

My last project is the Grumman Super- Tiger.
The plane was a proposal of Grumman to the German airforce and competed against
the F-104 Starfighter - I will eleborate more on that later.
The model is from Stahlhart models and was enlarge from 1:60 to 1:48.

Thumbs up

Interesting little plane.


I got to see it earlier this year at the US Naval aviation museum in Pensacola Florida ( different color scheme ). There is also an example on the aircraft carrier Midway in New York city.

Regarding the model, my only comment is to ditch the petal nose cone and convert it to rounded cones. Or just make a solid nose, shape it, paint it black. Should improve the look. My opinion.

In the past, I used plaster of Paris on top of the petals, then sanded smooth and then paint black.

Look here at my build of an LTV Corsair 2

post # 46 and 47

LTV A-7 Corsair 2

here are the pics of the kit petals

Good luck.

Super -Tiger build diary

Hi Isaac - I tried to take a small sand paper
and then smeared white glue and after dry painted it with matt black. The result is not convincing but better than before. Attaced are some images.
