The Mexican air force has this great jet on its inventory since 1982. This model depicts the venerable Monogram kit, which to me its very good I bought two kits 4 months ago, one is this F-5 in Mexican Air Force (FAM) markings which come with the kit. This model was easy to build and required minor filling and sanding. Once the construction was completed, I proceeded to paint it using the colors FS34102, FS 34079 and 30279. I used a wrap around scheme because this type is the standard in the FAM.
I didn't want to put the missiles on since the peaceful situation of my country. Once finished....I applied a small coat of dullcote.
