Fuerza Aerea Mexicana

  Mexico Independence Day 


This is my first model, so it took several years to complete and it is also the first time for me to have a model on ARC. This is the F-5E of the 401 Escuadron de pelea de la Fuerza Aerea Mexicana.

The model came from the old Monogram F-5E kit and the conversion pieces were scratch built following the directions of a friend.   It was painted with Gunze paints and Model Master matt coat.  The decals are from Aztec Models.

The pictures of the model where taken at the local news paper to appear on a special edition celebrating the 100 years of aviation.

Hope you like it.
