I built this model
over 15 years ago...
This is an old Academy 1/48 scale(?) copied from the Fujimi 1/50 scale kit! I managed to replace the canopy and the cockpit tub from the
Monogram F-5F, the decals from a Super Scale sheet for international
F-5's. I used MM paints with FS color for SEA camouflage pattern. The kit is very basic, but Academy did a good thing, it came with recessed panel
lines! Weathering was done with color pencils and some silver metallic paint brushed on the
This F-5B with VNAF color in the period of late 1960's the role for this
aircraft was used on that time including a "check out bird" for the
fresh pilots, a fast FAC, an Air Combat Command...or even an escort along with
the RF-5A reconnaissance mission!
I hope you like it!
