1/48 AMT F-5E

Here is a old AMT F-5E in 1/48 scale that I built for the reserve group build.  Not the best model ever made, I used a lot of putty and sandpaper.  The decals are a combination of mostly Twobobs, Leading Edge for the high modex number and a Iraqi flag I had lying about.

The pilot is a X-Hasegawa Tomcat pilot who is now flying for VFC-13.  The stand is from my daughters 1/72 snap together Tomcat.  Paint scheme is mostly a guess.  I worked the paint scheme off one photo I had of the port side of the airframe.
