Jos Jansen Great choice, and yeah you did it right my friend... :)

Michael Hickey You know it's almost identical as Augie's, colours, AB, time period, I didn't realize. Would you like me to pick something else?

Jos Jansen It is not a competition Michael, if this is your personal choice then that is great. The point is that we all do a fantastic GB and learn from each other again through various tips & tricks. It is nice to see how everyone gets excited, apparently this topic appeals to a lot of people. Your F-5 will be a gem, just like that of Augie ... :)

Michael Hickey Thanks for the impute fellas, I'll keep this, should be fun spraying that scheme. :)

Michael Hickey I was also thinking of doing an F-5 from VFA-111 Sundowners, but I don't have an "N" variant.
9. August 2019 at 12:21:34

Augie Mike, I have no issue you doing 32, she's in what was called "new blue" 35 is a little special to me as I got to sit in her so I am planning this GB as an excuse to rebuild 35 to replace my monogram one. She's in whats called "Grape" The other I was planning is 56 which is in "Snake"

Michael Hickey Coool, getting to sit in aircraft 35, I plan later on doing one in Lizard and I need to do this one again as I sold her a while ago. Northrop F-5N Tiger II VFC-111 Sundowners | Project by mikestomcat (1:48)

Michael Hickey Thanks Cliffy, you joining in the GB?
9. August 2019 at 21:44:11
Clifford Keesler I don't have any F-5's. I will look and see what I can find. I have plenty of decals for aggressor F-5's I have the blue-gray Saint's sheet and the F-5 aggressor sheet from the movie Top Gun.
9. August 2019 at 21:49:45
Daniel well...I'd really like to see a MiG-28 added to the list :)
9. August 2019 at 21:53:19
Clifford Keesler I have one that is already built. But I may dig up another one, will see what I can come up with.
9. August 2019 at 21:57:30
Augie funky guys :)
9. August 2019 at 22:24:35
Clifford Keesler How does a twin seat Mig-28 sound?. I just bought a Fujumi F-5.
9. August 2019 at 22:51:55
Clifford Keesler A twin seat F-5 that is.
9. August 2019 at 22:52:50
Daniel MiG-28UB? sounds great to me :D
9. August 2019 at 22:55:05
Nathan Dempsey Great subject Michael. All these aggressor builds are going to be awesome! I don't know how I'm going to keep track of them all...
9. August 2019 at 23:00:33
Clifford Keesler Well I guess mine will be Black. LOL.
9. August 2019 at 23:03:03
Michael Hickey This is going to be one massive GB full of aggressor schemes. :)
10. August 2019 at 00:59:02
Clifford Keesler I will be building 2. An F-5B and a F-5E, that is if I can scratch build a cockpit for the "B" which I found out after I ordered it has no cockpit. I have some left over parts from my T-38 build, seats and IP decals.

Maciej Bellos Following!
10. August 2019 at 05:51:38
Michael Hickey That sounds awesome Cliffy, welcome Maciej. If all goes well with this one I may build an F/a-18 Hornet as well. :S
11. August 2019 at 03:32:47
Clifford Keesler Now why did you have to say that, I have a bee's nest of Hornets. Now you just gave me an excuse to build one of them. Darn you. LOL.
13. August 2019 at 00:22:32

14. August 2019 at 04:49:50
Clifford Keesler Yes Michael, you have me digging through all my "Aggressor" decals. So many choices F-5, T-38, F-18, F-16, F-15. Damn how's a guy supposed to decide. LOL.
15. August 2019 at 01:25:17
Maciej Bellos So Cliff, you have kinda the same problem as women have with shoes... LOL
15. August 2019 at 10:27:06

15. August 2019 at 11:41:50
