1/48,Monogram F-5E Bahrain Air Force, Gulf War
Though not much has been mentioned in what capacity that the Bahrain Amiri Air Force contributed during the Gulf War. Flying F-5E’s and F-16’s. Starting with defensive operations on the 25th of January and then launching offensive operations the following day. Choosing Monograms F-5E to represent one of the Bahraini Tiger II’s. Still a nice kit and the only kit of the F-5E at the time of this build for many years. Building this in a simple scheme of 36375 Lt Ghost Grey with a nose cone of Dk Gull Grey. Could not find the True details cockpit set, so accept for the decals, it is all Monogram. Typical mission load Mk.82 500lb bombs and AIM 9P sidewinders. Escorted by the F-16s. Flying out of Shaikh Isa AB. One of my 48th contigent of my coalition Desert Storm participants that I have built so far, not as many in this scale built compare to my 72nd collection. Decal set came from Carpena #48-25.
Thanks for viewing.
