Alconbury F-5E

Finished this one last night. AFV F-5E built OOB except for the resin seat. Decals are from TwoBobs and I used Bombshell Brew paints.

  1. Nice job...I like that. Are those paints airbrush-ready?

  2. they are, my friend Lewis Akers started the line back in June. He is still in the process of developing more colors that he'll add to the list as he goes. I have not had to thin any of the colors yet and have been using a .3 needle on my airbrush. I have decided that they are now my go to paints. You can check them out here

  3. Great work! always nice to see an F-5, Airbrush ready paints? Interesting.

  4. That is a great looking F-5. The aggressor schemes have always been a favorite of mine. Looks like a good line of paints too. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Very nice indeed Lloyd - how did the AFV kit go together?

    • they go together quite well, this is my 4th or 5th one to build over the years, the only tricky part that I encounter is usually the fit around the gun bay doors

  6. Very nice! Love the aggressor schemes, and in fact want to do a 1/72 Sundowners aggressor F-5 but can't find the decals. I have a friend with the 1/48 scale decal set for his F-5, and I'm looking to scale it down and try to make it work with either home made decals or paint masks...

  7. A very nice build in an attractive scheme.

  8. Nice build Lloyd, great colours.
