And since I got the magazine out here's a scan of the FAB page on the F-5 feature: (Click to enlarge)

Posted Image

Note that on the leading edges of the fins of the camouflaged aircraft (same areas as in the illustration) the faded dark green colour (FS34079) looks like grey.

Maybe the illustrator thought it was an extra colour??? :hmmm:



It's a great photo. Here we can see the SEA scheme. Dark green looks like grey. The illustrator is very wrong.

Great photo...

Yes, that's the chap. And it's quite possible that it is indeed faded green rather than true grey. But I live in hope ...



Pigsty, F5E from 1/1 GAV - Senta Pua are SEA scheme.

This profile posted in magazine is wrong and the other photo can confirme this information.

That's what I was thinking too. An unusual result, as Keith Fretwell was normally a peerless illustrator. Still, adding Brazilian markings to anything will improve it, so I'll press on.
