Airfix 1/72 F5A Freedom Fighter IIAF

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Here's the old Airfix F5A. It is OOB apart from a vac canopy, my own markings and a ton of filler. Build thread is here. Finished with AK True Metal (which I heartliy recommend) and a mixture of kit and home brew markings:

Well done and classic! Remember this one as a bagged kit and building it in an afternoon.

Davey, if you saw the undercarriage parts you would know why it was wheels up! :)

Sharp looking result from this rather crude kit is quite as awesome as your skill.

Superb job you've done on this old kit. Great finish and terrific display. I remember building this as akid in the 70s. I've always thought the F-5 was a good looking aircraft.
