Always no time ago I built an ESCI F-5 as a USAF Aggressor.  Then another one came up on eBay with the ground crew set.  Now I wanted the ground crew, but wasn’t so worried about another F5.  And the kit had a vacform diorama base.  But I thought what not build the F5 and isle it on the base as per the box art.

So this is the first & second F5s on the later box

The kit was pretty warped, fairly poor fit, raised surface detail etc

 

This is her heading into the workshop for paint

And finally with the box box for comparison

Not built as a high detail kit, but a tribute to those box art pictures & kits they just don’t make any more.  Hope you like it

Nice, I like that a lot, those Aggressor colour schemes are far more interesting than the Greys of service schemes to my mind & you've done a super job on yours, the dio & presentation by stages is also a bit smart. :thumbsup:
