Hello,

 

Here's my just finished 1/72 Italeri SF-5B. I was looking through the stash after my previous build, a grey Harrier GR.7, and thought this would be a nice colourful change. The kit does offer a Spanish version out of the box, but the decals didn't look right to me, so I ordered an aftermarket sheet from Series Españolas. These were much better, and worked very well. I painted the model with Vallejo Metal Color and some Tamiya black. Overall, it was a fun build, with only the canopy actuators being a bit fiddly.

Looks great!

 

I agree that this is a very good kit to build. Wish I had more of them.

A very nice twin seater, Pete. I think the twin seat F-5 is really cute :)

Hi Creepy Pete.


You have reproduced the metallic paint very well, since in reality the Spanish airplanes carried a metallic paint and were not in NMF.
I remember seeing them often flying over my city as a child, coming from the base of Morón de la Frontera.

Very good job !!!

 

Regards.

Not a well known subject to me, but it is a very pretty plane to look at.

Lovely SF-5B, I do like these Italeri kits.

Which Metal Color shade did you use as I think it looks superb.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

 

@Lightningboy2000, I used Vallejo 77.701 Aluminium.

Cheers, I recently visited a shop in Norwich & just purchased what they had in stock so hopefully that was one of them.
