1/72 SF-5B, Ejército del Aire

Recommended Posts



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.










Thanks for looking, I hope you like it.

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 !!!

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.
