Before I get too far do you guys think this looks like the shovel nose as opposed to the sharp pointed nose for the F5E? It’s not supposed to have that shovel nose but it sure looks like it does in the picture. Maybe it’s just the shadows and change in paint sheen?





Thats one sexy bird.

Yep Ayovan it sure is! And as rare as this scheme seems to be I did manage to find a set of AeroMasks for ot. Excited about that as it would have been days of masking otherwise i fear.


Thanks Anthony! Am working hard to add some color to this post. Stay tuned for sure and thanks again for the encouragement.

Putting some color to my adversary today! This is a custom mix of a yellow from an ‘81 Ford truck and gloss white. 




3 to 4 light coats is covering nicely. In the close up photos the 1:1 scale bird has some serious fading of the yellow, plus some corrosion type patches and strips that I’ll add before i do the other camo colors i think. The strips of primer showing are where the green and brown will go to try and get some of the variation i see in those colors.

Once more into the breach...all the kids were still sleeping at lunch so I ended up with a day off to myself, great modeling time! Finished up the light ghost grey and the gloss black. Now on hiatus until next week as the wife and I are off for our anniversary trip starting tomorrow.

Masked it up and got the 1st camo color down tonight. I mixed 6 parts brown to 1 part red. Off to my 1st show in a year tomorrow, Indianapolis Roscoe Turner IPMS is this weekend. Hoping to find a few things from vendors for the next series of builds. Will get back to this in a few days and start the green :beer4:

All the camo colors are on now and primary painting is all done.
