I've got to get a copy of that book, one of the birds on the cover is my TA-4J tactical backseat ride at VF-126. Cool!!  Yeah, that back seat is mine!

Wow, I'm jealous. Models will have to do for me. Rest assured some scooters will be part of the squadron.

Finally finished the F-5F. They say the first one is the hardest. Leaving the cockpits open makes for a more dramatic look...

Now onto the F-5E. I would like to do number of these. After the first F-5E will be an F-20 in a fantasy scheme I suppose. 

I would like to do spome A-4's, Kfir, and an F-16, then possibly some foreign nations aircraft. 

I will post the final images of all the completed builds in my first post. Thanks for looking.

Turned out nice.  Great scheme.  I would advise staying away from the ESCI Kfir...it was a bear.  But, given your work on this old Monogram kit, I'd say you can deal with it.  Let's see the rest of your aggressor squadron.

Thanks,

John

Thanks for the kind comments. The idea for this project is to use up all the kits in my stash which includes the Kfir. So I'll just bite the bullet and get'r done....eventually. Big Smile

Since you are doing the ACMI Aggressors, don't forget the Cubic KITS pods. We still gots to track 'em you know.

OH, yeah, and don't forget, on the A-4 / TA-4's, the slats are out when the bird is parked.

Thanks for the reply. I was able to get this weapons set which includes the pods...

Thanks for the heads up on the A4 slats, I did read that in an earlier thread on the A4's.
