Hasegawa 1/32 F5E

One of my favorite builds when I was a kid was a 1/72 scale F5E in the aggressor camo scheme.  I've always loved the look of this sleek plane with its many variations of color schemes.  This was the second time I've built this kit and unfortunately, the only offerings in 1/32 scale are these older kits with raised panel lines and lackluster detail.  with that being said, it goes together very well and is a relatively quick build.  Most of my time was spent rescribing the panel lines.  I painted this one up to represent the fictional mig 28 from the movie top gun.  I added a pilot from my spares box, closed up the landing gear bay doors, and put it in an in flight display.  The base is a wood plaque which I painted to mimic riveted sheet metal.
