    746 Scale Aviation Modeller | August 2010

    S ince the release of AFV Club’s 1/48 F-5E this most attractive fighter has seen a resurgence of interest in the type

    especially in its role as an aggressor aircraft. Twobobs, of course, have been the number one manufacturer for aggressor schemes since their earliest days. Well now we have six more sheets covering nearly every scheme carried by the F-5E in this role. Each is illustrated with four-view colour profiles and the odd colour thumbnail photograph, while a colour guide offers Testors, Xtracrylix, Gunze Sanyo, and Humbrol paints, though you may have to resort to some colour mixing just like the real thing.

    Conclusion My club includes one member who has made a massive number of 1/48 F-5s over the years, based on the old Monogram kit, and I am sure his build schedule for the next year is now going to feature at least a dozen more. For the less devoted these sheets would be a stunner for a club looking for a group display for Telford. .

    Twobobs decals can be obtained online from their web site at www.twobobs.net In the UK Twobobs decals are stocked by Hannants, and of course if you are at the Phoenix show, just stroll over and see them for yourselves.
