F-5F front view.

The light grey F-5F  ( 5410 ) that is seen in the bulk of the photos in this article is in the Republic of China air force ( RoCAF ) roundel and air superiority scheme.

The Republic of China Air Force (RoCAF) is the largest Northrop F-5EF TigerII user around the world in the `80-`90, totally 7 airforce wings consisted.

The AIDC has produced 242 Es model and 66 Fs model under license with the
Northrop, as this inspire me to build F-5 in RoCAF camo scheme, this is only one of hundred models in my collection. 

 

F-20 and KKa Hawk 81 ( P-40B ) of AVG!
