  1. Thanks Diego, just what i needed

    Can I assume that when the F-5E carried 4 X Bl.755, 4 X BLU 27 or 4 X snakeeye, this mean short range

    sortie ???


    Well, if looking at standard IRIAF warloads, you have several options here:

    - 2 Sidewinders always on wing-tip pylons,

    - air-to-ground: four Mk.82s with Snakeye retarding fins (one under each wing pylon),

    - anti-armor: two or four BL.755s of British origin (one under each wing pylon),

    - anti-personnel: two or four BLU-27 napalm-filled fire bombs ( one under each wing pylon ) were also used extensively and with big success,

    - sometimes 70mm rocket pods were also used, but apparently not very often.

    - the underfuselage fuel tank was practically always carried, due to the lack of IFR capability.



  2. What a beuty

    Where did you find the info about BLU 27 napalm?, is that from hard fact or just

    "modellers creativity" ?

    If you have any pictures please post

    I have been looking for a long time for info about the weapons loads Iranian and Saudi F-5E carried

    in combat.

    I wanne go out and buy a AFC club F-5E


  3. When airbrushing with extra color I put the model in a clean "smart box", tose plastic containers that have a clip-on lid, that way dust i keept out when it is drying, i take a little bit longer to dry, but is worth the nice clean paintjob
