Thank you guys  :smiley:

For starters we got three CAC CA-30 A/B in RAAF and one in RNZAF service.
Why CA-30?
Because Macchi MB-326 never came to Australia.

Love the idea of the RNZAF one.  I'm sure the Australian production line also gifted some to Papua New Guinea upon their independence in 1975. ;)  Then there was the big sale to India...

For sure  ;)


And of course, the Navy had several squadrons equipped with the B model

Love the PNGDF version ... especially how you've expanded the tail marking into a full-width banner. Very clever  :smiley:

One could probably use these 1/72 decals to do a 1/48 version of the PNGDF F-5:

The Indian Air Force and Romanian Air Force markings fit surprisingly well to the F-5s, I really like them! ;)

You know, I don't think I've ever envisaged a Finnish F-5E Tiger II before, but it makes sense when I saw your art work! :-*

Wow, Alex, you've been busy cranking out some really interesting artwork!  The drone aircraft look great (actually improves the lines of the MiG-29, I think)!
