Hi I'm after suggestions for acrylic colour matches for the following F5 paint scheme for the Revell F5 1/144 in Agressor markings, preferably Vallejo or Lifecolour paint numbers if possible please.

I'm guessing they are painted up using current Russian combat colours so any suggestions in this direction very much appreciated, i'm guessing something like a mid blue and eggshell combination?

I've seen that one, and one with sand and brown.

The T-38's out my way are black. Not sure if they use them as aggressors, or not.

Also, not sure why they chose black, but they do stand out in the sky better than the lighter colors, for a small aircraft.

Go to Google Images, and look up Aggressor and Topgun, and I imagine you'll find tons of images for reference.

If you look under Colors & Markings it gives several examples of Aggressor schemes with FS numbers

Let me just say that is an *amazing* job on a 1/144 fighter jet. Unbelievable! check it out:

That model was built by Erik Wauters from Belgium. Here's his website, with many more impressive models: link

Have you tried contacting him to ask what colors he used? erik(dot)wauters(at)telenet(dot)be

That actually looks more like the crazy paint schemes the Cuban DAFAAR uses than anything Russian.
