SMM was present at the event to render assistance to HHQ for the 1st of many F-5 Family group builds in the aim to collect the biggest collection of F-5s in any 1 show.
11 new entries entered the fray in this session with at least another 10 still simmering in the pot and yet to grace the public's eye. The planes were from a variety of national service and ranged from 1/72 to 1/32 in scale.
Amongst the attendees Abdullah 'Blackheart' Hamzah aka Brushtip, Harman Zulkifli, Azlan Diver, John Lee,....

A small prize ceremony was held to give recognition to good work by participating modellers which included some fantastic TUDM builds by Aidy Abdullah, an opened bird by Blackheart, a very well rendered US navy plane by Chan, as well as the ever consistent fare by ye ole faithful Allan Chew. It was also great for members to re-mingle in this cosy gathering of F-5 enthusiasts.
