HISTORY OF THIS AIRCRAFT

The F-5 is a supersonic fighter combining low cost, ease of maintenance and great versatility. More than 2,000 F-5 aircraft have been procured by the USAF for use by allied nations. The F-5, which resembles the USAF Northrop T-38 trainer, is suitable for various types of ground-support and aerial intercept missions, including those which would have to be conducted from sod fields in combat areas.

The F-5 first flew on July 30, 1959, and deliveries to the Tactical Air Command for instructing foreign pilots began in April 1964. Pilots from Iran, South Vietnam, and South Korea were the first to be trained in the F-5, followed by pilots from Norway, Greece, Taiwan, Spain and other Free World nations that have adopted the F-5. A two-place combat trainer version, the F-5B, first flew in February 1964. In 1966-1967, a USAF squadron of F-5s flew combat missions in Southeast Asia for operational evaluation purposes.



THE RARE KIT FROM CLASSIC AIRFRAMES

This is really a very good release from Classic Airframes company. This kit is not available in the market now. It is limited edition, very hard to get it.


Molded in a medium grey plastic, the kit has very nicely done engraved panel lines. As is the norm with most kits of this type, there are ejector pin towers on many of the larger parts that will have to be removed prior to construction, but it is nothing that the experienced builder will have difficulty with. I'm pleased to note that there is no flash and I did not find any sink areas, this in spite of the plastic of some parts being a bit on the thick side. There is a two-piece canopy, also of plastic that is a bit thick, though it also quite clear.

A bag of resin accompanies the kit and that is used for most of the delicate or detail parts. It includes a superbly molded cockpit tub and seat along with exhaust bits, instrument panel, speed brakes and the speed brake well along with a few other interior pieces.
