For now,

want to finish plane, cockpit I hope later.

 

Re Tigershark, it should not be much of change, only it is hard to decide which one in particular (think whole production was around 10)?

 

 

 

saw this in SHQ

I'd like to know what kind of mission it was dedicated to, the ac performances. And also if it was appreciated or not by the pilots.

 

I always thought this is a nice little fighter, but never known anything about it.

here are a few sites to look at

 

The Northrop F-5 was one of the most successful export products of the US aircraft industry. Although it did not have the performance of some of its more-costly contemporaries, it was reliable, easy to maintain, and relatively inexpensive. It served only in relatively small numbers with the United States armed forces, first as a trial with the USAF in Vietnam and then later as an adversary aircraft with the USAF, Navy, and Marine Corps.

If I remember correct the T-38 Talon trainer was based on the F-5 (or the other way around) and a lot of pilots got trained on the T-38.

I see a couple of them flying around my house all the time and IMHO it was an underrated aircraft.

I am anxiously waiting for the model.

Pasko, I sure hope you continue to work on the F5. Really nice work you're doing.

 

 

Thanks Ranger! I'm a big fan of the F5, especially the Fighter Weapons School versions. Your post has the best site I've seen for F5 history.
