Stunning absolutely a perfect Double build !
Like it a lot!

Thank you very much, I highly appreciate all of your comments!
@Konrad: this should have been a triple build in fact, three times the same airframe serial. Soon I noticed that the 3rd kit (T-38C from Trumpeter) does not match the WP kits. So I ordered a WP T-38c, will be a upcoming project.

Konrad Limmer
Cool, looking forward to it !
I've build the Black one Holloman AirBase also from WP.

Very interesting. Do you use a conversion kit for the reconaissance version?
11. January, 07:04
Thomas T
Hi Norbert. Yes. I'll use the CMK 4399, which was introduced in 2020. The conversion was created for the Tamiya kit, however it seems to fit almost perfectly on the Hasegawa.

Decals from? and you need a withe 80
12. January, 13:00
Thomas T
Hi Steffen.
There are two different machines known. The first is a documented F-5A-1 (based on a P-38H I believe), this is the one you talk about. St Ex flew the machine in Tunisia in 1943, quite a lot of pictures can be found of this aircraft, the serial number is unknown (to me).
The other one is a F-5B-1, based on a P-38J (the one with the vertical air inlets), this is the aircraft he was shot down on July 31st 1944. This aircraft had the serial Nr 42-68223, very few information is available on this machine. This is the one I am building right now, the F5-A-1 is due for another project.
For markings you have following options:
F-5A-1, decals are included in the CMK set (with the white 80)
F-5A-1 and F-5B-1 a decal sheet from Third group (1998) was available, maybe with some luck you can get a sheet on the big auction house with 'e'
For both: create your own and print or let print
For both: create masks, cut with a cutting plotter and apply the markings with the airbrush.
If you need profiles etc, PM me, I'm happy to help :)

Nice work on the big canopy clear part. When I look at sprue parts for this type of model in kits, the big canopy part always looks weird to me, as if the framing is molded wrong. Maybe I am imagining that, but somehow that one part always looks weird to me when looking at model kits of this jet.

Wow, I missed this one Thomas! Fantastic work as usual my friend! That paint is immaculate! Simply perfect...
8. May 2019, 15:03
Thomas T
Thanks for your kind words, they make me a bit shy.
@Nigel: My aim is to have alternative color schemes im my collection, moreover I prefer this scheme to the standard. 'Föifer und Weggli' situation (sorry, Swiss German saying) :P
@Treehugger: The shape of the moulded cord is basically correct, compared to the original the look in the sprue part is a bit strange, I agree. On the other hand, the vynil cords are a bit too prominent, however, I prefer that over the standard look. Additionally it is a challenge to place the vynil cords into the canopy.
@Michael: By far not perfect, however I can see progress in my work :)

Well done early marking of a swiss air force hawk. As a proposal: a slight aging would make the step behind the cockpit less evident.
