Getting there. Got the painting and decals on. Just need to the small stuff now. Finish the base and unmask the canopies, etc.

I'm very interested in the Wolfpack T-38 because I've ordered the Holloman one.
18. September 2014, 19:05
Geoff Murphy
These are T-38, I believe they pre-date the F-5, but they are of the same lineage.
19. September 2014, 04:19
Geoff Murphy
The Wolfpack provides the best surface detail overall of the 3 kits. Cockpit is very good. There is some seam work along the rear fuselage around the horizontal stabs on all three kits. The intakes also have some seam issues. I am not a super detailer, I am quite happy if I can get a good paint job on the model.

Geoff, wonderful work there. I especially like the way you displayed them in formation. My painting skills are lacking so I am afraid to paint the crew figures, but I really like your pilots. It makes the diorama come to life. Show us more. R/ Dutch

Aris aka Amen
Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful! Thats the way i want to pose several models too. Model work looks nice too! I want to build a black T-38A, one of the escorts of F-117. Regarding the decal quality and accuracy, which is better? Wolfpack or Trumpeter?
24. August 2018, 22:05
Aris aka Amen
Another question, is trumpeter's front fuselage and canopy a little bit bigger? Or is the photo?
24. August 2018, 22:10
Geoff Murphy
The Wolfpack version is probably the best all around. The Trumpeter kit does have some dimension issues that other have pointed out. It doesn't bother me.

Thanks Clifford, it was a nice kit to build. Although it was not falling together I'm still very happy with it. It was the first time I have build a "modern" jet instead of a ww2 aircraft.

In order nearest to farthest: Sword, Wolfpack, Trumpeter. So far they have required some filling and sanding, but that is probably due to the fact that they will be all closed up so getting the gears doors smooth has been a trouble spot. The Trumpeter kit is a bit longer but you wont notice unless you set them side by side.
6. August 2014, 13:25
Erik Leijdens
Hi Geoff, nice project you have there. What kind of c/s are you making? Three similar ones or al different? I'm also building the Wolfpack Talon, a very nice kit to build. Succes with your Talon threesome!
14. August 2014, 07:02

I have yet to design a display stand. They are all going to mounted on one stand, each mounted a little different from the other for visual interest. Getting ready to start working on the pilots. Robbed 6 guys from some Hasegawa and Academy F-4s.

Color schemes are going to be possibly all 3 white, or possibly 1 in Thunderbird markings.

My father flew these in the 70's - 80's as an IP/Maint pilot. I have the kit but my hope is to get the tail codes and insignia correct. Will need help with that I think.
