Trumpeter is to release a 1/48th Northrop T-38A Talon kit in January 2014 - ref.2852. Source: http://www.cybermodeler.com/special/2012_acft_scale.shtml V.P.
Finally completed this Trumpeter 1/48th Northrop T-38C Talon which I started end last year as part of the F-5 Group Build. She is marked as 67-14955 operated by the 25th Flying Training Squadron 'Shooters', 71st Training Wing, at Vance Air Force Base, Oklahoma. Built OOB including decals, main colours using Humbrol enamels and sealed with Humbrol enamel varnish from a rattlecan. The kit was a pleasant build and didn't need too much filler. The paint went on well using an air brush however my masking could have been better especially the fuselage forward of the tail fin and the canopies.
Count me in with the 1/48th Trumpeter T-38C Talon II. Obligatory box top and sprues shot, I have already dusted all the parts with Halfords grey primer. I do like Northrop's twin seater and I think that the Talon looks much more graceful than the F-5 fighter types. I am looking for a simple and quick out-of-the-box build, I took this photo from outside Vance AFB near Enid, OK on 11th November 2006, she was T-38C 67-14829 operated by the 71st FTW and this is the colour scheme and markings I will be using.

T-38C Talon 1:48 Trumpeter Stemming from the light fighter programme that gave us the F-5 Freedom Fighter, the T-38 is an updated and upgraded version of the F-5A, which has seen a great deal of service with the air forces of the world due to its low running costs, supersonic abilities and interoperability with Allies flying the same airframe. The primary role for the Talon and Talon II is that of supersonic trainer, but it is also capable of assuming the light fighter role, as well as the chase plane role that it performs for NASA to this day. The T-38C is a further upgraded airframe t
