  1. T-38A operated by the 6512th Test Squadron, 6510th Test Wing, Air Force Flight Test Center, Edwards AFB. T-38s were used mostly as safety/photo chase for F-15 and F-16 test missions. Sometimes used as radar targets for airborne radar test missions. December 1983 January 1985 May 1985 February 1989 I really do wish someone would do a real T-38A/C in 1/72 scale. Hasegawa and other have marketed F-5Bs as T-38s. The Sword T-38 is close, but still has some F-5 details. Thanks for looking, Sven
  2. My first completion of 2019. The Wolfpack T-38A Talon completed as an aircraft of the 64 FWS, 57 FWW in 1975. In the early days of DACT, the 57 FWW used the Talon to simulate early Soviet jets like the Mig-17 and to a lesser extent Mig 21. The decals came from Caracel. As usual with me, a couple of mess ups. Caracel note this as an AT-38. In effect, the only real difference in this scale would be a Gunsight. I have a few decent pictures of the T-38A in this scheme, including one of this very aircraft. For some reason, in my head, I got them mixed up and referenced a different aircraft and believed that the one I was modelling was a standard T-38A. In fact it looks on closer inspection that Caracel were right. oh well - no gunsight on mine! The Wolfpack kit is not too bad but is another of those good in parts efforts - fit is generally OK but the surface detail is very fine and runs out to nothing in places. One tip if you want this kit is to go for the 'Holloman AFB" boxing which includes a few extra goodies in PE, resin seats and metal pitot which are all excellent. I did use part of an Eduard set which I was given for the cockpit. The Caracel decals worked with no problem but I do have a couple of issues - why provide decals for an aircraft that no kit exists (without conversion) - then I wouldn't have been so confused and I believe they based the decals on an early scheme which had no names on the canopy rail and no 57FWW badge on the intake - bothe of which appeared later. Anyway - it is what it is. I hope you like it. Cheers Malcolm
  3. T-38A 65-10363 of Detachment 6, Air Force Logistics Command. On the Edwards AFB transient ramp, November 1981. Det 6 was responsible for depot maintenance on SR-71s. Based at Air Force Plant 42, Palmdale California. This Talon was used as a hack and safety chase aircraft. Fündekals made a sheet on NASA T-38s in 1/48 scale that included this scheme even though it is an ex-NASA jet. Thanks for looking, Sven
  4. T-38A 68-8158, operated by the 6512th Test Squadron, 6510th Test Wing, Air Force Flight Test Center, Edwards AFB. Formation proficiency mission, August 1984. Modified downwind, extending for a formation landing. Edwards main base below. On approach to landing over the dry lake. Formation landing. May 1985. Air Force Systems Command (AFSC) shield added on the tail. '158 as the Test Center Commander's bird, Brig Gen Roy D. Bridges - even the equipment storage box is marked - September 1992. Air Force Logistics Command and AFSC had just merged to form Air Force Materiel Command, the shield that now appears on the tail. In another month or so, the USAF Chief of Staff wanted all 4-digit unit designations abolished, so the 6512th Test squadron became the 445th Flight Test Squadron, and the 6510th Test Wing became the 412th Test Wing. Thanks for looking, Sven
  5. Not usually seen outside of the Sacramento, California area, this T-38, USAF s/n 60-0551, belongs to the flight test section of the Sacramento Air Logistics Center (SM-ALC). It's a unique markings make it one that I'd like to replicate if I ever get those Sword T-38s off the Shelf of Doom. Pics taken on the Edwards AFB transient ramp in August 1983. That ventral red stripe runs all the way back to the exhaust fairing. As the tail logo indicates, the SM-ALC flight test unit concerned itself with F-111 testing, Sacramento being the USAF Logistics Center for the F-111. The 2874th Test Squadron (later the 337th Test Squadron) also operated F-111s 67-0050 and 68-0175 in standard camouflage with similar tail marking. Thanks for looking, Sven
  6. Hi Guys, While working on my P-51´s I thought I need something different and I started to paint the superb Academy F-4 pilots. Looking thru my stash, my eyes spotted the nice looking T-38A from Trumpeter in 1/48. It took only a few seconds to check the fit of the two guys in the new cockpit. A new projekt was born! More pictures can be found here: http://petesmancave.blogspot.de/p/trumpeter-t-38a-talon.html Hope you like! Pete
  7. Announced some time ago the first 1/48th complete kit of the famous Corean craft company Wolfpack Design (http://www.wolfpack-d.com/) is now on approach - release Mid June 2013 -, a brand new Northrop T-38A Talon - ref. WP10002 Another fierce commercial combat in view as Trumpeter has also announced a T-38 Talon kit for 2013 - ref.02852.

  8. 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.
  9. Technically this is not 100% done given I still need to add the photoetched seatbelts, the mirrors and the navigation lights. But I won't be able to get back to it for a couple weeks (deep into finishing up an Eagle Transporter right now for a convention), so I felt it was decent enough to post it as is. I took on this project as a quickie build to get my modeling mojo back. Lately I didn't feel like working on much of anything as the long projects just seemed to get longer with not much reward to show for it. I also recently picked up Trumpeter's NASA T-38C kit and while it is a good kit, it still needed some modifications and I didn't feel comfortable with doing the work just yet. What I needed was an out of the box build. So, I ended up with this to help my creativity and help me get a handle on what was needed for when I tackle the NASA T-38N I want to build later. I know, the Wolfpack kit is better. But this one fit together very well and looks good. The canopies are the biggest issue, but their shape problems aren't as noticeable with the canopies open all things considered. The rest of the model captures the classic T-38 lines rather nicely and I am more than happy with the results. Tamiya Fine White primer was used and over that I sprayed on Gunze Mr Base White 1000 as a base coat. Before adding the gloss coat of Tamiya Pure White spray TS-26, I used a mechanical pencil to draw on the panel lines and a Sakura Pigma Micron black pen with a .005 tip to accent the control surface splits as a form of pre-shading. It worked reasonably well as you can see it far away, but it is visible up close. The markings I used came from SuperScale sheet 48-905 and I selected this scheme because my local club was having a SAC contest at the next meeting. I finished it for the meeting and it took first place. T-38s were used by the 9th SRW as both proficiency trainers and chase planes and they looked good in the yellow striped livery they wore in the late 1980s. But, the decal sheet I used had some problems as the colors weren't quite right for the yellow, the stripe shape was off and even the USAF titles and national insignias weren't right. So I ended up having to use some proper lettering from other sheets. The national insignias came from a Testors F-5A kit. The decal instructions also had some errors, meaning I had to really scramble for references (which are surprisingly few for these specific planes). But I think I pulled it off. All the markings went down just fine with Microsol. Even the candy stripe decal on the pitot tube isn't quite right as it is too skinny. But, live and learn for next time. One thing I am very happy with though is the off-white coloring of the windscreen border. I know, it should be inside, not outside. But, application of a little 0.7 mm Aizu tape (same as Tamiya, just cut into finer widths) represented it nicely. I brushed on a little thin white glue to keep it from curling up with age. I was going to paint it in a pale tan coloring, but the yellow coloring of the tape looked close enough and I kept it as is. Now I'm on a T-38/ F-5 kick, so expect a few more builds of Northrop's nimble birds in the not too distant future, starting with a NASA T-38 or two.
