Corsairfoxfouruncle Posted July 9, 2022 Share Posted July 9, 2022 (edited) Hello everyone … This will be my entry for the build. Its Hasegawas F-20 which only comes with the company demonstrator scheme. Sadly I’m not a huge fan so this will be built in a WHIF scheme. The parts image is taken from google and will be replaced once I can open my box and photo it. My back story for the WHIF, the F-20 was a success in that it was taken up by various nations to replace the older F-5’s and in some countries to modernize their Air forces. The F-20 was also purchased by the USAF & USN in the late 1980’s to replace the F-5 aggressor’s. The USAF would also use it as a prototype chase plane. My particular plane is one of these. It is an F-20C based at Edward’s AFB in 2009 and for the airframes 50th anniversary is painted in this scheme. Which was worn at Edwards 50 years earlier on F-5A prototype scheme. Yes I will be doing Day-glo on this bare metal frame. https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Northrop_YF-5A_(SN_59-4987,_first_prototype_aircraft)_060905-F-1234S-001.jpg Please feel free to ask questions, post comments or add thoughts. Dennis PS - I do have a second F-20 which may also get built pending available time. Edited July 10, 2022 by Corsairfoxfouruncle 13 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
