I've had a re-think and an Esci F-5B (or the Italeri/Revell reboxings) would work better.  Can anybody offer one of these for beer vouchers/swaps?

Ta for looking!

I think I have one of each surplus to requirements, let me look through the stash and I'll get back to you.

Hi Simon,
I have in my hands an Italeri F-5F Tiger 11 if you are interested, PM me if you could live with that.
My original idea was to combine it with the flying surfaces of the X-29 from the Hasegawa kit, but i now know that I do not have enough years left on this mortal coil to build all these ideas that I have.

Thank you as always Jim, although I've got my heart set on a F-5B or T-38.  It's for a real project and there's too many changes in the Tiger.

I'll take over his former spot and declare that I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a Sword 1/72 T-38. Would have mentioned it a couple days ago when I first saw it but I didn't want to cut in line, as it were.  :lol:

Fight you for it!  :wacko:  Seriously, no worries as the project I'm looking at has aspects of both the T-33 and F-5B and it'll be easier to remove stuff from the latter then add it to the former.  Still, if you find a few I'll have one, although the odds of stepping in rocking horse point seem higher.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Them Sword T-38s are rare.....  first one comes up is yours! I'll wait for the second.  ;D I just threw in my hat because I figured one of those F-5Bs will come up sooner than the Sword T-38.  ;D

I saw one once on eBay a couple years ago and something told me I should have snagged it then and it turns out I was right. It was a bit pricey... I probably didn't want to pay it, but had I the chance now I'd snap it up.  :banghead:


EDIT:  Seeing as I'm a fan of the T-38, I'm curious as to why, say, a Hasegawa or PM T-38 kit wouldn't do if a F-5B would suffice anyway? I know they're not accurate, but if you're willing to "settle" for an F-5B, why not possibly settle for for one of those other kits (which are really just F-5Bs anyway). Is there something special about the ESCI F-5B?  I'm curious is all, not trying to criticize... I'm just wondering what the differences are because I don't know and would like to.  :lol: :thumbsup:

Be aware that the PM one isn't 1/72 by a long shot.  Its more like 1/80+...

It's the best of it's time and nothing's come along since.  Like a lot of Esci kits, it still holds up well for it's age.

I'm not settling, the F-5B will work better (If I used a T-33 kit I'd probably need some F-5 parts) and the Sword T-33s are proving very shy!  Please take any Sword kit that comes along, I've no specific need now, it'd just be stash fodder

Thanks Brian, I'll definitely give that one a miss then.  It seems the Hasegawa and Starfix kits are pretty rough too.  There's a Matchbox kit which seems okay, but it goes for daft prices on eBay.

Cheers!! I'm now adding the ESCI F-5B to my list of wants with this new knowledge.



Didn't know about that PM kit being weird size... that definitely means the one I have will be used for what-if purposes.

Starfix...  I forgot to mention that one, I have one of them too but I knew it wasn't worth bringing up I guess.  ;D

This came into my possession a few days ago (thanks again Robert  :thumbsup:).  Really is a nice kit for it's age.  Engraved panel lines and more than enough detail from be going with.  The fuselage is split for a single seat nose, the F-5A is also available.

This'll be my entry into the engines more or less GB. :thumbsup:

And I have one of those in my stash too, along with an RF-5A/Skoshi Tiger.

Do you mean the kit decals from the MPC (nee Airfix) kit you posted the pic of?

My copy of that kit was sealed when I got it so the transfers could be usable.  I'll have a look.  I won't be using them so you can have them if you want.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Oddly enough, they provide the photo NOSE but not the photo decals.  :banghead:
