Default RE: T-38 F-5 F-20 Kits

thanks guys for all the suggestions i will look into all of them. this will be my first jet. i have been flying for 33 years and can fly anything. i do have many high wing loaded planes and many over the 140 range and one in 190 range. i like the F-15 but everyone has them. i dont mind build as that would save some cash. although i dont have cash to buy everything upfront doesnt mean i will put the cheap 10 dollar HK 300 ounce servos either lol. i will do it up right.

I like the Stock AF white color setup but the Beal AFB Black is nice also.

As for these kits do they offer the scale retracts to go with them for those who have had one?

The SM T-38 is beautiful! A friend of mine has one. Still being built though. Looking forward to the first flight.

I am building the Skymaster F-20 and F-16 (1/6.75). Are there threaded inserts in the wing tips to mount the missile rails ? Are they under the glass cloth or do I have to install them?

Yo Woooooddddd!!!!! R u back on da scene? We missed you and your Ho! I've been rockin some Heavy Metal myself. Please pardon guys.....let me get back to the T-38. I'm shopping for one also. I see them darting in and out of Ellington just about every day. I'm leaning towards the SkyMaster although I prefer a twin sized ride but I don't know of any out there. I saw the SkyMaster fly at the Mississippi Afterburner this year and it did a really nice job. The owner was very pleased.

Hi Jed, I'm working on a skymaster F-5, I was wondering were did you get the mechanism to operate the canopy or did you make them yourself.

Frank,

WOW!! I haven't been on RCU in years and came across your question. Yes I made the operating canopy mechanism myself. The T-38 rear canopy mechanism is the same as the single seat F-5. I was able to take measurements from one that the museum in Birmingham has on display.

Jed whats up my Brother! I just asked Rich Miller about you last week. I was wondering if he had heard from you and how you have been. I have so many questions for you. Did you ever get the job with FEDEX? Did you get into that Giant Scale project you wanted to do? Do you still have the pretty F-5? I have been away awhile too but am Building a Flash right now.

Still flying for the same company. Flying a Global Express, Challenger 604 and Lear 40. Yep, still have the F-5 she doesn't get out much lately. I've been working on a 1/6 scale PBJ-1H, "B-25", 135" wing span for past 3 years.

I am building the Skymaster F20. I understand there are mounting nuts in the wing tips for the missles. I cannot tell where they are. Can anyone confirm the nuts are there from the factory and do you have measurements for their location? How did you mount your missiles?

Thanks
