    T-38 F-5 F-20 Kits

    I am still pondering getting a jet. I have always liked the lines on the T-38, F-5 and F-20. What kits are out there and who makes them? thinking of a K-80 or so for power.

    Not much out there for the K-80 size. FeiBao makes a small F-5 for P-60, K-80 might be a little too big for it. The JetLegend F-20 will definitely not fly well on a K-80, mine was decent on a 160.

    well i could always step up to a larger turbine if needed. I just liked the price of the K-80. I will look at the jet legend one

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

    If you don't mind going up then I would build a Skymaster F-5/F-20 and put a K-140 in it. That thing should haul the mail!! Saw the RCI demo plane fly with a JetCat P-120 in it and it was fun. I have been thinking about doing the combo as a fun plane!

    The Skymaster F-20 flies nice on a Jet Central Rhino.

    It doesn't unless he's considering the K-80, then it's a good airframe option for that turbine.
    But the Avonds F-104 is a superb kit and flyer. Here's mine.

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

    If you squint a bit, the CARF flash looks sorta like an F-20. You can order the white one and paint it, or pay them to paint it up for you......The K-80 would be a nice fit for it too!

    All I ask is for a chance to prove that money can\'t make me happy......

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

    There are JL F-20, and FB F-5 (1/6, 1/7) to choose from at our shop www.globaljetclub.com I recommend 1/6 with K-140 or P140, or Cheetah

    Personally I like the F-5 better. Got one in our Irvine showroom if you want to stop by and check it out.

    This is the one I have. I like the desert paint scheme. Saw a full scale one at Miramar a few months ago.

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

    Hello,
    I was thinking of the posibility of purchasing one skymaster F-5/F-20 for my M-100 Jets munt turbine. Do you think it will fly well or it will be short of thrust?
    Thanks

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

    Hi,

    Airworld Modellbau has a F-5E Tiger scale 1:5 for larger 12 Kg turbine or more
    http://www.airworld.online.de/Englisch/Index.htm

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8_WzFieeFo

    I saw one Feibao (I think it was) P-120 F-5 at a Swedish Jet meetingin summer 2010, only on ground andit was not flying,the finish wasgood.
    It had Simjet 3000. It was for sale, I tooktwo pictures of it (see below).

    Bob Fiorenze still advertises his T38 and it is very good scale project. Selling mostly as electric ducted fan now but a P60e would also work very well.

    That looks nice Mike. My FeiBao F-5 was just and AWESOME flying airplane! Don't be fooled or intimidated by the small wings. That fuse provides lots of lift and this thing settles in on final F-16 / Trainer like!

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

    HI Maj. Woody,

    Yup, you are right. just don't know why these thin small wings fly so well. I thought the same about the MIG21, yet the best flying machine. I just need to chase down my builder and have him finish this one for me.

    My second favorite paint scheme is this one. This is Mike Pope's nice flying EDF version. I am working on a 1/6 one with this Paint Scheme.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1PL...layer_embedded

    This one is a 1/7, and the 80 size will fly it nice.
