Falcon Models
FA721101
Northrop T-38A Talon 70-1559
445 FLTS (Flight Test Squadron), 412 TW,
Edwards Air Force Base, October 2009
1/72 Scale

October 2013 Release



Just in from Hong Kong.

The T-38 Talon is a two seat, twin engined supersonic jet trainer. It was the world's first supersonic trainer and has been produced in the greatest numbers. It has been in service with the USAF for over 50 years (entering service in 1961) and continues in service with several air forces around the world.

The model by Falcon is a nice little model and is the first example of the T-38 in diecast. Not a lot of complication here. You can display the model either gear up or gear down and comes with a display stand. The cockpit does come detailed with tandem instrument panels and can fit your standard Hobby Master pilots inside if you wish (as seen in my example). The canopy can only be displayed in the closed position. Paint quality is above average and all the parts fit together well. The nose and main gear are engineered as completed modules which appears to be the current standard among manufacturers.  The only irritant is that a portion of the "USAF" and "star and bar"under the wing is missing from the main gear doors on the gear down option.

Overall, a very nice model. Recommended for the USAF or Jet collector.
