Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series HA3332
Northrop F-5E Tiger II Diecast Model
Swiss Air Force Patrouille Suisse, Switzerland, 2017, w/Decal Sheet

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Northrop F-5E Tiger II   7.75"   4.5"

The Patrouille Suisse was to disband by early 2016 when the Swiss Government would retire the F-5E and procure the Gripen E. It was finally decided not to buy the Gripen E and perhaps by the end of the 2016 season replace the six F-5Es with four F/A-18Cs without special paint schemes as well as a reduced show schedule. However, with the cancellation of the Gripen, the Swiss Parliament and Air Force have decided to operate 18 F-5E so the Patrouille Suisse should fly at least through 2018.

Includes decal sheet to mark as the aircraft of your choice, #J-3081 - #J-3091.

Northrop F-5E Tiger II

Designed partly to meet a US Navy requirement for a low-cost, low-maintenance fighter to operate from Escort Carriers, the F-5 first flew on July 30, 1959. Development of the F-5 continued even after the Navy withdrew its Escort Carriers, and the aircraft eventually evolved into the light, supersonic "Freedom Fighter," serving US allies during the Cold War and as a supersonic trainer in the US. The second-generation F-5 ("Tiger II") also served US allies, but because it was small and maneuverable like a MiG it was also used by the US military as a training and "aggressor" aircraft, acting as the opposing force during military wargames.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-5 Tiger II is a sleek and fast looking model that uses a clever mix of metal and plastic components with near-seamless construction. The solid metal wing has sharp-edged plastic leading edge root extensions appropriate to the variant being modeled. The removable canopy provides a clear view of the cockpit's interior features such as the pad-printed front and side mounted instrument panels. Landing gear and doors have been included as one piece sub-assemblies that allow for quick and easy configuration for ground display. The series covers both fighter variants with optional ordnance configurations (see photos) and the long nose reconnaissance variant.
