Northrop F-5E/F-5N VFC-111 Sundowners, 1:48 Scale


Based on the successful and popular F-5E, Northrop commenced their new project originally dubbed the F-5G, was equipped with a General Electric F404 engine which was also adopted by the F/A-18 and was capable of firing the AIM-7 Sparrow missile. This aircraft boasted superior 'Beyond-Visual-Range' air combat capability.

Two prototype planes crashed during sales demonstrations and Northrop finally cancelled the project in 1986.

However, the craft had proven technics which became modifications on later production F-5E's such as the 'Shark Head' nose and leading edge extensions.

USN/USMC purchased 32 Swiss F-5E airframes in 2002 as the F-5N replacement and these were re-designated as F-5N after a major overhaul and remained in squadron until 2015.
