10K Special: T-38A Talon

11.2k ChrisPy  2 months ago
Auto Credit Based on ChrisPy's T-38A Talon

Hey everyone, I decided I wanted to do something special.

When I learned @ChiChiWerx had flown T-38s and U-2s, I wanted to honor his service to his country and his dedication to our SimplePlanes community by making this plane. ChiChiWerx has helped me on numerous builds and I wholeheartedly appreciate him and his wonderful feedback, especially on my F-16 and this T-38. This T-38 is the same number he flew with the same markings and distinctive black and red paint job known to the Beale AFB T-38 A's. I hope y'all enjoy this as much as I have!
Thanks,
-ChrisPy

    Take me up, up in the sky,
    Where I'm gonna be flying high.
    Take me down and around the clouds
    where I can play
    I've been high, I've been low
    and goddamnit, I've been slow,
    but she'll be always my best mate,
    yeap my T-38.

    If you watch the movie you see a shot maybe about 2 or 3 seconds long with the t-38 it does kinda look like the F-5F but the nose is rounded. T-38s were used in dissimilar combat training so them being able to acquire it through the navy is quite probable. @EngineerOtaku

    @ChrisPy I figured it was a two-seat F-5. Everything I've heard says it was a couple F-5E's and F-5F's standing in, which makes sense as the planes would've been supplied by the Navy.

    I had ChiChiWerx test the flight model. He flew T-38s and told me it was accurate so I’m gonna go with what he said.@KangaKangaTheRedNosedRoo

    This is good looking build, but in my opinion doesn’t perform like a T-38, nonetheless it looks great, I improved the flight model myself btw.
