"Dime Scale" models are now a class flown in some competitions. Kit consists of contest grade printwood, contest quality strip wood, machine cut balsa propeller, the best Japanese tissue, wooden wheels, competition bushed nose plug, brass thrust washers, prop shaft, prop freewheeler, FAI rubber strip motor and a copy of a genuine dime scale plan that was used in the 1930s-1940s.

Aurora Northrop N-156 (F-5 Prototype) Freedom Fighter, 1/48, 140-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$70   

Dated 1962 with fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork. However, the lack of the 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the logo tells us that this issue is from around 1963-'65. Excellent condition box. Kit includes pilot, cockpit and instrument panel and three drop tanks and early AIM-9 Sidewinder Air-to-Air Missiles. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals are 100% intact but have some very fine visible age cracking. This kit is a very good representation of the rare 'Freedom Fighter' prototype N-156. It developed into the F-5, which was widely exported and saw service in over 30 countries. Only three of the N-156 prototypes were built. The design centered around two GE J85 turbojets which originally powered the ADM-20 Quail decoy carried by the B-52 fleet. Initially there seemed to be little demand until President Kennedy's Military Assistance Program required a low-cost fighter that could be provided to US Allies. The N-156 was easily the top choice. It was renamed the F-5 and the rest is history - it became one of the most widely used fighter/bombers in post-WWII history and is still in service in some air forces.
