Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series HA3331 Northrop F-5E Tiger II Swiss Air Force 19 Staffel, #J-3038, Switzerland, Squadron 75th Anniversary 2017. 1/72 Scale Diecast Model, Size: 4.5" Wingspan, 7.75" Long, Optional Up & Down Landing Gear, Armaments & Display Stand Are Included.

The Northrop F-5 tactical fighter was designed as an extremely maneuverable, supersonicfighter with a high rate of reliability at a low operating cost. The F-5 first flew on July 30,1959 with the first customer delivery in 1964. The last of more than 2,600 F-5’s was produced in 1989 and about two-thirds of these are still in service with 26 countries more than 4 decades later. The F-5 was manufactured by Northrop Grumman and under license in Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland. Primary Role: Light Fighter.

Swiss Air Force Squadron (Fliegerstaffel) 8 “Vandalos” was formed in 1925. In 1993 Staffel 8 received the first F-5E. All Swiss squadrons are militia units and don’t have specific aircraft assigned to them so they draw from a pool of aircraft. J-3073 is unique for Staffel 8 because in March 2017 this aircraft received a special squadron-related paint scheme on the vertical stabilizer. In the scheme is the red sawfish “Vandalo”, numerous 8’s and “ADIO VANDALO”, “Good Bye Vandalo” because like Staffel 6 and 19, Staffel 8 F-5E’s future is uncertain.
