Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Northrop Grumman F-5E Tiger II – #74-1534, 527th TFTAS, USAF, RAF Alconbury, England 1976-1988

1:72 Scale.  Length: 7.75".  Wingspan: 4.5"



Limited production of approximately 300 models worldwide


Northrop Grumman F-5E Tiger II 74-1534 was delivered to the 527th Tactical Fighter Training and Aggressor Squadron (USAFE) at Alconbury AB, England on May 21, 1976 wearing the ‘Grape’ color scheme. The 527th TFTAS was responsible for training pilots new flying skills or refreshing them by using the F-5E as the aggressor. The 527th TFTAS operated at Alconbury from May 1976 until 1988. On October 19, 1987 F-5E Tiger II #74-1534 collided mid-air with an F-16, killing the F-16 pilot. The F-5E pilot managed to safely eject.

The Northrop F-5 was designed as an extremely maneuverable, twin-engine supersonic fighter aircraft with a high rate of reliability at a low operating cost. It was first flown 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 four decades later. The F-5 was manufactured by Northrop Grumman and under license in Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland.
