Those of you that have the Sword 1/48 T-38A need to order this sheet!! This sheet is all about Test T-38s from the US Navy Test Pilot School and the USAF Test Pilot School. You get three options on the sheet, one Edwards AFB test jet and two USNTPS Talons. The Navy ones are quite colorful with red orange bands from the tip of the nose to the top of the vertical stab.


The sheet is very well researched and Bob had some assistance from members of both schools. The instructions are full color and contain pictures of the actual aircraft on the sheet. I find this quite valuable to compare colors and even weathering. The Edward jet has a special instrumented pitot boom installed for high angle of attack tests. The photos included give you some assistance scratch building this boom. It looks quite simple to do. All three aircraft are overall FS17875 white with FS37038 black anti glare panels.  


The decals themselves are in perfect register on my sheet. The red orange looks just like the pics I have of USNTPS jets. The colors all seem spot on to me. There is hardly any carrier film to be seen. Another cool thing is how the USAF for the port side lower wing is already cut so in order to aid in positioning on a gear down model.


What else can be said about this sheet other than it is up to Two Bobs usual high standards. I for one am happy to see some colorful subjects like the T-38 starting to get some attention. I am sure this sheet will be a quick seller for Bob Sanchez.


My thanks to Bob Sanchez of Two Bobs Aviation Graphics for the review sample. The sheet runs $9.50 USD and can be ordered directly at www.TwoBobs.net
