Iran = Persia and vice versa, also the population of Iran is over 60% Persian and they are the
dominant ethnicity in all ways ... so from whom are they claiming independence?

Or are you positing a Persia that was conquered and remained under the control of the Ottoman, Mughal
or Russian Empire?

A couple of T-38 proposals (courtesy of http://ghostmodeler.blogspot.de/2012/09/talons-in-space-northrops-n-205-proposal.html):

Supersonic VIP transport:



T-38 VTOL variant:

1/32 T-38 would make into cool 1/72 transport !
But there aint one far as I know.

It would be a rebel force against the current administration(s) found in that land.   The F-20 would be pitted against the indigenous F-5 derivative that's been developed.  (whatever that aircraft is called, I don't remember its name at the moment).   

Or it would be a force against a greatly enlarged Khemed that a much older Tintin would cover.   Khemed would have a swept wing MiG-21F and the Persians  the F-5E/F.

Rather than the N-156NN, it likely would've been a later design development, the N-251B which had a raised cockpit compared to the N-156 and increased wing area.

Do you happen to have a line drawing for this?

(Assuming it doesn't have anything to do with the first post in this thread...... by mentioning N-156NN again I am looking for a CVE-compatible fighter jet......)
Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

Unfortunately, I didn't borrow and copy that brochure when I had the chance (co-worker on a classified program there had it and getting things in and out was a pain at times).

Regarding a 1/48 T-38, didn't Fujimi do one?

PAK-20 book says for T-38A/D:

Academy; Fujimi (reboxed by AHM and Bachmann); Hasegawa (reboxed by Minicraft); Sword; Testors.

Isn't one of the Chinese companies supposed to be releasing one soon?

Given the similarity between the T-38A and the F-5B, I'd expect it to be AFV Club along with all their other F-5 kits.

Am I the only one who thinks that naval concept looks a bit like the outcome if an F-5 knocked up an Su-25 Frogfoot?

Ok, go it.  The half breed look is there.

X-29 with F-20A cockpit and nose with vectoring LO nozzle on a F414.  Four or six underwing stores points with pylons shaped to avoid the moving portions of the wing.

Great concept, Evan. And very doable. Please, refresh my understanding: "moving portions of the wing" as in control surfaces, or as in parts that don't flex inflight?. And what's the shape of that 2-D nozzle?, I know I've seen it, but can't precisely find it.
