The first F-5Es entered Korean service in 1974, when 19 ex-Vietnamese Air Force aircraft were delivered. This laid the foundation for the acquisition of 126 new-build F-5Es and 20 F-5Fs. The first F-5Es were allocated to the 1st Fighter Wing (115th, 122nd, and 123rd Tactical Fighter Squadrons) based at Kwang Ju air base.
Your aircraft model will be a perfect replication with squadron markings and any tail number. We will also include pilot, WSO, and crew chief names on both sides of the canopy and any nose art. Personalized stands are included with any patch and any two lines of text. After you place your order, we will email a detailed customization form to capture the details and the ordnance of your choice. Our miniature models are also 100% customized, but do not include ordnance.
