OFFICIAL USAF COLOUR INFORMATION T-38
from USAF handbook Technical order TO 1-1-4. Collection M. de Vreeze (used with permission)
Standard System colour numbers refer to the Federal Standard system with 5 digit numbered colours. Deviations on real aircraft may occur.
Some schemes shown are for T-38 aircraft painted in Agressor like paint schemes.
A few plastic scale models have appeared over the years. In 1/72 scale the Hasegawa-Minicraft kit was the only option for many years with PM having also a very basic kit. Far better now is the 1/72 Sword kit.
In 1/48 there was an old Fujimi and Testors-Hawk 1/50 kit with also an Academy 1/48 kit. Now a better 1/48 Sword kit is available as well as from Wolfpack. In 1/32 a resin model was released by ColectAire.
