measure the effectiveness.
Don't try to simulate the ultra complex interactions of temperatures and Starting Transformer with varying resistances and varying emfs with varying capacitor charge.
Look at some of Gootee's simulations for the steady state PSU capacitance AFTER the added resistor has been bypassed to get an inkling to the complexity involved.

How would that do do you think ?

That page does not state the heatsink Rth s-a
Do you have that figure?
Do you know at what delta s-a that the Rth s-a applies?

A 4U is OK for the standard F5, but I would use a 5U for the F5T.

Andrew, you are saying measure Amps running through the primary using a softstart? I would like to measure it if I can. Do I need anything more than a digital Multi Meter? You are saying that a CL30 on the primary is not that effective, and should be on the secondary?

Also make sure you use at least the 400mm model. The 300mm will not have enough disappation because the fins on their heatsinks are just not long enough to handle all the heat.

C/W rating pr side of the 4U chassis is: 0.31C/W for 300mm. and 0.19C/W for 400mm
5U is: 0.20C/W for 300mm, 0.14C/W for 400mm and 0.115C/W for 500mm.
this numbers i guess is at about 75-80C above ambient.

To give a comparison: on my KSA50 clone I use heatsinks on each side that are 200mm tall and are 510mm deep. The extrusions has a solid area that is 16mm thick and fins that are 60mm, and are spaced 13mm apart. Each fin taper from a root of 5mm to tip of 1mm. The KSA50 is biased at the moment to deliver 55W into an 8R load and I can keep my hand on the sink for only 15secs.

that is not a good comparison. whats the total dissipation of the amp? and howe did you arange the outputs? that is the key(s).
and of course, Your ambient temp will have alot to say.
