Hi Andy

Nice review. I have to admit when the kit arrived from Jim and I saw how tasty it looked, I was seriously tempted not to forward it to you!

All the best

Ok now there are enough F-5 "E"

Now we NEED the "A" version

Greek modelers are praying for this version...

Anyone hear me, please

I will try to contact the AFV in the Taiwan modeler's forums for you.
The next subtype of F-5 will be released by AFV is F-5F.
You can see the ad of F-5F on the top of AVF club CHINSES website.

Good news for you!!
AFV club said they have development plan for F-5A ,
but the release time is a secret.
They also knew their english website has some problems.
They will try to get the problems and fix them.

As will Canadians, and many more. So sad to read about the crash. My condolences to the pilots' families.

Kinetic has a 48th F-5A & B underway, so another hat in the ring; so to speak.

There was also a company out of Turkey (Tan Model) who recently announced a 48th F-5A, but the CAD renderings looks terribly inaccurate!

Do you need to put weights on the nose, to prevent it from being a tail hugger?
