Spotlight Review

"The F5 update that lost the competition to the F16. A nice model to have on the stand."
jclemente1980 (Coimbra, Portugal)
This airplane was an improved F-5 fighter that had a new and more powerfull engine, better electronics, but the overall details of its father. It was facing the F16 as the cheap fighter. And it lost. Only 2 were made, and used as testing. As a kit, its simple but with adequate details. Not many know what is this model about, as it is a rare airplane, even if the kit is common. nice to be near a YF-16 prototype.

"Can't beat the price!"
I got it for x-ma's my mother knows I,m an F-5 freak. And this kit didn't disappoint! It is pretty simple but has decent detail. I had a lot of fun building this kit!

Glad Hasegawa has chosen this plane for its 1/72nd scale lineup. The kit is fairly simple, and thus, should make for a fast build. The F-20 Tigershark was essentially a beefed up F-5 Freedom Fighter on steroids. It was fast, agile, and could carry an impressive array of ordinance. Unfortunately, it lost out to the F-16 in competition. Nonetheless, I think it's a fine looking plane and I'm happy to have it in my display case. This would be a great first model for beginners, but experienced modelers will probably like it too. It would be fun to experiment with this plane and update it to what it might look like now had it made into front line service. Let your imagination run wild!
