"very good and an excellent price"
wildbill101048
to be honest, I had never heard of the F-20 and after some research I found out why. seems the F-20 was in competition with the F-16 to become a mainline fighter. the tigershark lost out in an apparently very close competition. politics became involved and Northrup did not press the issue even though their fighter was in many ways superior to the F-16. turns out they did not want to jeopardize their contract for the B-2 spirit bomber. Wikipedia sites sources as saying that this was the best fighter never put into production. as for the model.....it is very good. no fit problems, good cockpit, good landing gear. comes with a pilot.it is devoid of weapons except for a couple of sidewinders on the wing tips. I replaced the 3 fuel tanks with 2 mavericks, 2 gbu-12 on the wing pylons and a mk 82 center line, all from hasagawa weapons kits. highly recommend

"F-5 On Steroids!"
Jimmy D.
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!

 
"good but simple"
pamason (Entiat, WA)
This is a good what if plane. The parts fit well and cockpit has some detale and comes with pilot. The inst are easy to read and it is a plane that you can paint any you want. The decals that come with the plane are not much. But after market decals can make this any plane you want. same with the hardpoints it comes with three tanks and two sidwinders. But the chart shows were outher stores can be placed. A simple plane that is a great what if.
