Spotlight Review

"Excellent Kit!"
Ace Cobra
This 1/72 F-5E is perfect not only because it is at a very cheap price, but because it is easy to build and has excellent panel detail! Unlike many 1/72 kits out there, this one actually comes with good cockpit detail! Nice weapons selection and a decal sheet to choose from 4 aircraft.

"Loved it!"
This is by far the best F-5 in 72nd scale. I've built three of them. Excellent cockpit detail! Great panel lines and very good fitting parts!

"Astounding Quality, Considering Price"
If you look at this kit in a quality vs price equation, I don't think that there is a single other 1/72 modern jet kit that can even compare. I can not even imagine how Hobby Boss is able to supply this kit and make money off of it. Overall, the molding is very high quality, with a surprisingly high number of parts and next to no flash. The recessed panel line detail is particularly nice, though likely a bit too deep. One of the best parts of this kit is the cockpit, with a very well detailed cockpit and instrument panel that looks especially nice beneath the canopy. When I built mine, I didn't use any of the kit decals, so I can't speak to the quality of those. This kit would probably make a really good first step for a younger person looking to get into the hobby. It is not too difficult to build, yet still present's nicely. And, of they manage to botch it up, only a very small amount of money has been wasted.

"nice kit."

this is a very nice kit and at a great price. it is very detailed and has deep panel lines. the wing roots can be a little problematic, but with a little patience will go together with little need for filler.
