1/48 - Northrop F-5A/CF-5A/NF-5A Freedom Fighter by Kinetic - released

Recommended Posts

Since today (May 6th, 2012) the Lucky Model website proposes the Kinetic 1/48th Northrop F-5A/CF-5A/NF-5A Freedom Fighter kit (ref. K48020) as pre-ordable.

Kinetic being closely related to Lucky Model, such advertisement indicates usually a very soon release of the kit.

Price P&P incl. : +/- £ 19.00!

Hope it and the Mirage aren't as over engineered as their F16C Barak, that one is really testing my sanity.

Pity about the Norwegian roundels. The rest of the Norwegian markings seems ok though.

Wrong proportions. Also wrong sizes for some of the subjects. Most important, they don't look right.

Caracal decals have a Skoshi Tiger on their new sheet.

It seems it has a recce nose for the RNF-5A version. :D:P

Those items highlighted in red seem to be A; the venetian blind vents as appeared on the F-5E Tiger! and B: the chaff dispenser as fitted to Dutch NF-5As and sold on to Greece in whose markings these are by the look of it.

I agree with you but i can't find the recce nose parts on the sprues pics. Does this kit contain any parts for a recce version of the F-5A? :(

1/48 : Is the F-5A Kinetic Kit Discontinued ?

 

Is the ref. K48020 F-5A Kinetic Kit Discontinued ?

It seems now impossible to find on any webstore of the planet !

And it is no longer on the catalogs of ''TopGun'' resellers like Hannants and Luckymodel !!!

I have asked the question directly to Kinetic Model on their facebook page but no answers for now.

Thanks for any info about it !
