I’ve seen a few comments about the old boxing having fit issues and people asking if this is a completely new tool, I’m assuming it’s the original tooling with new weapons.

It's the original tooling with weapons /tanks from the Skunkmodels IDF/AF weapons set. Possibly new decals.

They retooled at least the nose section.

They gradually had correct some of their first tools, namely the F-16 and Prowler 's ones, correcting some blatant errors made by in the past.

Gorgeous artwork for the Sufa.

 

Most online reviews seem positive about Kinetic's F-16 moulding. Any dissenters out there?

hmmm

always depends on what you compare it with...

the retooled nose section still has a strange shape to some... usually you recognize a Kinetic F-16 very quickly :(

 

additionally it does not seem the easiest kit to build, lots of fit issues.. especially to the close to perfect Tamiya Viper...

 

but oob it is the only way to do a modern AM/ BM or any Dmodel... Hasegawa had an I / Sufa, but that is still partly an old model not incorporating all necessary updates...

 

up to you if you feel fit for the challange!
