Tony, I think there was an Alconbury Grape option with this Revell release, happy hunting in the Traders Board!

 

Yes there is, there´s also a "Snake" scheme as well in that boxing!

 

Building one right now!

Yes Gary, "you build it and they will come!" - (sorry "Field of Dreams") - it's the intake and exhausts that are delaying my purchase of these kits and I know a number of others think this way.

Tha AFV Club series of F5s' in 48th have 'spoilt' the F5 modeller as they show what can be done but they're getting a tad old and hard to come by now.

 

Work your magic Gary!

Hi Don - my point exactly - out of 7 different boxings, only 3 are available in limited numbers and they aren't the most popular or have the 'mainstream' markings in the box - I'm sure the aftermarket decal manufacturers love them!

I currently have 3 AFV Club F5E/F and a Freedom Models F20B/N Tigershark in the works and I have to say I'm enjoying every last minute building them!

As a named "PhantomPhanatic" I must say I feel a bit of a traitor to my first love!!!

LOL, I know how you feel. Look on it as a minor dalliance and you will return to your (RAF) true love when it arrives in 1/32.

By the way, all AFV Club F-5E kits no longer available at Hannants of UK are still available from various online retailers in USA.

A quick research on these most popular USA online retailers and you will find all of them.

Release date announced for the 1/32 Kitty Hawk F-5F Twin Tiger II is September 5th 2018.

Hong Kong’s ''Sincere Hobby'' will most probably be one of the first online retailer to have it in stock and they already offer a ‘’Pre Order’’ option for it.

I asked Two Bobs about the Alconbury grape sheet, or part of it, being scaled up and they indicated it well might. Have they now categorically stated they will not do this?

 

 

 

 

If this is confirmed it is a very goob news indeed.

Lets wait and see if Two Bobs ''might'' do it or ''Do'' it.

 

As I mentionned before, Two Bobs could easily regroup all USAF agressors F-5E ''Bot Numbers'', serials, badges, stencils, etc.. on one large 1/32 decal sheet covering all subjects proposed on their 1/48 decal sheets plus a set of different color scheme instruction sheets.

 

And all the research needed is already made by Two Bobs. ( I repeat : all the research needed is already made by Two Bobs. )

 

I am just surprised Two Bobs Decals do not have done it yet.

I'm not keen on generic sheets as it's the small touches, like air and ground crew names, that are the real pull, as are the comprehensive instructions for a handful of subjects.

 

I'd rather Two Bobs created a 1/32 sheet or two with very specific aircraft subjects in mind, judiciously picking from their wealth of material; the heft of 1/32 deserves more attention to detail.

I sure do hope that Twobobs scales their USAF aggressor sheets up. Bob could literally corner the big scale USAF F-5E aggressor market with one release of a half dozen sheets. Time will tell.... Fred K.

Time for a lie down now 'cos I'm too too excited!

Intake trunks, intake covers and new two-piece nozzles - bring 'em on!

(Six E-models in my stash and planning to purchase at least one F boxing)
