I did ask one of the guys at the Aires stand at Telford last year whether they would be releasing a cockpit of the KH F-5, and he shook his head.  Don't know how deeply he is involved in the decision making process however...

 

 

 

Probably would have responded similarly to the T-28, but they've released a couple of sets for that, I don't think it controversial to say the F-5 kits will be much more popular.

Indeed, I have a VERY nice Aires FULL cockpit set for the T-28 (which actually a great fitting kit, still with some strange KHM engineering and choices) so I would see no reason why they wouldn't do a set for the F-5.

I had the Black Box 1/32 set when I build 1/32 models (now I am a 1/48er  guy) and it was wonderful .

Now I have the 1/48  KASL F-5s sets and they are also great !

I wouldn't be surprised if KASL did some sets for the kits, including cockpits. Fingers crossed, toes too!

 

I'm rather surprised that Aires hasn't popped out something for this bad boy yet.

it depends how KASL Hobby makes its resin sets. if they use CAD, it's relatively easy to convert what they have right now in 1/48 to 1/32, however, if they don't it will take some time to create a new set. Less we forget that they're monitoring how the market sales for the specific kits are doing. For example, if Academy had chosen not to offer the AFV CLUB F-5E/F in a lowered price neither AIRES nor KASL would have produced their sets.

 

As they say, 'patience is a virtue'. Let's start with buying the kits (that is, for us you haven't done so yet!) and then wait a little bit more for either the AIRES and KASL resin sets to fill the market.

Probably their other sets for KH kits did not sell well.....

 

Whoever is deciding Aires release list needs to really get out more.

Someof there decisions both for releases and non releases make you wonder if they have any idea about what would be popular.

No A-6 stuff in 48th or 32nd for a kit now in its second run in both scales, No Mig-29’s lucky we have CWS but lost money for Aires.

Lets release heaps of stuff for the worst Trumpeter kits then ignore the big selling good ones...now lets do the same with Kittyhawk...marketing insanity.

 It makes me wonder, that's for sure. I've got 11 of the KH F-5E's, 3 F-5F's, and 2 Trumpeter A-6A/E's. They could all use some resin cockpits, but thus far, no one wants to take my money :BANGHEAD2:  Fred K.
