Those are way too bulged for an in-service F-5.  No pilot would take off with tires that flat.

 

 

 

The bulge looks a bit big (giggdy)  but they dont look that flat to me.

Hey, we're talking about tiny pieces of plastic that are trying to give our models a bit of an artistic edge.  No pilot would take off with a plastic cockpit either.

I had not heard that either, but good news for sure!   As soon as a pit set and intakes are available, I think Ill be investing in one of these

 I'm waiting for the same reasons, that and some nice USMC adversary decals :thumbsup:

Has anyone released any USMC adversary decals?  I thought I saw somebody had released a mask set but I can't seem to find it.  Either that or I was just dreaming haha...

Two Tuesdays have come and gone.  Nothing on their FB page.

 

I know, they're such teases! Wonder if they'll produce an RF set like they do in 1/48..? Might have to email them again, if I do will be sure to ask what Tuesday afternoon, though your time will probably be in the morning, life eh..?

Any news regarding a resin cockpit set for the E or F? I heard that KASL was doing one, but have not heard anything more. These kits REALLY need cockpit sets, but it seems like they're being totally ignored. Maybe if we could convince Aires that they're really an F-14, or BF whatever..... Then there would be tons of resin released! :P Fred K.

The cockpit is decent from the box only needing some wires and mods . An early seat . Some varied IPs and exhaust are way higher in my wishlist . Extended tail plug and refueling probes are even higher than a full pit in my book .

As for the missing depth of the cockpit, as stated earlier, that would be around 3.5mm. 

 

That translates to 11.2cm or 4.4 inch in real life. With the ejection seat in place, how visible will that really be, I wonder?
