I've got so say if the fit on this kit is good, the only thing otherwise I've seen that worries me for releases like the Jag is the lack of trunking.

No, no intake ducting of any sort.

 

 

Welp, that's definitely unfortunate. That's been a problem on multiple KH kits now.  A hole straight through the fuselage isn't a good look on airplanes

I have to agree here. FOD covers are a poor choice (to me), but a lot better than gazing at the fuselage interior, that's for sure. Quickboost or similar will probably eventually take care of that for us, or at least I hope so.

That's really disappointing with no intake trunks. Someone will release some aftermarket ones I'm sure of it but does drive the cost of the kit up to have to buy aftermarket intakes on something that should have been supplied with the kit. Hopefully KH they will take that on board for future kits.

Are you saying that the F-5E kit only has a bulkhead with compressor faces on it, for that glamorous see-through effect we've all come to know from Revell? Oops. And if no bulkhead, double oops. Imagine a new 1/32 radial engined prop kit with just a disc and some engine-looking lumps on it? It would get torn to pieces.
This fix is GT Resin or Rhino territory.

I like what I've seen about most of this kit but the wallet time lock is currently programmed for the Kitty Hawk 1/48 Voodoos.

Michael Benolkin of Cyber Modeler is currently building a 1/32 KittyHawk F-5E Tiger II, in a backdated version of the first operational years,

with pointed radome, no lerx, no rhaw blisters, etc...

 

It is quite interesting to follow his progression on the building process.

Funny Swiss F-5s should be mentioned. Just got my Matterhorn Circle decals in the mail today.

Excellent reference material and I'm sure a very decent decal sheet!

Steve S. - waiting for the KH kit to arrive in the UK!!

Nope, not even a bulkhead, just a view straight down the throat of fuselage interior and two engine faces.
