I would like to build a 1:32 Tigershark as well. I have a Hasegawa F-5 kit and the Monogram 1:48th F-20.
My plan is to cut up the smaller kit so that I have fuselage cross sections. Scale everything up to 1:32 and start cutting plastic. It is a bit of work but you are only rebuilding the aft end of the fuselage.
When done you will have the 1:32 Tigershark in town.

Didn't I see a possible 1/32nd F-20 proposed by someone?

Isn’t Kittyhawk doing a 1/32 F-5? I don’t know if that is close to a F-20 or not, but seems like it would be an easier conversion than scratch building?
Kittyhawk has already released the F-5E kit. To make a F-20, you’d need to scratchbuild the entire rear fuselage at least because instead of two small engines, there is only one big engine. Add in bigger stabs and new cockpit, and you have a fair amount of work.
Even though the Hasegawa F-5s have been out for decades, I don’t think anyone ever made a F-20 conversion for it, so I’m guessing the popularity isn’t there. Only three prototypes were ever built, and two of them crashed within two years of being built.
