F-5E/N Tiger II

By: Platz

Item no: FC-13 Price: US£22.09


This is another Platz/F- Toys collaboration and provides enough parts for two full models, making this good value for money. The exterior detail is delightful, with delicate engraved panel lines – these are arguably better than larger scale offerings – while the large locating pins indicate this can be assembled without glue if desired. No interior is provided for the cockpit, although this should be easy to scratch-build, and the models can be built in either wheels up/down configuration. The decal sheet has full markings for all three schemes, with red and black options for the wing walkway areas and emergency placards:
