New Review: F-5 E/N Tiger II


Recommended Posts

The Northrop F-5 was designed by Edgar Schmued, who had previously been at North American, and was responsible for the P-51 and F-86.  The idea for the F-5 was to produce a lighter, less expensive and more maneuverable fighter, going against the 1960s trend of bigger, heavier fighters.  The F-5 has been successful, used by more than 20 foreign operators, as well as the US Navy, as an F-5N aggressor aircraft.


Platz produces model kits, but they also sell a large number of "foreign" kits, ie not from Japan in their store.  The web site says this kit is produced by Platz.  The box says F Toys/Platz. 

You get two aircraft in the box, and decals for 3 planes.
