AMS Resin 1/48 F-5E Duckbill Nose w/LEX First Look
|Date of Review||December 2008||Manufacturer||AMS Resin|
|Subject||F-5E Duckbill Nose w/LEX||Scale||1/48|
|Pros||Nice update to the Monogram or ESCI/Italeri kits||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$6.00|
AMS Resin is back with another nice detail set, this time for the 1/48 scale F-5E Tiger II. This set will upgrade either the Revell-Monogram or ESCI/Italeri kits to the later configurations with the F-20-style sharknose (or duckbill) and the updated leading edge extensions (LEX).
If you've wanted to build one of the later versions of the US Navy adversary aircraft or some of the updated international Tigers, this set will provide a painless update to get your kit looking right for the mission.
Recommended for experienced modelers!
My sincere thanks to AMS Resin for this review sample!
