Rebox of the F-20A, likely different weapon choices, different markings.    That's all I know.     The link to  Facebook seems to be gone.

Oh goodie!!!!

I did see reference to the F-20C in the instructions that came with their F-20B/N kit but wasn't sure if it was a definite release.  This now looks likely.

I wonder if this will come with a bigger wing?

One can but hope!  It looks like they are using the inflight refueling fit from the CF-5A rather than what was fitted to the "Shoski Tigers" by the USAF (different side of the aircraft).  I have a 1/48 conversion kit for a CF-5A I was planning on using on a Monogram F-20A kit.

I'm very interested to see what decals they might include with this whiff (I love their use of the "WHIF" markings on this and the F-20B/N BTW).

I think the following would be a good start:

Israel
Taiwan
West Germany
New Zealand
Saudi Arabia

It looks like options included are RoCAF, Brazil, USAF (Hill AFB - Euro and Desert schemes) and no new wing...



I will also be keeping an eye on this one, having resisted thus far to grab any of the previous two releases. High chances my will... will break with this boxing  :D

Looking at this, I think that unfortunately there is no big wing:

As this is a very nice 'what-if', why not put a bigger wing on it, XF-17 or even a modified F-18 wing ----  ???

Does someone have images comparing the F-20 normal wing vs the big wing?

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Not yet; we'll likely need to wait on Tony Chong's Northrop book for that.

Interesting, however the ROCAF Hawk IIIs were not the same as the USN BF2C-1.

In that first picture, are the F-CK-1A's going into the merge against JMSDF P-3's?

Interesting how the picture changed.  First PLAAF Tu-16s and then later JMSDF P-3s...   ;)

More likely the PRC telling the ROC to pull its head in.
