Freewing is very responsive to our feedback for items like this.

Regarding the F-5, notice that the prototype had incorrect wing-tip rails, and did not have the navigation blisters aft of the intake, or the electronics blisters beneath the guns. But now on the teaser photo from the Shanghai Model Expo this week, those details have since been added (in addition to the nose gear door which I spec'd).
Awesome , thanks man. It's great to have you on our side to provide feedback to Freewing. I love their receptiveness.

Exactly. That pilot would have been perfect, and they could just scale that to the correct size. As Cooler said, it's a telemarketer. LOL

T-Cat, good realistic pilot figures are hard to find.. A while back I found a nice 1/7th scale one for my F-86F build (see below) .
JHH does have a few depending on what size you need--
(Looking at this one for my F-18)

If your looking for 1/10th-1/12th scale Jet Fighter Pilots By Rocco

Thanks a ton! This helps tremendously. Detailed pilots are harder to find these days. I purchased some great ones from HK years ago, but I'm all out and they don't sell them any longer. Thanks again.

If you need a source for anything edf, just ask Cooler. He is a web shopping machine! And he catalogs all of his great finds I'll bet, because there's no way he remembers it all.

Sharper (Plastic) Intake Lip & Diffuser


Great looking F-5 overall. But for some reason the intake lip & diffuser looks dull and detract from the sleek looks of the model. They are screaming out at me . If it is not too late for the mold, can Freewing change those parts to injection molded plastic to keep the sharp edges??

The F-16 and F-86 look so much better with sharp looking plastic intakes.

What do you guys think?

I see what you mean, but right now everything I look at reminds me of Rachel Weisz for some reason.
