It's "new" and rather expensive. It's extremely overpriced🙁
I don't touch exactly F-5 from HB, but know few kits of aircraft HB of 2006-2009 years - they all simple, not bad and cheap.
This kit not awful, but rather bad (at least not good) almost in all components.
1. Troubles with fit. Eve on clear parts. Use a lot of spare plastic to fill gaps (even under canopy). Holes near the exhaust was difficult to correct
2. Rough detailing - look to the landing gear (nose) for example
3. Lot of mistakes and missing steps and parts in manual.
4. Panel lines and rivets. Just look to them. They are or subtle or canyon-stype. Look to the tail - on left side clear, on right a lot of unnecessary. On other places - same shit.
5. Decals - good glue and fill in lines, but very thick base. And NO DECALS for armament at all! I use some spare parts from stash.
Resume - do not recommend this kit at all.
I had few models from DreamModel in my wishlist before - but now all of them deleted. Do not want to buy such product for that price again.
