The F-5 is a light multi-role plane which fufills the roles of fighter, fighter-bomber, trainer and recon. The USAF and USN did not need the fighter versions but bought trainer versions and used them most famously as 'aggressor' aircraft in combat training. Many of the US' allies did buy the fighter and fighter bomber versions as it gave them cheap, relatively high performance, agile planes.

The F-5A was the original single seat fighter, initially without radar, although many were upgraded with radar later on. The CF-5A is the same plane but built in Canada and the NF-5A is the same plane made for the Dutch Air Force. The F-5A and later versions were highly successful and are one of the most widely used jet fighters in history.

Kinetic are from Hong Kong and are relatively new. They have recently released a range 1/48 aircraft including not only this F-5 but different versions of the Mirage 2000 and F-16. Kinetic kits are highly detailed, using engraved panel lines and are known for having plenty of choice for ordnance on the models. 

There are markings are provided for 6 different planes of the following Air forces - Norway, Netherlands and Spain
