Let's be real, this kit is priced above their J-20 that is a vastly superior kit both in size and detail quality.

Judging by the cost of their AH-1Z, I'd say their management is trying to maximize income before the Wolfpack rebox shows up in stores. 

 

By Wolfpack rebox, were you referring to their RF-5A/F-5A kits:

Thinking about it, it would've been wonderful had Special Hobby taken on the Tiger family

I'm with you, Moritz.  I was hoping that after their Mirage F.1s, they'd do the Tigers next.

Not sure what you mean by "rebox."  I believe it's been confirmed that the F-5 announced by Wolfpack has no relationship to Dreammodel's kit, it is another new tooling.

Correct, I ijitially thought that Wolfpack's F-5A was an E, still with no relation to Dream Model's kit.

I don't see where it has been "confirmed" that the announced Wolfpack and the announced DreamModel F-5E kits are different or the same. 

 

It was reported as such on Britmodeller, although re-reading the discussion it was not an *absolute* confirmation.

 

At the very least there's no previous relationship between the two companies.  Wolpack (not to be confused with Wolfpak) is a Korean company, while DreamModel is Chinese (Shanghai based).  Wolfpack is a distributor for Skunkmodels and Kinetic out of Hong Kong, but doesn't have any ongoing relationships with other Chinese manufacturers (at least none publicly announced).

Nope, the Wolfpack F-5A kits are reboxes of the classic ESCI tooling (now owned by Italeri).

I contacted Wolfpack and they responded saying that the two kits are unrelated and that Wolfpack will announce a release schedule for their F-5E/F soon.

 

Well that's good to hear! Thanks Paul ;0) Fred K.

Looking forward to this kit.  Hopefully it’s as nice as their T-2
