Awesome that there is the option to build both SA versions. :smt023

I don't know the manufacturer, what is the general plastic quality and detail like?

Dean, I've never used Special Hobby before but have heard they are pretty good.
I'll post updates once my order has arrived, ordered two so I can make both versions :)

Best Model of the F1 on the market (all scales). I am just not sure what kind of inlet cones this kit has since the SAAF F1 had the Mirage 2000 style inlet cones as far as I remember,

The SAAf kits has resin bits for the correct Mouse on the intakes, as well as antennas and and for the RWR components.
The boxing includes all the normal sprues from a standard Special Hobby kits, with an extra sprue for the Nose and other parts for the AZ. Then some resin bits as mentioned above.

The molds are completely Special hobby, from their current recent releases. Complete new tooling from 2016
