Ordered this from Japan back in September, but just got it a couple weeks ago (apparently packages had been delayed by the typhoon). It's a Hasegawa model of Shin's F-20 from Area 88.
 This model assembled nicely. Didn't take much in the way of body putty to fill in cracks. The only weapons were a couple of sidewinders, and it has options for drop tanks under the wings, but I went with empty pylons so I can add weapons later.

 The hard part was masking off the areas for the blue. I had to trace the contour of the stripe decals on paper, then cut them out as guides for drawing the parts with a pencil. I then masked off the white and used Blue Angel blue (recommended in the instructions). The decal sheet came with 2 other versions of the unicorn , so I may get the model of his F-8 also, which for some reason doesn't come with the logos.
