  1. It may have a refueling probe too. Otherwise the fuselage should be pretty much identical.
  2. Kittyhawk is great. If it wasn't for Great Wall Hobby they would have been the best source for all those Sukhois. Also they care to invest on subject no other company does. So big KUDOS to them. I am pretty confident they can beat this Zvezda 1/48 Su-57.
  3. Same as the main, lower fuselage camo color.
  4. Looks amazing. 3D parts can be better than resin as KA Models proves for exhausts (Their F-15 exhausts are better than anyone else's offers). If these are at KA-Model quality/detail levels then this is very exciting. I am already building one Mig-31 and this is motivating me to build a second one. And by the by, 3D parts would be stronger than equally thick plastic or resin... 3D seems to be the future.
  5. Details on this kit are abysmal. period. For a nice wash you have to scribe everything. Still looks very good from 4 feet though.. hope it sells really well so they may have extra cash to do a 1/48 mig1.44 😜
  6. I hate the nose of Academy one so wouldn't have built that one. I love Has. I have 4. The only aftermarkets worth buying are the seat (especially if the cockpit is open, optional eduard color cockpit, I just love them so good for lazy/talentless builders like myself) and weapon bay details if you are going to built the bays open. If the canopy and bays are closed nothing worth buying.
  7. Sometimes you make me certain that you just argue for the argument sake 😄
  8. Main lacking of the kit is numerous rivets and pronounced panel lines. That is the point. Not that difficult to grasp. Easy to fix for some, impossible for others 🙂
  9. Thank you so much for sharing these. !! Very good to know the content. It reminds me the models which were designed /produced in 1990s :)
  10. I have both and no contest, KA Models wins easily in a side-by-side comparison. On its own, GWH exhaust are very good too. They do have all actuator arms as a separate and rather smart single piece. They actually look very good on a finished model, the best of any F-15 model out there. However, the exhaust have an accuracy issue: they are a little bit too long, ~3-5mm.
  11. Su-47 Berkut!!!! 1/48, please! Then Mig 1.44 😄
  12. These ebay sellers are model shop owners in China so yes they probably know when they are going to receive the models so I am pretty confident when they know the date for he shipment. They put ebay listing up hence pretty confident they will deliver in a reasonable time frame. For me it never exceeded 1 month and most of the time the longest holdup is with USPS processing at the "border" which once was 3 weeks. Otherwise delivery to where I live in US takes 1-2 weeks. I just go to ebay, pick he cheapest option with more than 100 reviews and that is it :)
  13. I ordered all my great wall hobby kits on ebay directly from China because it is cheaper and so far so good. No problems in 5 kits, Mig-29, F-15s and Su-35s.
  14. Su-25 doesn't excite me 😜 Immediate follow up will be obviously the single seater. Then maybe early version with different tail etc. Mid term, I am hoping for canard flankers. I think there is an F-14 project, too, right? Long term, I would like to see 5th generation fighters. Any would do, J-20, Su-57, F-22, F-35C and my all time wish list leader Mig 1.44 😄
  15. Excellent! Only minor problem I have is those 4-piece exhausts... I don't get them. Why not smt like this??
