    Strange colored F-15 bare metal panels

    Smt is weird about this picture. Maybe there is HDR treatment or smt. Even Japanese roundel looks brown. Trust the other pictures of the bird if you can. But it is a hobby and whatifs are fun too.

    Kinetic Su-33 need nose weight?

    I've just checked my finished model. I didn't use resin and it is not as stable as I remember. You should add just a little weight to be sure. Probably you wont need it but better to be safe.

    Heey, dont take offence. GWH is my favorite model company. I think GWH kit is better (also 50% more expensive) but no need to bury the Kittyhawk kit either! GWH main wheel bays are too shallow and cockpit "wall" is too thin. These are tiny things which I dont think important but just saying.... Other little "problems" (not accuracy), for my taste, horizontal stabilizers' details are not apparent. Also, the 4 piece exhaust is not ideal compared to Kittyhawk. Kittyhawk resin exhausts are nicer than 4-piece offering from GWH. Overall my take is, if you don't care about the price go with GWH, but there is nothing wrong to buy kittyhawk either.

    Much better details, yes. Better fitting, yes. More accurate, not really. There are inaccuracies with GWH too. And overall shape and dimensions are very good on kittyhawk. With Chinese boxing which comes with resin exhaust, it is not a bad kit at all. Also, cheapest Kittyhawk kit you can find is ~$60 whereas cheapest GWH one is around $90. So kittyhawk Chinese boxing is a respectable option.

    GWH has F-15K. It is under the name of d-corporation and with some academy weapons. And I am sure F-15E will be released too. We already have F-15I.

    GWH F-15C Oregon ANG kit not having missiles?

    Frankly, I am actually ok with their approach. They have kid of 3 "tiers" for their F-15 releases. "Regular" releases with weapons and quite a few decal options. $$$ "Lite" releases with no weapons (or no single piece missiles) and less/different decal options. $$ "Special" releases with crazy decals, no weapons (or no single piece missiles): $$ or $$$. Especially for me, this is perfect because with busy decals I rather have no weapons on my models and releases do not become more expensive.
