  1. Hello, The Fly kit you mention is nice, it features fine recessed details, a nicely faceted windshield, resin antennas and photoetched parts but it suffers from slightly too big main wheels/too thick main gears/too fat engines and too thick wing root. It is not necessarily that visible but once I saw it, I could not "un-see" it. Anyway it still builds into a very nice DC-9-30 kit. The Eastern Express kit is IMHO the best, very refined, beautiful recessed details (but fragile nose gear and some flashes here and there), it improves on all the weak points on both Airfix and Fly kits but can come quite pricey if you order it outside Russia. You also have the Authentic Airliners resin kit which is as nice and accurate than the Eastern Express kit but difficult to obtain and comes with no decal sheet. I went with the whole Eastern Express DC-9/MD-80/MD-90 collection and did not regret it. Cheers !
  2. I read that the Kinetic was superior in accuracy but the AMK was the most detailed one. No idea who is right who is wrong, I have not checked. I have to say I am always impressed by AMK's molding quality and detailing, especially on the Magister kit. Lots of details that will not be seen once assembled but still nice to have them. If I were to build a Magister, I would go with the AMK kit, or the DACO 1/32 kit to be released this or next year.
  3. Got it ! I had in mind the 2007 ref. 05115 kit, you must have been talking about the 2015 ref. 05126 kit wich appears much better, my bad.
  4. Really ? Then I missed the boat. I was certain their last Mk. 1 was tooled in like 2010 or something like this, chunky mouldings and average part definition, to me it appeared like pure junk. I will go check on Scalemates which mould you mentioned.
  5. Any business is cash-driven so I guess they tool what they think will sell. Besides, the last early Mk. 1 Spitfire tooled was from Airfix (like 10 or 12 years ago) and IMHO absolute rubbish, so there was a need for an early Mk. 1 Spitfire. I have the Tamiya one which I enjoy tremendously but it sadly does not offer the 2 blades propeller and flat canopy.
  6. Looks very nice. Their splendid Tempest also featured positive rivets on the aft fuselage and I liked this very much. On this Spitfire, these look every bit as nice as on the Tempest.
  7. It appeared quite obvious.
  8. Hello, I have 2 kits, ref. 72118, condition is new. Feel free to message me if still interested. Cheers 😉
  9. The detailing and part finesse is absolutely amazing, moulding quality looks splendid ! This kit looks to be really something. Well done Aviation Art !!!
  10. In 1/144 scale, I have their Bombardier CRJ-200, Canadair Challenger and Bombardier CRJ-700. If I remember correctly, the CRJ-200 was their first venture in 1/144 scale. A nice little kit that felt a bit crude, think of short-run, low moulding definition on small parts but still very buildable. The Challenger was a MASSIVE improvement, especially in the small part moulding definition. The CRJ-700 again added a bit more finesse to the moulding quality, to the point I consider it as good as a Zvezda kit (so much better than Revell's stuff). Decals could be glossier, they are actually uniformly flat. This 757 kit should be quite something, and I too hope for early and late RR engines. Silver Seraph
  11. Hello, Big Plane Kits just announced a Boeing 757-200 kit in 1/144 : at long last a modern and accurate 757 kit in styrene. https://m.facebook.com/BigPlanesKits/photos/a.1510613519216386/2595147927429601/?type=3&theater These guys really rock !!!
  12. Hello, Big Plane Kits are to release a Boeing 777-300ER in 1/72 : http://bigplaneskits.com/blog/ 3D design hopefully completed this year 2020 so hopefully released in 2021. I cannot wait : I was about to order Modelsvit's 1/72 Il-86 for its detailing level but I will now patiently wait on this gigantic 777 kit. BPK's Boeing 737-200, Canadair Challenger CL-600 and Bombardier CRJ-700 are IMHO absolute stunning kits. The following Airbus A319, Boeing 737-800 and 777-300ER kits should be equally mouth-watering.

  13. You leave me with the feeling there is something personal between you and this Airfix designer. You made your point numerous times on many different forums, with sentences written in capital letters, bold letters, red letters, sometimes all 3 at the same time, that this kits was not at your taste. I will not go that far saying "no kit is perfect then it should be accepted as is" but... I am curious as to what you want to achieve by repeating the same things numerous times here in there ("they had access to the real MiG-17 but they flawed, why, Why, WHY, etc") ? I am genuinely curious.
  14. I just checked the pictures on FB, full definition, the detail treatment is amazing, perfectly defined and not too wide. I can spot an improvement with every new release from them. It is nice to get exotic subjects from these new brands, but at such overall quality level ? Well done Modelsvit !!!
  15. Sukhoï Su-57 😱🤤 ?!?!?! Lockheed C-130 😱🤤 ?!?!?! 1/144 stuff 😱🤤 ?!?!?! That is for sure one hell of a nice program 👍🏼 !
