    Kitty Hawk 1:48 Su-34

    It isn't Kitty Hawk who posted the photo, it was posted by a member of the FB group.

    Ok. It's not from the KH FB page but from a member of the KH Group in fact.

    Where did you get the kit from ? Standard kits don't seem to come with figures and Sorbtsiya resin parts.

    Could someone do comparaison photos between the HB and KH "canopy" parts please ?

    You can read the first four pages of the topic.

    He doesn't AFAIK. He's helping on the Su-33 2.0 that someone is supposed to release someday.

    Thanks for pointing out errors on the KH. They are there, the reader can decide if he can live with them or not. Now for me it doesn't change anything. If someone feels an urge to build an Su-34 model now without already owning the HB kit, the best option remains the Kitty Hawk kit as it's more accurate and generally cheaper. If there's no hurry, the modeller can wait for GizmoHobby/WhateverModel to release the ultimate in the [2018;+∞[ "timeframe".

    It's a bug of the HB kit...

    Yes but this stretched-S curve... ... looks weird and it's not a 30min work fix (reshaping and vacuforming needed).

    Windscreen footprint. It's pinched at the front on the real thing: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Russia-Air-Force/Sukhoi-Su-34-Su-32FN/1625174/L The pinch is there in KH: Less pinch in HB, front windscreen base is too wide: I don't have the kits to verify but I'm pretty confident what can be seen on the drawings is on the kits.

    Nothing. The only thing that I've noticed so far is the missing APU exhaust flap and it isn't a deal breaker to me. I'm less demanding when the retail price is reasonable perhaps. I've ordered the KH kit from LuckyModel but they haven't received it yet. Now I didn't buy the HB kit because the windscreen and "canopy" (quotes because it's fixed) looked off to me. The HB windscreen profil seems a little curved, the framing at its base seems too thick and it make the windscreen too short relative to the "canopy". I find paying 100USD for a model that has a weird "face" difficult.

    No APU exhaust then. Oh well AM producers will fix that.

    Re-work ? The KH nose was fine in 2016.

    Well... he has an air intake and an exhaust too 😛

    I'm no Su-34 specialist but I believe that the plane on the photo is not equipped with an APU.
