Just arrived - the latest kit from the Ukrainian enterprise of Modelsvit... the Myasischev M-55 'Geophysica' high-altitude observation aircraft. With each new release, Modelsvit are raising the bar for moulding quality - the crispness and engraved surface detail is simply stunning. Page 3 of the 12-page instruction booklet - note the 22-part K-36 ejection seat construction. Page 10 showing the painting and decal-placement guide. The superbly printed decal sheet - those sponsors logos are all perfectly readable! The parts are crisly moulded in light grey plastic - with stunning engraved surface detail. Modelsvit have captured the shape of the double-curvature laminar-flow long-span wing superbly. Open or closed canopy options are included - note the parts for the K-36 ejection seat. Self-adhesive masks for the canopy and wheel hubs are provided - as is this etched-brass sheet of parts. More photos of the rest of the sprues are here:- http://www.flankers-site.co.uk/model_m-55_modelsvit.html This close-up photo shows off the delicate engraved panel detail perfectly... Finally, to whet your appetite, here's the real thing I photographed at MAKS 2012.... I can't wait to get started on this kit - it will make an interesting companion to Modelsvit's previously released M-17 'Stratosphera'... Ken
In October this year Modelsvit is to release the M-55 Geophisica. A big one with a wing span of 520mm so try to find space for it. The line of Su-17’s is continuing with an early M3 version. Well it is still with the Ljulka engine so we will have to wait for the R-29 version further. The M4 is also in the pipeline. the paint schemes in the box And a bit of view of the kit Modelsvit had few hints on their fake book about future releases. "Be advised that till the end of this year we are planning to release 3 "western" kits in 1/48 - P-51H Mustang, Messerchmitt Bf-109D1, Bf-109C3...Next year to be released at least 5 western warplanes kits, both in 1/72 and 1/48 scale."
