I have to agree about the HB kit--it looks nicer than the Academy, and maybe even nicer than the R/M, but I'll still take Hasegawa every day of the week.

That said, this one turned out great. Awesome choice of markings, and I really like the weathering. Nice and dirty! :thumbsup:

Well Done!! Great Markings and weathering.

I like the HB Kit as well. Definitely goes together better than the HAS. Now if HAS was to re-tool.. May be a different story. Their molds are getting a little long in the tooth. All I can say is try it before U knock it...

Hello friends,

Thanks for all your kind words,

I have both HB and HAS kits on my stash, and i post a little comparisson between two Cats here: http://kitmaniac.com/site/?p=120

Im my opinion the P.E. landing gear and interior parts of the HB kit are better than Has kit, but the engine build on HB is impossible, the pieces not fit...

on the final, i give 9,0 in 1-10 scale of points. I just waiting for my HB F-14B arrives from Hobbyeasy to start my SANTACAT
