Better 1/144 Tu-160?

Recommended Posts

Which 1/144 Tu-160 kit is the better one, Trumpeter or Zvezda?

Thanks,

Mike

I've only seen the Trumpeter kit in the box and it looked ok for what it was at the time. Sometimes the Zveda plastic feels a little grainy, but wouldn't know in this matter.

The Zvezda one is lovely.

Somewhat more fiddly to assemble but both a lovely.

I am uncertain of the finer points of accuracy but they are both nice toolings.

Zvezda has full weapons bay.

Both are great.

I have never held/seen the trumpeter one, but i have built Zvezda Tu-160 and from what i remember i liked it. One needs to fix up a couple of panellines around the nose area tho.

Zvezda Tu-160 has better details and accuracy in the front landing gear, and weapons bay.

Trumpeter Tu-160 has better "surface details" and burner cans, but has no weapons bay.
