1/48 Xuntong SB bomber?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard ANYTHING on when this is supposed to be released? Did they nip it in the bud after the CAD drawings, or what?

Thanks

Wow! I didn't realize the wings on the SB-2 were so long in comparison to the fuselage length!

I very much like what I'm seeing.

I only hope that the panel lines are finer than on Il-4.

Anyone fancies the MPM vac SB 2M105? Cheap :P

The answer is in pictures. Just horrible, as before. They should really stay out of this business. Let's hope for Zvezda issue one day.

I'm praying the panel lines on that don't look like what will be on their Il-28. Shades of Matchbox.

True, that's something we shouldn't have to deal with on a $50+ kit, but I'll still grab one first chance I get and just shoot an extra coat or two of primer to soften them up.

I've never understood that. A coat or two of primer a.) isn't going to cover them up (we're talking microns thick), and b.) will only, if anything, make them softer and musher looking. They need to be sharp and subtle to start with.

IT will be sharp when you sanded it wet.

We are talking about 0.2mm sprayed in some layers.
