New Su-34 in 1:72 from Zvezda?

Recommended Posts

Just saw this boxart on some modelling site.

Anyone knows, if this is gonna be a new tool, or just an Italeri rebox?

Some of us can spell!

That's a bit hypercritical - if you are refering to Mr Begemot's post (Kotey)

English isn't his first language - and I just wish my Russian was as good as his English.

Or do you mean some other spellings??

Yes, it will be old sprues with new decal (decal just now in print), so in this case - sorry, not new tools.

About my English - yes, i'm operate only school levell + some practic with computer. I'm know - my English is not perfect.

To quote Kotey from Britmodeller.....As i say it will be old model with new decal, sorry, but no mirical in this case.

And, as I posted on Britmodeller..........

The box art shows a recent Su-34 attacking a target in Syria - complete with upper wing fences, a Platan targeting system and an APU in the tailboom.

The Italeri kit has none of the above and needs considerable work to turn it into an up-to-date Su-34......

.... as I have done here.

So, in summary, it is the old Italeri kit - with new box art and decals - but nothing done to update it.

Without some work, you can't make it as per the box art - another case of misrepresentation?

Thank you, Ken.

Except English texts in my instructions. :bandhead2:

"Will work for beer" "Will correct English for decals" :)

Those iron bombs on the box art aren't included in the taleri mold, are they?

Cheers,

Andre

Just looked through their catalog, nothing new jet wise really other than Su-33 being released next year. All the other stuff is carryovers from last years catalog.

No, but you'll find two of its in each MiG-29 9-13 models.

So, how about next marketing plans: If you'll buy one 7298 Su-34 and two 7278 MiG-29 models - you'll have four bombs for Su-34 model (except two fine MiG-29 models)?

Someone remember what they did for their KA-50SH?

It was announced as a newer tool or just update/new decals?

Although the kit may not be up to date, here is an opportunity for the aftermarket community to do it.

Kotey, your English is fine. I have no problems understanding you.

I have a policy, I would never say anything to anybody on the Internet, that I'm not willing to tell them to their face. Maybe more people should adopt this policy.

Now, Andrey, I don't know about others but that is exactly what I might just do! :D

Thanks for the heads up :thumbsup:

Duh! You're right, of course. :bandhead2: Stoopid comment; fixed it; apology posted separately. Wasn't picking on Kotey particularly, but it looks that way for sure...consider me suitably chastised.

Man, I bet this kit will sell well in Russia, even though it's an Italeri rebox. I remember Guy from Linden Hill Imports posting on Facebook a Russian news article about Zvezda, and how they've seen rising sales of modern aircraft kits due to the conflict in Syria. And since the Su-34 is a cornerstone of that air campaign, I bet Zvezda will see a good profit from this kit.

Asked on their FB page but got no response,I really wish they will do the same thing they did when KA-50SH happened even if his nose was wrong but at least everything else was fine

They've not updated their facebook page since last winter...I think they really only post on VK nowadays.
