Wow interesting news. Was there not someone else doing an Su-34? Hobbyboss? With all these new Russian releases it sure is getting hard to keep track. Not that I am complaining as the subjects have been on my wanted list for eons.

Yeah that's a very good news, there's no doubt the KH's kit should be much detailing than the Trumpeter's.

Russian now don't know NATO codenames of airctafts, so Su-34 have own nicknames - Ugly Duck (for terrible at design look dark grey painting), Duck-bill (duck nose of aircraft), Hellduck (lethal to enemies).

I know everyone is excited for this, but I hate to say it the Su-34 is UGLY!!! They took one of the most graceful looking jet fighters (Su-27) and made look like a oversize duck!

Stone me to death, but...

<heresy>

I'd rather prefer a quarterscale Su-35S than some hellish poultry...

I think that is a big part of the charm of this bird. Much like the A-10, it is a beautiful disaster. So ugly that it is cool. What makes this different from the A-10, though, is that it is indeed derived from a graceful, beautiful aircraft. The Fullback is the Mr. Hyde to the Flanker's Dr Jekyll.

Purposeful bad-assery. :thumbsup:

These things I know:

1: The Trumpeter one will be totally inaccurate!

2: The Kitty Hawk one will be totally un-buildable!

3: Devout prayer and fasting will deliver us a perfect 1/48 kit from Tamiya! (Or not.)

There, my trusty crystal ball has saved us all some valuable time...

One thing I THINK I know: should have passed on that 'bargain' 1/72 Italeri item with a shedload o' resin. Bottoms! :boohoo:

*Edit*: Is it me, or do the zorsts in that render look like vectored thrust jobbies? :blink:

That's what I was thinking........ and the Su-34 doesn't have TVC nozzles.

please for the love of all that is holy, leave out the engines and separate access panels. make the kit buildable , the correct shape, and give us a full compliment of weapons. I will buy 2

How can such a awesome jet be given so nasty painjobs? Is there any scheme for it where either my eyes wont puke or my brain wont spontaneously hemorrhage?
