Recommended Posts

Reviving the previously nuked thread. Can someone please post the latest updates that were previously on here. Thanks. Let's keep this one on topic.

No way. It's definitely the moderators job to delete the trolls messages but not a whole thread. I really dislike the way my original message - I opened the KH 1/32nd M2000 thread - and information work about this future kit were deleted. So count me out.

V.P.

Infos are still available and updated here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234995392-132-dassault-mirage-2000bc-by-kitty-hawk-cads-release-in-2016/

Anyone got any updates on this? I've seen a few new CAD images floating around the webs but no release date except for vague references to the "end of 2018".

Please release this kit, but for goodness sake have it fit better than your T-45C 1/48 kit. That thing is a bear and makes me think twice about building the KH 1/48 EA-6B (which has well documented problems) I have in the stash or any other KH kit for that matter. I enjoy building models, not fixing mismatched parts molded incorrectly.

Kittyhawk didn't release a T-45C or EA-6B, Kinetic did and they're two different companies.

Yeah, I was scratching my head on that one.

I asked about this on their FB page, but they've got moderating turned on to prevent the anti-KH trolls from smearing them from SMCG.  No posting or reply so far to me.

Scale Model Critique Group. A facebook page run by Jim DiCeasare and Matt McDougal and a few others who take it upon themselves to "critique" peoples work.  There was a situation a few years back where the circle jerk brain trust there decided Kitty Hawk was the worst of the worst after KH posted a meme that rustled their jimmies (it was mocking people who do nothing but complain when a company releases a new kit and isn't their cup of tea). 

They took that as the worst personal affront and declared war, sounded the trumpets and proceeded to begin to troll and mock KH everywhere they could on the net.

Yes, I'm always hoping for this one, but I doubt the kit will be released later this year. So we hope that it will arrive soon in the first six months on 2019, both in the single-seater  and two -seater versions.

Actually SMCG is all about critique, and considering you're using terms like "circle jerk brain trust" shows where you're coming from. The group has always been all about modelers improving their work, and sometimes looking at online builds and critiquing them as well. there was one instance where a modeler on this website was unfairly mocked, and that situation was dealt with and that hasn't happened since. SMCG is one of the tightest moderated modeling pages online. And actually the nonsense Kitty Hawk threw out online about both of them stems from Matt McDougall having the temerity to build the KH 1/48 Su-17 online and point out its' build issues and poor engineering. For the American rep for Kitty Hawk to go after people online and go so far as to start a Facebook page dedicated to slamming them, well that's not very professional is it?

Little. Plastic. Airplanes.

That's exactly right Trigger. It's all about plastic airplane models, and the very notion that Jonathan and others feel the need to denigrate other people just because of plastic model airplanes is pathetic. Even more pathetic is when someone who ostensibly represents a company starts a Facebook page just to name call others because they disagree with their opinion. What can I tell you?

The "Friends of Kitty Hawk" page wasn't started by anyone from Kitty Hawk whatsoever. SMCG actively bashed people left right and center and *anyone* who dared leak posts about said bashing was immediately banned. 

The only reason SMCG made contrition for bashing the build here is because they got caught on that one and had their dirty laundry exposed here.

Aw hell, I'm feeling generous..here ya go..

What can I say...SMCG did manage to get KH to shut off the ability of people to post things to their page without moderation. 

Remind me again who was childish here?
