It reminds me of "Song"'s prototype when he was working at Trumpeter.

Come one Kitty Hawk, don't give up your project ! There's no way I'm going to buy the HB kit.

Yes but the CAD data for projects like this will have been left behind when he moved, it won't have gone with him. 

They are Chinese, he, he....

Song had to start from scratch for our new Su kits.

 

Trumpeter owned the CAD model I guess.

 

Could you please confirm that the KH kit will be released soon ?

Something wrong with the clear parts in a TrumpyBoss kit? It's comforting to hear that - even in these turbulent times - there are some things you can rely on.

The Su-34 may not be "bug-free" also...

From KH FB in April 2016. Windscreen looks deeper (higher) and it goes "into the nose".

 

That's right! I completely agree as well. The forward fuselage on the Hobby Boss kit looks quite like that on the old Smer/Oez/KoPro kit! Don't you blokes agree?

That is actually a really nice boxart. Not terribly interesting but well drawn etc. Judging by the profiles, seems they got the profile "break" more correct than KH?

Yes but KH's windscreen looks better I think.

I like it, I like it a lot. 

 

I'm going to buy it, build it, glue the canopy and the windscreen on, paint it, finish it and put it in my display cabinet so I can watch and enjoy it everytime I walk past it. 

 

My god I love this hobby.

i'll go with the Kitty Hawk for that one!

even if the fuselage curve is slightly doubtful, the windshield area just bothers me too much on the HobbyBoss kit. (if i have to choose between two twins, and there is one with heavy strabismus...i would choose the other!!!...sorry)

the HB boxart might be nicer... but, boxes tends to end in the recycle bin... so it doesn't weight much in the decision.
