Minibase Su-33 1/48


Recommended Posts

It depends on what you are looking for, if we want to have a well detailed model in every corner of the plane without going to buy accessories then the price does not seem so expensive to me. No need to upgrade the cockpit ($ 15). the wheels ($ 10), the engines ($ 25), the landing gears ($ 25), various details that we usually have with EDUARDS ($ 20), the decal looks good to me too ($ 15). And I'm not going to count the armaments. We come to a total of $ 110 without the kit.

 

So fine I'm happy with it.

Its quite expensive for a 1/48 after including the shipping. But then its a very detailed kit and a lot of thought has gone into designing and packaging the kit. 

 

The price seems to be between Kitty Hawk and GWH Flanker kits, as far as I can see on the linked HobbyEasypage. Given the level of detail which seemingly rivals GWH, sounds quite fair, IMHO.

It seems fair. I agree. Looking at the Modelling News preview build, I m not convinced about the photo etch seat. I will swap it with the 3d printed seats or one from Aires. Photo etch can capture the seat cushion and belt details like resin can.

I agree too. If this level of quality can be expected in their subsequent releases, then I have no problems paying relatively more for it. Let them be rewarded for producing a quality product.

I have just paid for it on Hobbyeasy and the price with shipment fee (~82 euro) is just a little bit less then GWH Su-35 just after release in the same shop. So I think that kit will be rather expensive, close to the most expensive kits in that scale.

What about the current price of the GWH Su-27UB?

 

BTW, do you usually get charged customs fees on top of that?

Rather not. In my country custom fees for such small packets is just a lottery, sometime you pay something sometime not, usually I have paid nothing so I hope there will be the same this time.

Hi,

 

I got my kit today. Wow! Wow!

 

I have to say this is the most amazing kit I have ever owned. The details are simply amazing.

 

If you like the subject, buy one, two or three. You won't be disappointed.

 

My opinion is just based on the details, I can't tell about the fit because I haven't built it yet, but I believe it is worth what I paid for it.  You don't really need any aftermarket at all, not even decals.

 

Overall is a 10/10 kit.

 

Thanks,

 

Juan

Hi Juan,

 

Will it be possible for you to get pictures of the sprues?

 

 Thanks,

 

Eric

Can't wait to receive mine, and I don't think there are and miskate on the R-27, do you mean the two circle parts? I saw those on some picture reference on net.

 

Yes, there are three on the bottom side of R-27s and two on the bottom side R-73s, but the ones on R-73s are located on the flat protrusion so they're very easy to clean up. 

 

Having said that, the missiles seem to be even better detailed than GWH MiG-29 missiles and they're well aligned so I don't see the diagonal mold split on the missiles (unlike on the GWH ones, at least on my MiG-29 kit).

Having almost finished the Kinetic kit I'm wondering if I should have paid better attention to this thread and waited for the Minibase version.  Already from the test sprues in the link above it appears like it would be much easier to assemble than the Kinetic. I do have a lot of paint left over...hum..... 🙂
