isn't HK models the company that got their start ripping a guy off for his B-25 cad?

 

You may want to get your facts right on that.....

If GWH can do it faster and better then they're free to do so..not stepping on toes or trying to preserve feelings doesn't work in a competitive market 

 

Exactly, McDonald’s isn’t the only fast food business that sells burgers.

We need to forget about F-14s, we're dying for another BF-109 in 1/48 !

And a P-51D!

Saw this photo which was allegedly taken at the All Japan Hobby Show happening now. Wonder if this one or AMK’s will be released first.

So much for new tool:

 

A-10C

Su-25 series

Su-27SM

Su-30 Series

Su-32/34 series

F-111 Series

B-26K Counter Invader

F-15SG

F-15SA

F-15K (Pit Road/DToys already)

 

And could this be the actual AMK kit itself? Ancient Alien theorists say "yes"!

looks good...I may add one to the pile just for comparison...what would be a shame is if we get the 2 D's and 2 A's but never get the B ....

Interesting they took the same canopy route as the AMK one

Its a little different than AMKs. Looks like GWH has a one piece clear part with framing that fits over it. AMK has a two part canopy with the pieces fitting between the frames. It'll be interesting to see if GWH can get the frame thin enough so it doesn't stick up above the clear part. On the real thing the frame appears to be flush with the clear sections.

Exactly, I’ve read a lot of people say they look the same. They don’t at all, AMKs is two piece.

This is why, even if it's a more old-school method, I prefer canopies and framing all molded together, at least on the outside. Otherwise, you risk having the frame stick-up or having to make the clear part thick enough to accomodate the framing, which leads to more visual distortion than is necessary. But hey, cool gimmicks sell.

Well the lack of news may be related to GWH taking the time to avoid shape bugs getting through.

:hmmm:Especially if those shape bugs getting through would give away the fact that this is in fact the AMK kit, indeed?

Take a good look at those wings; slats, flaps, bats, maps, farts and darts. What do you say?

Compare the detailing of the spoiler bays in the CAD renders... you'll see they've been done differently.

What is this list? A wish list or rumors of the kits under development by Great Wall Hobby?

Well! The CAD drawings are strikingly similar to AMK kit's parts. Wondering if AMK sold its research and moulds to GWH.

I'm still waiting for Kitty Hawk's announcement now that the new year has passed... especially now that GWH has blown the lid off of theirs. 😄

I like the concept of GWH, at least you don't have to worry about masking the  clear parts glass for the frame painting.
