I've always been partial to Flankers... but come on, how can you hate the F-16?  It's like the sports car of the fighter jet world. 

Word!

F-16 is just ok looking. But, I really like F-2 with larger dimensions and that sea blue camouflage a lot. 

 

anyhow.. did they release any plastic pictures of the Su-27 yet?

Unfortunately no. Despite my deepest hopes this seem to be going out in late spring. At least.

True, I was even considering building F-2B, it looks a bit better. The only F-16 Icould accept on my shelf is greek Zeus!

F-16 is not a sports car among jets - SR-71 was. F-16 is like a Passat B5 for european automotive.

 

Don't you think one of these camos would be cool? :)

The 27UB (and any other Flanker variants made by GWH) will be one sale Kittyhawk will not get from me!! There was no contest between the 2 brands with the Su-35. I don't doubt the rest of the Flanker kits will be the same! Keep it up GWH!! Fantastic kits!

And so we passed already half of April. Are there any news regarding the kit?

Despite the global pandemic, Great Wall Hobby was labeled an essential service, and though it has cost many lives, many workers with their last gasp proclaimed "must... release... Flanker..." as they all diligently worked toward their spring-time release date.

 

 

Or, everything is shut down and I wouldn't expect any news for a while.

I don't know, I am not among chosen ones, I work normally like whole year before and wouldn't call aircos essential service. Have seen other modellingcompanies which stated that either they hang the business temporary or work just as normal, haven't seen GWH stating anything. There are persons close to GWH, maybe they have some info to pass.

 

Stop spreading panic.

I doubt we will see this kit or any new kits till this pandemic stops

It is indeed essential from my perspective. Without my models, my mental health would have taken a serious hit.

Surely you must have a stash if you’re a real modeller! Sorry, had to for the humor.
