1/48 F-22A from Ilovekit - New or rebox?


Recommended Posts

Turns out there is a similar post over at Britmodeller, and from that it appears to be new moulds, but not confirmed? One comment suggest it might be Hasegawa as the part counts are in the same region, while Academy is ~180ish. Will be interesting to follow for sure

Interesting. The closest existing kit would be Hasegawa baed on part count. But I am unaware of Hasegawa letting their kits reboxed under a different brand except for ProModeler F-4 and A-4. Has there been many others? Also, don't want to get all geo-political, but not entirely sure if Hasegawa would do this with a Chinese company.  I'm leaning toward this being a new tool.

Sprues as on display at the 5th IPMS Summer Scale Model Exchange Competition in Xi'an, Shaanxi (China).

And three generic US weapons sprues. Not a lot can be used on the Raptor at all currently... Only makes boxes bigger, shipping more expensive and prices increase overall. Sigh.

But I confess being much more interested by the Shenyang J-8I in the lower part of the image, 1/48th ?? :analintruder:

Conversion ? To my knowledge there's no quarter scale kit available from the J-8I "Finback-A".
