Got this one yesterday from Toyco, the kiddos (including the biggest kid) wanted to spend their xmas money and I nabbed the below for a fraction f what it is elsewhere.


From the few reviews and builds I have read online it is currently the most accurate TUSK II SEP.v2 Abrams out there. It even as the nonslip molded on the hull and turret parts.

I wasn't going to say a word. I managed to score the Jango Fett Finemolds kit in 1/72 for $30 off Evil bay, just looking out for the Boba Fett version now, been after it for a few years now.

$30 is a steal for the finemolds one. I would love to get them but don't fancy the $300 or up they normally go for.

And then there's this one...



Normal price in the Netherlands is € 120, which translates to roughly 200 NZD......:woohoo:

I picked it up for € 50 (less than half the price..)

Got this for Christmas from my brother. I've always like these planes, I think the reason is that it has the unusual factor about it.

Good old AN-2. Does it come with North Korean markings? If so, you could slap some rocket pods on it and do a north korean ground attack colt... Have always looked at it but never pulled the trigger but you are right, has that weird factor to it.

Edit: Scratch that, just found it doesn't.

Had this nice little honey show up at my door step very recently. Nice looking kit, pitty about the office tho...a tad lacking, but cant use any AM as per the rules of the build.
2018 Group Build for Manawatu Scale Model Club. Dunno if i'll get time to build it as am very busy trying to get my business up and running properly.
Wanted to put her into USAF Aggressor scheme but 2 Bobs dont print them anymore and cant find anything online, so its the equivalent option, that of the JASDF Aggressor schemes from DXM Decal. Great looking birds I must say.

Had this turn up today from Hobby City. Not bad for $82! Wouldn't mind doing it in an RNZAF Scheme but finding decals for this version will be rather hard :(

Nice Fritz! I nearly bought that kit from them before xmas when it was going for $104. I think Montex might do a set of masks for an RNZAF bird.

Cool Fritz! I have the same kit...Interested to see how you tackle it! I was thinking about replacing mine with a "G" though...Or just do both!

I've got a Hase G1/2 to do as Rudel's bird. They are a good fitting kit with decent OOB detail.

After reading several good build reviews about the Kittyhawk Su-35, I decided to grab one. Less than a week from China through Evilbay.

The original boxing only had 2 major concerns, the exhausts were molded straight which is correct when it is powered up or flying but at rest they droop down and inwards slightly and only the prototype and early production examples had the flare launchers on the underside of the tail stingers, most examples now have them on the upper side.
This boxing not only has all the original parts and decals but also adds new resin parts for correct exhaust nozzles and stinger as well as resin weighted wheels and 2 pilot figures, one seated and one walking.

The photo doesn't do it justice but the resin is very finely detailed, the exhausts are very thin (and fragile) but them, the wheels and pilot figures all look very good. I will do the eggplant russian scheme which uses the original tail stinger.
The detail on the rest of the kit is very good, almost tamiya f-14 like detail and finesse. From the builds I have followed the fit is likewise almost tamiya-esque for the most part. You also get 3-4 sprues of weapons so enough to deck out several airframes if so required, including all current A2A missiles, the common A2G missles, rocket pods in several forms and also many dumb bombs and PGMs. PE rounds it out with seatbelts, a few airframe bits and sway braces for the weapons pylons.
I know GWH are bringing one out also but I think the Kittyhawk is a fantastic kit that the GWH one will have trouble beating.

:) :) Finally arrived. Darned Christmas mail delays. Several people have been reporting distorted parts and cracked clear parts with this kit. Mine looks all good.

Looks very nice - the Su-35, ditto the reviews I have read also about this boxing over the first one. Be great if this is a sign to come of future KH releases.

It does look very nice in the box, like I say it looks very similar to the tamiya f-14. Definitely far superior to anything else Kittyhawk have done previous. I dare say if this is what they can now achieve detail and fit wise, future releases from them should be very nice. It was cheap too (cheaper than the first release), about $86 NZD delivered and inside a week delivery.
