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.
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.
Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.
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.
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.
