  1. 1/72 - MiG-21 Fishbed by Eduard

    Maybe they just couldn't see any difference between the UM and MF noses?

    Well to be fair to Eduard, you only have to pay $33 if you're a foreigner. If you're Czech, they'll only charge you $20 for the kit.

    Pics of the build have started going up. Wonder if they'll include a jig to assemble the wheels? Price will likely be ¥65,000 - 70,000 (­£450 - 500/$610 - 660)
  4. That was my immediate thought, too. The catalogue doesn't say it's a new tool, it says it's a "new tool".

    Additionally... and starboard: Oh, and don't forget the air vent on the wing tip lights.
  6. The Sea Fury rumour thread 2

    There will also be more, um, thorough solutions for that issue. Nearly ready for starter's orders...

    I mean, that's been their standard practice for at least 15 years, so...

    From my (limited, museum) experience: for the mains, wheel wells are grey over Hawker yellow; gear legs are painted silver; gear doors are chromate green(? it's the same shade as inside the intakes) inside. Tail wheel is a mish-mash: well is grey inside, doors and retraction struts are yellow chromate inside; the upper strut is chromate green while the lower portion is a heavily chipped silver paint over chromate yellow. The same green can be seen inside the engine cowling. Again though, this is a museum aircraft, so YMMV.
  9. Yeah, it is. There's a reason AMK's first releases aped Kinetic.
  10. Resin is expensive and the kit is cheap.
  11. Whatever happened to 'don't judge anything until you have the actual kit in your hands?' Stupid decal flubs aside, I'm finding it more interesting that the kit can't be built with an open canopy. At all. That's an odd design decision. The parts layout is also pretty disheartening - that's a lot of common parts with the -2 booms, so it seems a lot less likely they'll follow up with a -1.
  12. Well the panel lines will certainly be finer than Airfix (though it'll probably be riveted, which many will count as a minus). Plus it will likely be followed up by a -1 in short order. So there's two material improvements.
  13. Looks like there are four of them, but it's a low-res, highly compressed JPEG so it's tough to tell for sure. I have no idea what kind/s of rapid prototyping machines Airfix runs or has access to, but it's possible they needed to break it down to fit a build envelope. Or to let them iterate smaller sections. I wouldn't read too much into it yet.
  14. Kinetic catalogue 2018 - online

    Seems to have a full interior, so it won't be as cheap as the 1/144 'curbside' kits. My guess is somewhere between the $60 of the Hawkeyes and the $100 of the 1/32 Hornet/1/24 Thunderbolts. Most likely on the higher end.
