I wish that either Leading Edge would reissue their 1/48 sheet for natural metal Canadian variants, or someone else would do one. I made one out of a Hobbycraft kit many years ago: it was a LOT of work to correct at least some of the shape defects and get it all to settle down under the Alclad. I'd like to do it again to a higher standard.

 

Don't know if this helps, but this set includes a bare metal Canadian example: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MKD48008

I just built a Hobbycraft with the new Caracal decal sheet as an 81st hack. Very happy with it. Started friday night after Hannants told me the decals were posted - all done by tuesday lunchtime - NMF and all.

I'd imagine Canuck Models will release a CT-133 sheet fairly soon.  He's already released the camo version.

Not sure if this has been covered elsewhere but I just got my GWH Limited Edition T-33A 'RoCAF' kit and not only have they included some new resin aerials but they have also remodelled Sprue A and the fuselage halves in particular. The single pitot probe has gone and been replaced with small blade aerial on the top and bottom of the nose and the NACA inlets seen on many late model T-33s have now been added to the nose panels along with some new grilles.

Thanks for this news of the updated version, I'm yet to get my hands on one of these but this is the version I'll keep my eyes out for.

Wez,

 

Please bear in mind that the Great Wall Hobby Limited Edition kits (including the T-33A 'RoCAF' kit that I have referred to above) do not seem to make it to distributors in the UK. As I am sure you know, there are several UK/European distributors of the 'standard' range but I have had to source all of my Limited Edition kits, including the MiG-29 'Luftwaffe Farewell', F-15C Eagle 'Capt Hwang' and this one, from distributors in the Far East. It is possible that GWH will release another standard boxing for a 'late version ?' but they are not the most prolific of manufacturers when it comes to follow on versions, although the MiG-29 family is an exception. Don't get me wrong,  I really like their kits but I tend to err on the side of caution and if a Limited Edition boxing contains the additional (or adjusted) parts necessary to produce the variant I want, I tend to go ahead and order it.

This kit looks waaaay more accurate than the HB atrocity. Too bad they won't release the p/f-80:rain:
