  1. pretty sure the sdbs are GWH, I am referring to the Aim-120s. Surprised GWH didn't mould its own.
  2. Yes, it's the generic Kinetic GBU/AIM-120/AIM-9 sprue. At least it is the darker grey plastic, the earlier dark yellow plastic Kinetic used in the SUFA boxings was truly awful with horrendous sprue gates. Not sure those AIM-120s and GBUs are quite up to the quality of the actual GWH weapons though. Strange choice from a company [GWH] that usually supplies high quality one-piece weapons?
  3. I watched the Flory review and another on Youtube which compared the sprues individually. Lots of differences in molding approach, and details. The thing that struck me immediately was the difference in the size of some of the decals, with the Trumpy markings being clearly a great deal larger than the comparable Airfix markings. I am sure others will find a great deal more differences, both positive and negative. With three Airfix Sea Vixens in the stash, I think I will wait for the initial price to drop...
  4. Quite good to see this about to be released, as once postage kicks in for the quite weighty [1.8kg] Hobbyboss Su-34 kit, the difference in price to me is 108NZ for the KH vs 183NZ for the HB kit, enough for me to wait and hope???? that the KH is accurate enough for me. Don't really need all the weapons that come with the HB Su-34. Will see.
  5. In the original comment thread, within the Facebook post, Cybermodeller reported that a ZM F-4E/F/G is next 'according to ZM'. I cannot find that comment thread, within the post as it is posted now, but it certainly was there when I shared the FB post to another modelling group two days ago.
  6. Yes, I haven't come across much yet in terms of other's analysis, the only other material online, with some links to started builds is here on LSP http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=66853&page=18
  7. Yes, same for me in New Zealand, often more competitively priced for some kits than Hobbyeasy or Sealmodel [for 1/32 kits].
  8. Well the RNZAF roundel colour has certainly changed a bit in the facebook images.
  9. I hope it sells well. Great to see someone take a punt etc...and if it sells through Hannants, it is at least accessible to us in the colonies

    Cheers, I have a set of the True Details ones, but they look to be out of production now regrettably. Thanks, will take a look at the Maestro ones.

    yep agree Giorgio, the True Details resin ones [AIM-26s] are quite rare now

    Kitty Hawk's 1/48th Scale Su-22M-3 & M-4

    Looking forward to seeing what Stenka [Cold War Studio] finally comes up with for the KH Fitter. His stuff has got better and better with each release. The MiG-23BN correction set is superb value [21Euros] given what is included:resin, etch, canopies and a disc of high quality pics. Impressive. Hope the Fitter update is of similar value/quality.
  13. http://rnzaf.proboards.com/thread/13855/skyhawks-history-rnzaf-skyhawk is a good starting point [at least for RNZAF Skyhawks]. As is Lots of interesting info throughout the board also.
