  1. This is a great addition and detail looks quite good. I hope they also release a few versions of seated pilot.
  2. KH never took customer feedback and it showed with their oft repeated mistakes in decals, instructions and parts. So may be end was there anyway.
  3. Jan 2020 article but still good to read https://finance.yahoo.com/news/1997-merger-paved-way-boeing-090042193.html
  4. Agreed. This was not an issue with one or two kits. Every kit had omissions. Decals not in correct color. Wrong markings. Parts missing. Not correct shape of certain part. Instruction steps missing. You name it, they had it. I have just two of their Su-17/22 kits in stash. I have not heard more criticism of the kits from one manufacturer for all the things we know of in our modeling world that could go wrong, and more. The surface detail is not bad though but just bad execution and lazy production.
  5. Does anyone have this Cutting Edge set lying around that I can use? https://www.scalemates.com/kits/cutting-edge-modelworks-cec48284-f-104-canopy-demisters-and-open-drogue-chute-door--202034
  6. I need some good reference pictures of the cockpit frame where there is some kind of pipe going around the inside of the cockpit frame. This is where this build is stuck currently. Is it a pipe for pressurizing the cockpit or is it air conditioning system? Also, is there any after market that makes that part?
  7. I have never been part of group build. I wanted to build M M Alam's F-86 Sabre which shot down 9 IAF jets in one sortie. I have the markings but they are very old. Lets see if I can build it. https://www.badassoftheweek.com/m-m-alam
  8. Yes. Sure. But there is so little information available for the equipment they use. For example, Pakistan is the biggest operator of Mirages and there are so many modifications in each of the models. Kinetic kit is a good start but we dont know what modifications we will need to do. Same for Trumpeter F-6. Pakistan's F-6 has MB seat and was able to carry US ordnance. But the information about cockpit is nowhere to be seen.
  9. https://www.themodellingnews.com/2021/04/preview-minibase-add-more-firepower-to.html#more Su-33 with Moskit anti-ship missile. New Minibase kit.
  10. Does this mean it has already been released?
  11. Very interesting thread. Thanks for sharing. Pictures I have never seen before.
  12. Yeah but not everyone has a Facebook account. I hope we see more subjects from them with same level of detail but not taking 4/5 years to develop them.
  13. So whats the difference between Su-33 and Su-27K? Wasn't Su-33 initially called Su-27K?
