We'll see how HB mess up the AMX...

Kinetic and Hobbyboss fighting it out now ??

for so long there were only mediocre resin kits of thins interesting and operationally successful aircraft available in 48th, and now to of them!

good to know there is also a competition on concerning decals, als Caracal and FCM bring out very extensive and complete looking sets!" Hope they will fit both kits ;)

I must admit that the AMX is one of those jets that just looks good - the kind of thing we Brits would design but its more of a Ferrari than a McLaren!! Surprising that more airforces in Europe didn't buy the two seater - but then BAe and Dassault have the trainer market sewn up. Has anyone produced a 1/72nd kit?

Injected plastic kit made by Aeroclub and it wasn't great. Other kits are resin (Cunarmodel, Warrior, Liberty, etc). I hope that Kinetic and/or HB (as long as is doesn't cost 30USD...) will do a 1/72 plastic kit.

I think my money will go on the Kinetic kit from what I have seen on line, rather than Hobby Boss, but will be interesting to compare in the plastic.

hmm. ....

that is the Italian version with the vulcan canon on the port side

nose shape/ canopy looks strange to me ... a bit flat?

refueling probe seems to be above the canopy top line...?

maybe that's all through perspective though!

On the Kinetic kit you will find that the decals were designed by FCM.

Intake shape doesn't look quite right I believe.

I don't know if the Ghibli is stalling or if there's a severe crosswind but the painting looks weird :hypnotised:

actually it looks like crashing this very moment :D

maybe they should have re-positioned the runway a little bit and changed its slope to match the plane's attitude ;)

It's not of importance Laurent. Kinetic's kits are nice and already available. So why to go Hobby Boss?

Dunno. Perhaps the HB kit will be easier to find ? Perhaps it will be cheaper (HB could eventually adjust the price given that the Kinetic kits already exit) ?
