Taking about pylons I don't see any UB-32A-24 or B8W-20 among test frames of Annetra kit....

Noone said what you see on the photos is the final set of sprues!  B)    B)    B)

(Maybe Eduard will make in 48?)

Hope not the way they made it for the 72nd scale MiG-21 which is a complete rubish!

Those look good enough to be production sprues

 

I'm hoping for a Q1 2019 release

They are test examples! There is a lot of work to do, adjustment . . . and this is only the plastic! A kit has so many other things which need to be designed also.

According to Annetra the release is planed (optimistic version) for Apr May 2019.

 

Best regards

What about the Czech Annetra Mi-17 kit in 48 th scale? It was on display along with several sprues and bits and pieces. Some parts were visibly still missing, there was no weaponry as well as some structural elements.

An interesting solution to have the TV3-117 engine bays and the main reductor housing as a separate part. It could even mean a fairly easy conversion into the early version, the original Mi-8 with TV2-117 engines.

Next to the full built airframe was a cockpit / rear cockpit section as a separate “insert” element. The pilot cockpit looks very detailed with lots of parts which is essential since the Mi-17 canopy is big and one can see basically everything that is inside.

The kit should be released in several versions each with different markings. For the first it should be as shown above, basically a European boxing. Hope that with time there will be a “pure fighter” version to represent Afganistan Russian airframes with lots of small extras. It could be an endless line with all those different users of the Hip helicopter.

Hate to seem like I'm anxious to see this kit but I am anxious to see this kit!  It appears that AMK's F-14 is now in production so my question is can this be far behind given the test sprues were out months ago.  Hope springs eternal

They have just now started shipping the Tomcat. I think it will still be til at least mid next year before we see this kit. I would also love to see it.

I'm looking forward to this much more than the projected Kittyhawk release.

Is it possible to build the RAE helicopter from this version please?

 

Yes as ZB697 & ZB698 were of Mi-17 "Hip-H" type.
