FINALLY !

The SF.260 has been in service for decades with a large number of air forces, we finally have a new injected kit after the various cottage industry kits in resin, vacform, fibreglass (yes, there was even a fibreglass kit).

Need 3 at least, Italian, Irish and at least one from some African user

Really like SF260's but I hope to God it's done better than that ALCA kit of theirs.

Glad to see that the TP (turboprop) variant is also going to be released. Now the problem will be, get this now or wait for the SH kit later ? Guess that in the end I'll get this one now and then also get the SH later... and then for the following ones I'll see which ones is better.

The box artist certainly has an unhealthy fixation for depicting the aircraft from the underwing aspect - all six releases in fact, the clean configurations suggest no ordinance on the exotics, SH should at least correct the unimaginative box art, lets hope for some extra sprue for ordnance and mounts when SH come to play with it ....

From the start of this thread, it's only taken five years to develop!  Hope the wait will be worthwhile. I hope they do a boxing with decals for the Belgian Air Force " Diables Rouges" team?

They should not be, as the two companies are unrelated.

 

That would be more interesting. I dont think thats just coincidence. I mean what are the odds that two czech companies release the same subject in the same time?
I guess KP will sale a downgraded one and SH the multimedia version. Anyway we will see it soon.
