Okay. Classical Czech battle!!! 

We need to see the quality of the KP one. Sometimes they produce better kits, sometimes worse. 

I wonder if its a KoProduction.

I doubt it is. I think it's not the first time Special Hobby and AZ/KP issue same subject simultaneously. In all cases these were different moulds.

It seems that poth recip and turbine coversions are present in the sprues already.

Panel lines are a bit softer but detail is nice, even in the cockpit. We are going to have to consider the price point difference...

Have to say that I'm not surprised by the difference in the two toolings. AZ/KP have done some good stuff but in general SH is ahead when it comes to mould finesse.

In any case, unless the price is too high for what I believe such a kit should cost, I'll have to get me one of these as soon as it's available

Detail is nice?? This thing looks like cast from plasticine in a soap mould, or the other way around.

If it was in two colors of plastic,I write  it's very bad 40-45y old Matchbox!

Well, to be honest, if you look at the pictures of the sprues, it looks as if there was a misalignment between the two halves of the mould...

Well, at least the price is reasonable, particularly as the only previously available kits were in resin and much more expensive. Guess I'll have to get me one of these and see what they are like in the flesh

Looks like the main difference between KP and SH is that KP is releasing all versions including TP at once and likely releases are not happening soon. While SH will be selling us one version every half-year. And TP is maybe coming up in several years :) and maybe not at all. 

So for those who are impatient KP is probably a better option.
