Yeah but you know the kinetic fuselage will be made up of 17 component parts that will be a nightmare to align.

 

Well:

- Kinetic did not announce a Su-34, Kitty Hawk did

- kit features prediction based on previous releases is somewhat questionable: things change, producers may have access to ressources they didn't have access to in the past

I would rather it not be £100, but if that's what it is going to cost then there is nothing we can do about it...

 

Amen brother, amen.

 

Finally someone who understands. Stop whining or start buying.

 

LOL

No reply from Portugal. Obviously mañana is the word of the day, or they don't want the business. They might sell a few at £75 seeing it's £120 over here. Not good business. Their 'bank transfer' screen is in Portuguese and gives no account numbers, so there is nothing I can do until they wake up.

 

They´re are doing some remodelling in their facilities, that´s problably why they still haven´t answered. Normally after you complete the purchase they send an email with the account number or paypal information. Try giving them a shout on Facebook, search for Bigcat Modelismo.

 

Cheers,

Bruno

From Portugal is more "amanhã". "Mañana" is from Spain...

Does that mean they take even longer? I sent another email today, and that has been ignored as well.

Fingers crossed one new KH resource will be a decent decal printer.... :)  Cant say Ive been blown away by KH so far, but its early days for them so lets wait and see.

 

Cmon - no reviews yet? Honest reviews...?

Had an update from Portugal - apologies for delay, shop being refurbed. They can't give me final details yet as it's still preorder status.

Watch this space.

Singapore dollars? That works out at around £40. :)

Ay carumba! Look at the size of the Su 34 and Mig 31 boxes in comparison to the Su 27 box!

Yep. Prepare some space. It takes up quite a bit of real estate. Here it is in comparison to a Tamiya 1/32 P-51 kit box and a HB 1/48 Su-27 box.

Good to see a bought kit nose photo. Does look a bit off, but hopefully an easy fix.

What we need now is a scale profile pic of the real thing next to the HB plastic and see whats what. :)

Superbly crude MS Paint cutout on top of an unknown accuracy line drawing looks like this.... :)

 

sukhoi-su-34-fullback-2%20nose%20comp%20

Which looks rather bloomin close quite surprisingly.

Im sure somone with Photoshop and a less beer driven mouse can do a far better job...
I got the line drawing from here - http://www.the-blueprints.com/blueprints/modernplanes/sukhoi/47247/view/sukhoi_su-34_(fullback)/

Do you know if they do international delivery? Or do they have a website/email address?

Let us see the nose from few angles PLEASE!

 

Man, how awful..

 

Just buy the kit and wait for Quickboost for a fix or correct it.  If you have the skills

Or just leave it as it is as it doesnt actually appear to be a mile out of being accurate. If you have the filling skills...

I think it is quite good. Not for the price though. But definitely buildable.

A bit crude - but the result of 10 minutes work in Paintshop Pro.......

Add a little "pointy" and its all good I reckon. Seems to me theres far too much being made of it, but I could well be wrong.

An overlay (thats better than my effort) will reveal all... cmon guys! :)

I meant regards the panel lines. Sanding required there anyway, so with a bit of luck some successful (fairly minor I reckon) reshaping shouldnt be much bother.

 

Agreed, theres a tonne of plastic in that box, the weapon selection is great to see for the 34 as well as the spares stash. I really want one once prices have settled. :)
