Went to pre order tonight but my calculations work the part out alone as £32 and that's a pre order discount and not including P&P, think I'll wait for the HAD part!

Hi, Muzz! :bye:

Yeh, ye must pre-order right now. As of April the 11th, I received 'em followin' e-mail confirmation from HAD concernin' my pre-order:

Comment:
"Thanks, Ignacio, the shipping about after 2 weeks, with thanks, Ferenc Szegedi"

As previously stated, my bit has got a long way down from Hungary to Argieland, 'n' overall price was just £16. P&P oughta be a lot less for ye in Britain.

Cheers,

I am quite impressed be the weapons set with a kit included ;)

jokes apart, the weapons look very complete, nice and detailed! not that they all'd be necessary though...

Bwahahahahahaha...!!! :lol:

Hi, Werner, my mate!

Yeh, such a large amount of armament; some 'em will come in handy for my Su-24 kit, especially all 'em bombs (as tho the Trumpy Fencer weren't yet another set of weapons with a kit included). Those BetAB 500 bombs look so sexy!

Uh-huh... The intake shock cone is a must. Me's not yet made up my mind whether it's goin' to be an Ucranian bird or nay, but soma alternative German markings would be noooiiiceee...

We are molded the first mach-cone part. After small adjustments to fit nicely to the Kit.

 

:blink: Whoa!

It's gonna be necessary to devise some kinda intake trunkin' at the end of 'em resin replacement splitters, as both 'em nose landin' gear bay 'n' cockpit tub will be seen when peepin' 'em nose head-on, methinks... :hmmm:'N' whut with 'em suck-in doors on "they're" side of 'em nose? Those will be seen as well if open 'n' not taken care of.

111 more posts 'n' me will become demonic!

Cheers,

:rofl: Yes, indeed! Oh, but never mind; as of yesterday, I was told by the mods that my quasi-pirate sort of English will no longer be tolerated on this forum.

Irritating the members for almost 8 years on this awesome forum ought to be enough.

Couldn't help but feel identified with this scene on Dodgeball... :crying:

Cybermodeler has their own build log. It seems to go together rather well for them apart from the known fuselage caveats.

 

Same experience. Think before you glue and it goes together without problem. Now just waiting the HAD resin mach cone to close the fuselage. 

Use your brain, forge your own experience, make your own judgement and don't be influenced by your prejudices and all what's written here and there about the KH kits.

It go's together well that way, but still some awkward seam clean up to do.I know people will say 'but that's modelling'.

But I'd personally rather not do it just because Kittyhawk thought stuff the modellers this is easier for us

Yes, well said, but,as you said, when using your grey stuff, (mine in this case, not very heavy I admit ! ) , it still looks more and more  like a very well shaped banana (Split).

 

But, anyway , modelling bananas is still modelling, isn't it ? Just wondering if the KH plastic has got the flavour ?

 

Very nice effort and as long as you get pleasure and satisfaction out of it ... that's what counts at the end.

 

Madcop; :D

Well, I've given my Kitty Hawk shock cone surplus part - now that I've acquired the new HAD resin correction one - an abundant layer of mornay sauce with a good sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese, which I next baked for aprox. 15 minutes on medium heat, and it all still tasted of molten styrene with a twist of an Oriental-scented release agent stuff. :eat:

Awful!

Have you noticed the missing racks in the kit? For the KKR version it's OK, but for other variants, missing two racks!  Racks D1 and D2 are for pylons D73,72,34 and 35. :wall:

A really high-quality model!!!! :suicide:

I know someone who owns both KH and HB kits. The windscreen and canopy are not the only accuracy issues...
