Kitty Hawk's 1/48th Scale Su-22M-3 & M-4

Recommended Posts

Really. just googled and there seems to be ones which look as the kits, fully loaded, and others with nothing slung underneath which look higher on the front.

Looks good. I just hope the fit is a marked improvement over their earlier offerings.

I may have to save up for one, if they don't do a "Banshee" on it. :evil_laugh:

as mentioned above, if a bit of work on the lower windscreen  / alteration of the struts is it, then a massive improvement...cannot wait to see the first build review.

The side wind screen will not put me off this one...

I would expect for the experts though to comment on the correct (or not) version representation...

 

(For now, definitely in my shopping list!)

I think it is important to compare against exactly the same type.

Hi all,

 

It's plain to see the difference in the windscreen sidepanels shape, oddly the box-art depicts this correctly; about the ground stance one can see that the actual nosewheel fork is about 70º from the vertical but the kit's fork is about 45º!

  
How can such glaring errors pass all the checks is something I can hardly understand.

I hope this kit will build up nicely or I will pass buying it.

What I don't understand is how the kit has inaccuracies that the CAD it was based on didn't have.

The angle of the wheel fork was ok on the CAD too.

If these are the big problems then I dont understand the problem the canopy is easy fixed when one mask it and the landing gear  is also a easy fix.

We as modeleres should be a happy gang looking at what is being released the last couple of years. . We should also stop complaining and start building instead of complaining about the kits. I mean even brands as tamiya and the likes will not make THE PERFECT model.

So please enjoy the hobby and be happy that there are still companies that bring us the models we can enjoy

Hi robvd,

When I buy a model kit I'm paying for it so I have every right to want the best possible product for my money. And if we, as customers and modellers, do not point out these and other mistakes progress will never happen so it's not a case of simply "enjoy the hobby and be happy".


Are the faults easily fixable? So much the better but even better would be not have anything to fix. I hope this model builds nicely as I want one in my Soviet Air Forces collection.

Best regards, 

 

Rui

Well compared to the other kits of this type, this will probably become the 'best product'. 

 

I'm still apprehensive about how the fit will be, but, something about the test build suggests a slightly better fitting Kitty Hawk kit than usual.

Nobody has said these are big problems.  People have said they are obvious problems.  People have said they are strange problems, since they were added to the digital model.  But nobody has said they are big problems.

Looks good enough for me to ignore that I have an OEZ kit in my stash already together with a Pavla cockpit. Good thing I didn't spring for the CE wings/flaps set.

Looks good on the sprues, just hope it goes together well. Not liking the look of the fuel tanks, some replacements will be required I think.

Looking at Mike's review the windscreen on the review sample appears to have rounded corners, not as pronounced as the CAD's but more so than the test shot build to my eye.

He did say "look" rather than "read" so please don't get too cocky now :D 

 

JK, thanks for the prompt review.
