I have the main sprues already in my hands for a few days.

They shows a very good level of details, nice surface and a very good fit even without any locating pins.

There is quite some minor flush to remove - mostly very subtle and easy to get rid of. A bit heavoer flash on fuselage halves which is better to be sanded after gluing fuselage together.

Here are some images, more in a WIP to be posted later.

Looks promising. I really like the BU-181. I just wish someone would produce a SI-204D in 1/48th. As far as I know a i/48 version not currently available . I think MPM produced a vac with injected componets years ago.

Looks like to be Sword plastic/product, isn't it?

Czech enemy brothers syndrome?

V.P.

Definitely NOT a Sword product! Looks similar but it's made entirely by Mr. Stransky himself ;)

Gotta get this for the Soviet hack decals (but the Swiss one on the boxtop is sweeeet!)

Had the MPM one but the canopy has yellowed so badly, it looks like a VIP limo.

Just now, Paul J said:

It is  a nice kit. Ibought one from Freightdog Models. Sole UK importer I believe.  A nice price too.

 

Thanks for the plug Paul. I have some of these on order, unfortunately about a week too late for Telford but I do have a restock of the previous two boxing's which are now pretty much sold out.
