After AFV Club/PMA (link), Freedom Model Kits (FMK - http://freedommks.com/) is also to release a 1/48th AIDC F-CK-1 MLU  "Ching-Kuo" family:

- ref.18005 - AIDC F-CK-1A MLU IDF (std) - or F-CK-1C

- ref.18005SP - AIDC F-CK-1A MLU IDF solo display

- ref.18006 - AIDC F-CK-1B MLU IDF (std) or FCK-1D

- ref.18006SP - AIDC F-CK-1B IDF

Look at that aircraft designation without inserting an extra vowel! :P

Protecting or attacking JMSDF P-3s? In the first proposed box art were two PLAAF H-6s! ^_^

For the record, Freedom Model Kits has also a 1/32nd F-CK-1 family in its 2017 programme (with - nearly - the same box art):

The F-CK-1 are for me good old memories: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234994185-rocaf-tour-2015/

Named after Chiang Ching-kuo a late President of the Republic of China these fighters are commonly designed Indigenous Defense Fighter or IDF since the end of the Taiwan authoritarian power in the mid-1980s. Chiang Ching-kuo was a son of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek the 1st President (for life) from the Republic of China.

So which one between AGV and Freedom Model's? is there the same kit for both manufactures?

 

I don't know about it being the same kit but the Freedom Models TigerShark builds very nicely indeed. The UCAV was very nice indeed but, naturally, there's no cockpit to bother about.

AFV-Club (Link) and Freedom Model Kits future F-CK-1s are definitely different kits.
