wonder what and how it will be availability wise, and of course cost wise!

I would have liked the bomb load included that was used over Syria, as an improvement over the Kinetic example...

if that is a good business approach?  no compromise towards what exactly? detail? buildability? shape? cost? 

 

 

another questions in China derivatives are coming into service (J-15)  but what about the future of the Su-33 in Russian service? the technology is old compared to Su-30SM, -34, 35....

  and its main raison d'être, the single aircraft carrier did not perform very well in Syria several years ago... nothing positive heard since.....

  • Homebee changed the title to 1/48 - Sukhoi Su-33 "Flanker-D" by Minibase - 3D renders+box art+sprues+decals - release expected before Christmas 2020

Just ordering one today, Hobbyeasy is pre ordering that kit. I am happy this year we are spoiled by the Sukhoi 27's family, GWH's UB and the KH's SU-27 followed by this naval version. I hope the next coming SU-57 confirmed by Zvelda and KH  are as detailed as its colleagues. Will see.

I am very interested in this kit and I wish the new company great success.  I never bought the Kenetic kit as every time I was ordering from Hong Kong it was out of stock.  Anyway I want this with the wings folded up to represent the deployment to Syria.  I have to say and amazingly comprehensive decal sheet.  Looking good!

We can compare the first minibase with a Zoukei Mura - F-4E, 65euros vs 90euros, and the Su-33 looks very detailled compare to the very nice Zoukei Mura - F-4E. I made my choice already. The question is; what can I do with my Kinetic's Su-33 now.

Pre-order in Europe:
https://ak-interactive.com/product/1-48-su-33-flanker-d-russian-navy-carrier-borne-fighter/

As far as I can tell EUR 89,95 includes P&P within the EU. If that's the case that's not bad at all! I looks like a rather big box of goodies!

MBK has it listed with a price tag of EUR 92,95 plus shipping:
