1/72 - MiG-19S "Farmer-C" by Kovozávody Prostějov (KP) - released

Recommended Posts

OK, that's interesting.  I suppose it was inevitable ... given that I have recently beaten the Mistercraft effort into something resembling a MiG-19!!

 

Looking forward to seeing more about this in due course because the MiG-19 is a Cold War classic, overlooked for too long (IMHO).

Built a couple of the original ones back in the late 1970s early 1980s. Loved that kit, although it was by today's standards quite awful.  It is fantastic appealing airplane.

About time too!  Hopefully it will contain the parabrake housing so we can make a Shenyang F-6!

What's happened!?! Homebee's post is already 12 hours old and nobody has criticised the shape of a single component, depth of the panel lines, or moaned about it being the wrong scale/sub-type/subject yet! :shrug:

Are we all as pleased to see this one as I am? :hmmm:

....and after Modelsvit and trumpeter, then Zvezda....on scene going MiG-19 from Tamiya & MiG-19 from Airfix!😁

But, first, according to the laws of the genre, we must see the epic battle, when one Czech manufacturers  will strangle another!😁😁

I mean, now the MiG-19 should appear from Special Hobby!

😁😁😁

I just hope it's going to be any better than their  last release… the Aero L-159A ALCA that is a real cr@p !. You don't even get wheelbays ! and I won't talk about the cockpit! FROG did better in the 60s ! 

😡 I think they will just "rework" the Bilek kit !

It is fascinating to read all the flak that KP is getting on Czech forums for this "new" kit on its home ground.

Oh hang on...

 

-That's not my scale

-If only Airfix had done it

-Why couldn't they have made - xxx - (insert totally unrelated subject)

-When will Airfix release - xxx - (insert Spitfire related subject)

-I'll hang on until they rescale it up to 1/48 but hopefully Airfix will do it instead

-That's too expensive

-Just trying to find a blurred photo of a real MiG-19 so I can show how the kits pitot probe is too long, therefore I will NOT buy this kit.....

 

But well done KP for finally giving some attention to this aircraft

I'm curious Gabor, what are they saying?

I think if you go to the KP Aero L-159 thread on this section, have a look at what they're offering, I think it'll be pretty obvious what the Czech forums are laughing at...

I hate to say, but I'm losing a lot of faith in AZ/KP these days.

 

I bought their 1/72 Z-37 kit not long after it hit the shelves. After my initial excitement wore off,  I noticed how crude and rushed it looked and how many key features had been left to the aftermarket and scratchbuilders to tend to. Not long after came the announcement that Eduard would be puting out their own 1/72 Z-37 kit.

 

I learned after talking to one of the guys at one of my local shops, AZ got the fuselage shapes wrong and will be doing a corrected reissue at some point.

 

I knew The ALCA kits were getting a lot of flak on the Czech sites. After having looked at them in the shop, all that flak and more are well deserved. I can't believe after as long as they strung us along about an ALCA kit that they could hose it so badly.

 

Really no excuse for that sort of thing when the real deal and those who made it sit inside the same national borders as you do.
