Ok that's the dilemma, the futur KH or the GWH's ? will see

Well, unless the designers at KH have made a quantum leap in well... design, and from what I saw in someone's Models Flankoff, there's quite a lot less dilemma than there are frying pans made of butter...

GWH all the way!

 

The Flankoff (NSFW, Matt's the Gordon Ramsey of modelling):

 

 

Cheers,

If there was, we would know it by now!

I think they may have been distracted by matters COVID, most of the world has been on hold this year..

Goodbye my dear Academy Su-27UB...

But this was long overdue, no?

 

I only have 1 left to do as  Russian Knights single seater as I also have the respective Begemot decals that won't fit the rightly scaled kits...

With Eduard's new Spitfire Mk.1 on the way it looks like August will be an expensive one.

Unless your ordering direct from a Far East retailer, maybe not, some of GWH previous releases have taken an age to reach these shores, December/January anyone?

Nice, like the dual air to ground pylons, not seen them before in a kit, I like the way windscreen is moulded too.

Good.

Does "Flanker family" include Su-37 :hmmm:

That could easily be the kit of the year, but I do not think. I am not sure if the Su-37 could be sharing many moulds with the Su-27 so it would probably need a separate new set of tooling.

Exactly. 37th has new wings, new fins, new engines, canards, cockpit...
