I'll wait to see how much resin is required to fix it when it comes out.

Don't be so negative, it could be a gem of a kit.

And so it begins! The ritual rubbishing of a kit before we even see it. Truth is, absolutely no resin at all will be "required". You can opt to build straight out of box.  Expensive aftermarket resin frippery is only "required" if you personally choose it..

Now that's interesting, I've been waiting for a 1/48 T-50 non-resin kit ever since HpH released theirs.

 

There also seems to be the Su-25 there on the fourth photo, which is even more interesting for me.

- ref. KH8016? – Sukhoi Su-27UB "Flanker-C" link

- ref. KH801?? – Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot-A" link

- ref. KH801?? – Sukhoi Su-57 "Frazor" link

Fortunately, no good reference or unclassified "experts"for this one, so every "look like" kit (aka MIG-25 🤢) or kit with wrong shaped but very visible&hard to correct parts (F-101, Su-22) will be OK.

 

Looks like aftermarket manufacturers will be happy with this one like with every KH kit.

Nah, it's not judgement, hence "wait to see". It's about expectation and there is nothing wrong with it, people should be allowed to learn what to expect.

Since it's NOT a reconnaissance aircraft, it doesn't matter if it's flawless. I won't be getting one, so I can save my money for aftermarket stuff to fix my other Kitty Hawk kits. :devil:

Just an FYI: serial production of the Su-57 has just started with deliveries expected by the end of the year.  There is a good article at the Aviationist on some of the likely differences between the various prototypes and production model.  I have to assume at this point that Kitty Hawk is basing their kit on a prototype but the changes to a serial production version do not seem too problematic.  But it might be worth waiting until the Su-57 rolls off the assembly line to build it as I am sure Russian news sources will have many good pictures available as this is a big deal.  Also looks like the Su-57 might be sold to Turkey so this would be a great opportunity for a reboxing at a later date.  All in all I am excited to get my hands on this kit!
