Wow, that's a monster! Not into Russian stuff as a rule, but there are some great looking kits out there now...... :cool

I already have the HobbyBoss one plus a few corrections so not allowed to buy another. I should have waited but really didn't like KH original price. I just wish I was a 'bit' younger so I could really stock up as we have never had Russian stuff in any numbers and they have to wait until I'm going doolally before releasing all these.

I take it the KH kit is better than the HB?

I have no idea until a review appears but not necessary yes because KH have their faults. The HB kit is of a prototype but can be updated with resin bits. Coldwar Studios have the correct APU tail, corrected nose and gun grills which necessitate widening the forward strakes. I'm happy with mine but will see how it goes.

Lucky Models have it for £61 inclusive with P & P. Dawns Grocery Store in China has it for £54 inclusive of P & P, see here.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kitty-Hawk-1 ... Sw5P9bCE88

This shop also has the HB version at twice the price.

UK prices are going to be way, way high before P & P.

I'm keeping an eye out for a review and comparison with the HB kit.

Anybody wanting to paint it in the 'Aubergine' topside colour AKAN have it in their selection but aircraft colours are now in that standard Russian multi-blue scheme. 'Aubergine' is also used by the Chinese on the Su-35.

If interested a review of the HobbyBoss kit is here. It does have it's problems but can be sorted with Resin corrections, makes it expensive though and I'm happy with it.
