Maciej Bellos That was a short period of preordering status... Michael I am envious of you. This aircraft has a very stylish shape when seen from the side. It looks very racey if youget what I mean. Post pictures of the sprues if you have some time to spare.

Eelco Gregoire Pictures of the sprues are also to be seen @luckymodel.

Maciej Bellos Thanks Eelco! I saw them but they are not so good. Big parts of the sprues are out of focus. One thing I noticed is that the fuselage comes in three parts which may be a source of trouble. One nice feature is the stabs where the wings are to be inserted. Considering that the real aircraft had wing tip wheels as the Harrier, proper allignment of the wings is essential.

Michael Phillips I did order this from Lucky Model, however I do not yet have it. It will be a little bit before it gets here... but it is released! I just added it to my stash since I have it on the way.
I will post pics when the kit arrives!

Soeren . If this kit is as good as their Tu-2, we will have another winner here.
Think I order mine in the next couple days
Soeren . Probably none.
I think your best chance will be to order it directly from China.

Selman Yarar Molding nice, rivets are there, not exaggerated but everybody has a different taste, so some will love it, some will hate. For me it doesn't make big difference. The instruction sheet is quite complex and full of errors. Paint codes and definitions are wrong. For example for matt white is given Gunze H1 which is glossy white. For Flat Gull Grey is given H11 and this is matt white not a grey. For Dark Grey they gave H308 which is a rather lighter grey. There are 2 different radomes, 3 different pitot versions, 2 different vertical stabilizers. There are 12 different plane illustrations in the back and you have to chose the radome/pitot/stabilizer combination by chosing one of the 12 planes. But all these 12 are prototypes, test planes or early planes. None of them is marked as late type. But all of hem show the late type armament placement. This is really confusing.

Soeren . I would never trust the colors from a instruction. Bobcat (ex Xuntong) is not the first who made a mistake.
Hobby Boss is also really good in that.
Besides that the first kit reviews looks really promising and if it is as good as their Tu-2, we will have another great exotic kit here!
