Treehugger Finally a 1:48 scale model. Was there ever one from other kit makers? Although I don't fancy stealth jets, I really hope this isn't going to be some $100 kit. I wouldn' t think so, but a lot of new 1:48 kits from other brands seems so expensive imo.
Anthony D'Agostino Not sure if you guys are seeing the price, but one stores shows this kits at nearly $200! To me, for a kit like this, unless it has motors that they forgot to mention, there is no way I would pay that much for it, not even close.

Treehugger Some stores have laughably high prices, so that one store I see can't possibly be close to some expected retail price.

Slavo Hazucha I definitely expect this to land in the 50-€ range...

BigJay Considering it's zvezda i think it will be quite cheap, their pe-8 kits go for arround 20€ and are huge

Anthony D'Agostino I have absolutely zero experience with this company, does anyone know their level of detail, quality of the plastic and accuracy of the scale? I keep reading that their other kits are cheap, or preferable, inexpensive is a kinder word. Unless they really are cheap, bad fit, lots of marks on visible surfaces, lousy decals, things like that, which make a build go from pleasant to a hair pulling, fingernail biting nightmare. The saying "you get what you pay for" usually holds true in about 90% of the consumer market. I like inexpensive, as long as the quality still remains high.

Nathan Dempsey I've only built some of Zvezda's 1:144 kits, but they go together nice. In fact I already have approval from the wife to buy this kit whatever price it comes out. She knows I want it that bad The Sea Vixen and Cessna O-2 are also on this pre-approved list.

Anthony D'Agostino Nice, always good to have the bosses approval! I have tried a different tactic on mine, so far, I think it's working too. Instead of being in charge of the budget this month, I gave her free reign to do it herself. Within three days, she said "I finally understand why you are always stressed", and the guilt of having the control, means she is much more willing to spend on me, than herself, because she feels greedy????
Two kits and three tool packs later, and I am all smiles without the stress! Until next month, when I have to control the budget again☹️.....
ekard-ynot detail will be interesting, as this is basically 'secret' - without too many details... should be good against a Kinetic Su-33 and GWM Su-35

Federico Burchianti I think the main issue remains the intenal bays, as they are still classified and there isn't any good photos showing them, so that even the new Zvezda 1/72 model doesn't have them. Thus, I fear that both the Zvezda and Kitty Hawk will be soon obsete and will be replaced by a 'service version' of the Su-57 when the first Felons ordered by Russian governement will roll out from the production line and more details will be available. At the point I'm pretty sure that Zvezda will release a 'new' 1/48 kit for the Su-57, probably updating the parts of this one (changing one or more sprue).

Jasper Breur Zvezda were the first to produce an accurate T-14 Armata, so let's see what they can do with this one...
