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...
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.
Tuffz New zvezda kits are always superb and quite on the cheap side, at least with armour. So i hope it stays like that going forward

Treehugger I am not against the idea of maybe buying something expensive from other brands, but often I find, for example ship kits in 1:350 scale to be too simplistic and not worth the extra cost. And then, one is often left to wonder how terrible the accuracy is anyway even with new molds.

Slavo Hazucha Definitely got an eye on this - let´s see how it compares to the announced Kitty Hawk kit next year. If any of them is decent enough to go OOB, may be a very hot candidate for a project for me next year... Curious as what they will provide as engines, for the current "old" Al-41F1S, nice aftermarket options do exist... I just hope they do not attempt some fantasy Izdeliye-30 layout but it does not look that way from the pictures. Remains to decide if splinter or Minecraft camo is the way to go
