Now this is typical... Trumpeter has stolen this picture from panzer-modell.de. Funny fact is that it depict the E-5 from AMUSING HOBBY! How deep can a company sink? And what is really nasty? On Facebook they blocked the owner of this "boxart" and deleted all his comments ... So this E-5 is away from my wishlist!🙁
hmm... is it coincidence? Consindering the fact that you need to study the original or need very good references to create a highly detailed kit. You also need to do the tooling engineering and tooling production. That takes some time and why should Teumpy be faster than others? Announcements are normally not done 6 months ahead, are they?
And, Trumpy is no longer significantly cheaper than than the other brands. If their goal was to create cheap alternatives to the other kits it didn't work out imo. Or would you prefer Trumpy's T-10 over Meng's?
I honestly believe that at least some Chinese manufacturers share the knowledge and researches, maybe even engineering. See for the T-14 it took them 2 years after Panda and Takom to release it, 1 year after Zvezda. Or look at the Kraz 260 + 6322 - in 2015 Takom released them, Trumpy announced but didn't release them, right? Took them 2 years to release those under HobbyBoss lable which belongs to the same company as Trumpy. Did Takom maybe bail out from the "deal"? Also no KV-5, no T29 or T30 from Trumpy on the way.
Oh and BTW: Don't worry about Facebook - KPCh announced a crackdown on VPNs in China, soon Facebook will no longer be present here... 🙁
This is SOP for the Chinese. See something, copy it and sell it cheaper... take a look on Ebay for the Alpine & Kirin figures, that are shipped "without the box".
Remember Trumpeter also stole Rinaldi's E-100 turret design and gave him no credit either.

Thank you very much my dear!
That kit itself is rather on the mediocre side i guess.
You did a great job with the Jever Headlamp 🙂 👍
The kit is really far away from beeing good. But nevertheless it was fun.😉
Great result 👍
Indeed very nice Holger!

Oh yes, Phil! I hope, i can get my hands on it!😢
This kit will be an act of defiance. I've sold the kit... But I can recommend the Me 262 kits from Hobby Boss... Though the scale is 1:48!!!
But it's your choice... ;.)
Hey Mike, scale doesnt matters to me! But i know, this will require a tough piece of work!
Hmmmmmmmmmm....................... you do it :-D
If anyone has built this kit as a Aufklarer or straight A version, I need the cannon nose conversion bits. I'm going to convert a newer tool kit, as I can't find one of these vintage birds for a decent price.
OOo wow holly after a kit! I am so in
