Selman Yarar
I can't believe my eyes. Look at that price on this page (Hobby Search). 165 USD !!!! for a 1:48 kit, Is that true? Whether this is a joke or we are going to get something extraordinary... If not we should unite to protest the model kit producers which create a huge inflation on the model scale market.

playtime 222 WTF is it made out of? Gold?

Guus As they say, "never fly the Mark 1 of any aircraft" or install any Operating System on your computer until there is at least one service pack :) There seem to be a few of these in the pipeline so I'm going to wait until someone has sniffed the plastic before parting with my cash. Still rooting for a 1/72 though ....

Bryce Nicely MSRP could be around that, but I wouldn't put it past 70$
07. September 2016 at 21:48:08
Melf Boyens It's not the first Hobby Boss in 1:48 that is expensive . Compared to Su-27 or other Russian jets of same dimension what is the average price for them 40-50 EUR? I guess Holger has the right price feeling.
08. September 2016 at 21:07:44
Selman Yarar For me the 2016 industrial standard for 1:48 jets is the AMK Mig-31. It is technically the most sophisticated kit on the market. Look at the "one piece" front part, look at the "one piece missiles". Its price is still between 55-70 USD in the far east. Companies like Hobby Boss usually divide the kits in as much parts as possible to be able to write 400+ or whatsoever parts on the box to increase the price. After building the AMK Mig-31 no other kit in the same class gives me the satisfaction anymore. So the price should be maximum at the same level. Otherwise those companies will only be creating inflation on the kit market and WE will (or won't) pay for it, no one else.... PS: try to follow Ebay and you will see what people are offering nowadays: e.g. for the ESCI Tu-22 for around 100 USD, althought there is a brand new and much better kit from Modelsvit on the market for 50-60 USD (in Ukraine of course). The trend is towards pulling much more money from our pockets to cover their costs, because the worldwide number of hobby modelers is unfortunately decreasing.

Bryce Nicely Well said

Cortex Thank you for bringing up this topic, I brag about this all the time. The only way to have our demands listened to is to stop buying ridiculously expensive kits .. simply boycott them and switch to cheaper brands.
Other ways: encourage local manufacturers, and focus on bargains of older and 2nd hand kits, we are in 2016 already so any 20 years old kit will be from 1996 and there are fantastic kits released by that time and available now for steal prices.

Phenix Personnaly, even if I'm nut of that plane, I will at least wait for the Kittyhawk offering ... Sorry HB, but it's not the best idea to insanely increase prices . Looks they forgot they aren't alone on that market ;)

Selman Yarar Never again kopro decals!!!

Łukasz Gliński Why not if I may ask? (I have those in my stash too)
22. December 2016 at 12:54:33
Selman Yarar Because they are very thin even after wetting the model's surface they stick immediately where they touch. ıt was a very difficult application after being used to cartograph-style decals. Later I had the same problem with my 1:48 Smer Su-22.

Denis Kuleshov Very nice. Looks awesome all three.
07. September 2016 at 08:53:30
Melf Boyens All three look awesome. as to convenience of the built, which model would you value most although I guess that Zevzda and revel share the same mold?
07. September 2016 at 11:04:42
Selman Yarar All three are absolutely the same mold, actually the plastic inner bag of Academy kit had a label "made in Russia" :) . That means all of them were molded at Zvezda but packed separately. Although the kit is the same, the main difference was the decal set. Revell's decals are absolutely top quality. Zvezda's decal were poor as usual and Academy's decals were the same as Zvezda's but printed thicker thus otherwise problematic, they did not bend on the side antennas and did not stick well (although i used a lot of Markfit strong). The Academy kit contained an extra small PE cockpit sheet, but very simple. It contains a beautiful sketch for masking and painting, these are the only differences. Pricewise the academy kit was very expensive (I spent 20 $ for Zvezda, 27 for Revel and 38 for Academy). The revell kit had absolutely no flash, the Academy one minimum flash but the Zvezda one had significantly more. I would prefer the Revell kit, then Zvezda and Academy. If you buy the Academy kit, try to find another decal set.

Bart Goesaert very nice trio, love the paler ones above the blue one
07. September 2016 at 13:36:57
Ekki Excellent work!
07. September 2016 at 18:33:55
Selman Yarar I painted the paler ones with Akan paints. The blue with Gunze.
07. September 2016 at 20:06:24
Spanjaard really nice trio. i agree with Bart the paler ones look better. thanks a lot for the information, will be really useful when i get one :)

Selman Yarar All in all a bad kit. Bad quality plastic, "mad riveter" in action, lots of correction work, bad bad bad decals!
I needed to paint (freehand) to replace some of the damaged decals.
I wasn't sure if i wanted to finish it or throw it into the trashcanbut somehow it survived.
One of my bad kits.
10. November 2016 at 18:40:53

10. November 2016 at 18:42:37
