Floyd is Army and KH has never released an OH-58. I'll refrain from commenting on another slightly incorrect sentence in there as the written sarcasm, friendly rib poking won't be taken as it's intended.
Apologies. Any Army guy called a Marine should get puffed up a bit. I sure do. LOL
They released a Little Bird AH-6J, my mistake.
I actually see great improvement with KH. Now, the P-39 was an unfortunate train wreck. What happened, who knows, the T-6 was OK, a few basic issues with shape, but nothing serious other than the aircraft that was measured was an air show performer that had been crashed and rebuilt from rubble who knows how many times.
The T-28 is a real dream to me.
Here's what I think is happening. You gave two teams. The American Team, and the Chinese Team.
American Team is made up of designers, researchers, and experts. All are modelers and aviation fanatics.
Chinese Team is King. They're the production team. The money's there. They have final veto power, so some dumb stuff gets injected into the mix. Stupid production decisions along the lines of breaking a 48 scale fuselage into six sections for no reason whatsoever. And ejector pin towers in the oddest of spots, although they've gotten better.
But here's the rub. I build model flying machines. Out of resin and plastic. I don't assemble erector sets, I build models. That in itself involves some problem solving. I expect it. Maybe I should expect more? But I find KH kits accurate in shape with exquisite exterior detail. I can build on that.
Take a look at the new Chinese Air Force Su-35 in 1/48. They've jumped to the big league with that one.
